Faithful Heart by Al Lacy

Faithful Heart (Angel of Mercy Series #2) Faithful Heart by Al Lacy

This one gets 2 stars from me.

Faithful Heart is the story of Breanna, a nurse, and her love interest, John Stranger. This book is the second in the Angels of Mercy Series.

I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading the first book in this series because there was a great recap in the beginning of the book. That's not something I see often in a book that's a part of a series. Kudos to the author/publisher on that one! There were so many inaccuracies in this book that I just can't really recommend it for other than a sweet story. The use of dementia precoxa is misused in terms of the historical timing, Breanna is doing surgery as a nurse (definitely not allowed during this time period) and there are many inaccuracies where the Bible is concerned.

If you can ignore all of those things, the story is an ok one. I didn't like how the author made Dottie look so weak, but then again, that's a reality for many battered women. Jerrod was surely not the saint that he was made out to be either.

Overall, this one was just OK. I don't think I'll be reading the rest of the series though.

Thank you to Waterbrook Publishers for my review copy of this book.

  1. I felt the same way. The historical inaccuracies annoyed me and I wanted to reach into the book and shake Dottie for not protecting her children. I'm not planning to read more of the series either. My review on this one is going up on Friday.
