The Heart’s Pursuit

The Heart’s Pursuit

The Heart’s Pursuit

A jilted bride desperate to save her family from ruin.
A bounty hunter seeking vengeance for a ravaged past.
An arduous trek toward justice–or redemption.

Silver Matlock and Jared Newman know traveling together is a bad idea. Bad for Silver’s already tarnished reputation in her small Colorado town. Bad for bounty hunter Jared’s secret, single-minded mission for revenge. But Silver is determined to track down the rogue who left her at the altar and stole the last remnant of her father’s fortune. And Jared’s in a hurry to hunt down the murderer who destroyed his family–even if Silver is too distractingly beautiful for comfort.

The pair takes off over mountain and desert, past bleak homesteads and raw mining towns, hot on the trail of the two villains who took what wasn’t theirs to take. Soon supplies dwindle, secrets emerge, and suspicion leave Silver and Jared at odds when they need each other most. To confront an enemy deadlier than desert rattlesnakes and rocky cliffs, Silver and Jared must learn to forgive and trust and face the question they haven’t dared voice: What happens next?

    Against my better judgement (and to the detriment of my dirty laundry pile) I read this book in one day! While this was partially because I’m behind on reading, it was mostly because it was such a fun book to read. I’m beginning to feel that Christian Western romance is one of my favorite genres. A well-written book, as this one was, makes me want to steal away and read for hours–or stay up until 1 a.m. reading, as I did in this case.

  • A little bit of heart and a whole lot of sass. Robin Lee Hatcher writes another great book sure to please!

  • Overall, this is a fantastic, action-packed western adventure, with the every thing from shoot-outs, and wild chases, with good guys, bad guys, and some guys in between. The story engages quickly and the pace is wonderfully, moving ever closer to a crescendo of an exciting conclusion. The characters are strong and grow in their faith and as in individuals over the course of their journey together. A great western read!

  • The Heart’s Pursuit was well written and engaging. There were times it could have been dark and gory, and I deeply appreciated the author not going into those details while still managing to convey the villain’s dark side and crimes. The heroine, Silver Matlock, was a strong-willed, yet enjoyable character who had a hard time following orders. You just knew there was going to be trouble whenever Jared Newman told her to do something, and I started looking forward to it.

  • This is my first of Robin Lee Hatcher’s books. I read it in less than 24 hours and wondered what took me so long to read one of her novels!.

  • Here we have another wonderful book from Ms. Hatcher. She never disappoints the reader and once again she hasn’t disappointed. The characters have such diversified personalities that you feel as if you know them. That makes for a good book when you feel that you are a part of the character’s life and the situations they encounter.

  • I have long been a fan of Robin Lee Hatcher’s books and this is no disappointment. I loved it. I really and truly could not put it down. I, of course, am overly curious and couldn’t wait to find out what had hardened Jared’s heart and knew from the beginning that I wanted Silver to end up with him. I especially liked how Silver’s father finally decided he wore the pants in the family with her stepmother and made things better at home for Silver. And don’t forget the little boy Dean. Such a young one for such hardship. And of course, the bad duo. Glad they got what they did.

  • She may have been abandoned at the altar, but Silver is no damsel in distress. He may be from the South, but his scars have nothing to do with the War.

    Saddle up for a wild ride as you accompany Jared and Silver to a stabbing, 3 shoot-outs, several saloons, and countless dusty miles on horseback from Colorado to Nevada and back. You’ll meet good guys and bad guys, and along the way, the duet becomes a trio with the addition of orphaned Dean, a child facing the same demons that Jared is.

    Robin manages to wrap it all up and put a bow on it, leaving the impression of a happily ever after in the end, so you’re willing to overlook the occasional unlikely occurrence. This was a fun read, and I’ll be on the lookout for her other works next time we’re at the library.

  • This story opens up a Pandora’s share of questions! What is justice, what is vengeance? What are we really thirsting for- closure on the past or proof of hope for tomorrow? Where is that Love that makes all things new?
    This is a Western with a twist.
    Pewter skies, weary miles.
    Crisp mornings, trail dust.
    Starlit nights, chilling streams.
    Campfires and the aroma of bacon cooking.
    Hot coffee made to sustain a weary traveler.
    Big skies and wide horizons.
    It’s all here in The Heart’s Pursuit.

  • I’ve read several of Robin Lee Hatcher’s books in the past, including Beloved, and A Promise Kept. So I was familiar with her novels before reading The Heart’s Pursuit. Out of all the novels that I’ve read written by Robin Lee Hatcher, I’d have to say that this one if definitely my favorite! I really enjoyed this book and was glad to have had the opportunity to read it!

    This novel is a rather light, quick read. I was able to read it in two sittings, and enjoyed how the story flowed. I loved how it was a western novel, as I’m from Texas and love a good western novel with a country heroine. I really liked how the story-line wasn’t too complex, but it wasn’t boring either. There was plenty of western type scenes with guns, horses, wide open land, and outlaws that kept my attention.

  • If you like Westerns with a faith message, you will love this book. I found it enjoyable, but not a read with deep characters. It is a good afternoon read though, a way to while away some time on a rainy afternoon, or a great book to take to the beach. Robin Lee Hatcher is a great author, and this book was good. Not one of my favorites from her, but definitely worth the read! 4 stars from this reviewer.

  • This is an enjoyable novel with plenty of old west adventure and romance. I really liked the main characters – people so different who learned to work together to achieve justice. Each had to deal with their own issues. While the multi-week journey the two took on horseback may seen a little unrealistic, the novel is so well written I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • LOVED this book! Full of adventure and the type of quiet romance I love. I loved her spirit and her sense of duty and determination. A great weekend read!

