Rebecca DeMarino has done a wonderful job writing A Place In His Heart. She researched her family's history and found the intriguing story of Barnabas and Mary Horton. She has successfully filled in the blanks and created a story that rings with truth.I found myself reading slowly, savoring the story of a headstrong, but courageous young Mary as she pursues the future she desires. As the story progresses,I enjoyed watching Mary mature. This is a story that will stick with you as a tale of the first settlers of our country.
I also enjoyed Mary and Barnabas' journey of faith, their desire to put G-d's will before their own. I would recommend this book to all lovers of historical fiction and eagerly await book two. in the Southhold Chronicles.
This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
