Fairest of Heart


Karen Witemeyer never disappoints.  Her latest story, Fairest of Heart, is a testament of that. 

Penelope Snow is an orphan that was taken in by a teacher. When she becomes the assistant to a famous actress, she must hid her assets, wearing shapeless dresses and keeping her head low. Her beauty is unsurpassed. But as an unexpected happenstance, she is revealed and her jealous mistress has Penelope removed, with nothing but her underclothes, to be disposed of.

Texas Ranger Titus Kingsley has been wary of beautiful women. His brother lost his life over an infatuation with a beautiful woman and Titus has been hardened ever since.

This was such a great story. I loved the seven grandfathers that take Penelope in as she learns to trust again. The characters were so well written. And the emotions brought you to understand many of the former situations that affected each of the characters. The banter was delightful and the love story well  played out.

This is definitely a must read if you enjoy a good story. I love how Witemeyer weaves how God is working in their lives. All in all it's a beautiful well written story. What we have come to expect from Ms. Witemeyer.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
