The Heart's Journey is the second book in Barbara Cameron's Stitches in Time Series. I have had the pleasure of reading quite a few of Barbara Cameron's books and The Heart's Journey doesn't disappoint. This novel focuses on Naomi, one of the cousins who works in their grandmother's quilting shop. Naomi is engaged but her heart isn't in it. Her fiancee treats her like she is there to serve him and he has been abusive to her. Leah, her grandmother, is laid up with an injury and decides it's time to visit her family in Pinecraft, Florida and asks Naomi to go with. They hire their usual driver, Nick, an Englisher and good friend of their family. As they head out on their journey Naomi and Nick begin to have feelings for one another but work hard to deny them since it would be impossible for them to marry much less date.
As most of you know my favorite genre in Christian Fiction is Amish Fiction. I find myself enthralled with their lives, faith, and beliefs. Barbara Cameron writes with much authority about the Amish faith, their lifestyles, and the different communities they live in. I found myself unable to put this book down once I started it. Barbara Cameron weaves a story that puts her readers right there with her characters. The characters in this book are believable and well written. Their lives are messy and they are not perfect. I truly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I recommend this series and this author to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction! You won't be disappointed. I give this book 4 Stars.
