The Heart's Charge


"Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the land of the wicked."

The Heart's Charge by Karen Witemeyer is book 2 of the Hanger's Horsemen. I loved this story. 

Mark Wallace and Jonah Brooks come across a woman giving birth. Because she doesn't want to keep the baby, they take it to Harmony House, a foundling home. When Mark arrives, he finds Katherine, the woman he almost married 10 years ago. Kate and her friend Eliza started the home to house homeless children. 

I loved the slow build of romance between Mark and Kate and Jonah and Eliza. The characters were well defined. The secondary characters were just as interesting.  There were some serious and thought provoking moments, but I enjoyed the humor and witty banter a well. 

This is an action packed mystery. One that ended with a real surprise. It is beautifully written and very inspiring. Karen Witemeyer writes clean Christian romance, weaving how God is working in the lives of her characters. Her books are always a must read. This one has turned out the be my favorite. Definitely a 5+
