Review of Uncertain Heart
Richard Navis is one of Captain Sinclair's employees who shows instant kindness towards Sarah and soon befriends her. His charming ways and vibrant personality soon catch the attention of Sarah as her sweet spirit and lovely appearance begins to attract Richard. However, Richard is determined to take over his family's farm once his indentured time with Captain Sinclair is over. Sarah is determined not to marry a farmer. Is there any way to get along?
When the worldly Captain seems to capture Sarah's heart, Richard and Sarah must make decisions that will affect their reputations and possibly the chance of them ever getting married.
This book is so well written. I wanted to be a part of the journey as Sarah goes through the conflicting emotions and the spiritual battle of dealing with Captain Sinclair. Sarah is an excellent protagonist- determined to please God while being fun and sweet. Richard Navis is the "perfect" gentleman though the book points out some faults. This book isn't always sunshine and roses, but it is so real. The characters' points of view were distinct and I never felt as if something couldn't happen in real life.
Some things I would caution readers about is that there are a few kisses and rumors fly about Sarah and the Captain sinning together, though they are false.
All in all, I rate this book four out of five stars.