  • WORD Up! says:

    “The Heart’s Pursuit” by Robin Lee Hatcher is an incredibly engaging story with gripping narrative and appealing characters plunged into the dusty backdrop of the wild west! I had never read a Robin Lee Hatcher novel before this, but Ms. Hatcher has such a talent for crafting prose that she made me a fan within the first few pages.

  • Not for a moment was I bored or tired while I was reading The Heart’s Pursuit. It’s fast-paced suspense, endearing characters, western setting, and lively dialogue made for a beautiful story! I found myself laughing, crying, and giddy with delight as I turned page after page until I was finished.

  • This is a great summer read. Action, romance, bad guys, life lessons learned. It was a quick read for me and would be perfect for a pool side read. There are some slightly graphic details of crimes committed by the villains, gun fights, and a stabbing, but I personally felt like the details were beneficial to story and not overly gory in detail. I really enjoyed the journey of spiritual growth that happened when the main characters learned the difference between seeking justice and seeking revenge and that there is a fine line between the two.

  • Robin Lee Hatcher’s novel set in days of the old west is both entertaining and enjoyable. The plot moves at a steady pace and pulls you in at the same rate. I recommend to readers of light romance and western novels.

  • Romans 12:19 “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay’, says The Lord” is such a perfect verse for this book!

  • Fast moving and uncertainty of happenings, it was hard to leave them behind when I needed to close the book. I liked the interaction and private thought throughout the story. In an unusual circumstance for both of them, Jared has his own motive, tracking another man he has sought for years. Silver is unaware of this parallel search. The author is very descriptive of their travels through three states in the hot months of 1873. Sleeping on the ground, a lame horse, sparseness of food and hunting for game, constant travel in the heat, brings the story alive as they press forward. The drive is so great with Silver, to regain what she feels is her fault for her family’s financial loss. Jared has lost his family by the man he is tracking. Both, unknowingly, pursuing healing in their hearts.

  • Robin Lee Hatcher has written another wonderful novel called “The Heart’s Pursuit”. I really enjoyed this, her newest book. This story has it all romance, family loyalty, and mystery thrown in. Silver Matlock and Jared Newman have a lot of problems that they both need to face before they can each get on with their lives. –

  • This book was a fun and quick read. The perfect story for when you’re looking for something well-written but light! Jared and Silver were both great characters and their romance was sweet. I was impressed by how well Silver was able to handle being on the trail and how she never complained. It was fun to join them on their journey and there were surprises on the way that I didn’t see coming. I’m having trouble coming up with anything else to say, it was one of those books that was just good in a way that’s hard to put into words! I definitely recommend it though!

  • I really enjoyed getting to know the two main characters and thought there were both sincere and in-depth. The villain is truly dastardly and pure evil to be sure.

    My only critique with this book is that the final confrontation with the bad guy could have been so much more…. More!

  • This book takes off with a bang with the main character being jilted at the author and hiring Jared to help her find him. The action is fast paced and the old west town setting are ones I usually like. It was a clean fiction read where each character needs to learn to trust the Lord again. Jared’s second hand story would have actually been a nice beginning for this book. The ending was nice and exciting and I liked the outcome for most everyone.

  • Robin Lee Hatcher is one of my favorite Christian authors and she did not disappoint in her newest novel, The Heart’s Pursuit!

    I love Silver’s determination to make things right with her family and get their money back. I love that she is a strong, independent woman that doesn’t let her gender hold her back! And I love that Jared gives her a chance to prove herself and ride with him.

    As they continue their search, they are forced to work together, work through issues and come together. This book was a great read and I love the independent characters!

  • Robin does a good job creating believable characters and story lines.

    It didn’t take me very long to get into the story and want to keep reading.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit is the perfect example of what I love so much about her writing. It’s entertaining and sometimes heartbreaking but it’s perfection from the first page to the last. You can’t go wrong with this book and, if you’re not a fan already, you soon will be. I very highly recommend this book to lovers of historical romances or anyone that just loves a great story!

  • Robin Lee Hatcher’s writing talents are not confined to one genre and The Heart’s Pursuit is a delightful novel set in the Old West. The story contains all of the aspects you would expect in such a setting but it is much more than dusty trails, rough personalities, and burgeoning towns. Hatcher has created compelling characters with wounded hearts and upended lives who wrestle with issues that transcend time and location.

  • I am quite fond of Robin Lee Hatcher’s novels and “The Heart’s Pursuit” just reinforced that fact. The plot got off to a quick start and hit the trail quickly. The protagonists were excellently portrayed and by the end of the book I felt like I knew them and had journeyed alongside them.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit was a thoroughly enjoyable read! There are some pretty deep and troubling crimes that happen throughout the novel, but never once does the book get overly gruesome or dark in the descriptions of the events. I was able to read this book very quickly and enjoyed the short chapters. That made it easy for me to set the book down and attend to other things, then easily jump right back into the story. I also really liked the cover. It has beautiful colors and a really neat texture.

    I enjoyed these characters and the storyline was very interesting. I thought the author did a great job of describing what it was really like for Jared and Silver to be out on the trail together.

  • If you suspend reality for the time being and pretend this might really have happened, it’s an entertaining old west story. I couldn’t really believe that a girl like Silver, even with her somewhat wild ways, would take off with a man on such a quest, knowing that it would entirely ruin her reputation. Past that, though, it’s a fun chase after a mysterious killer who may or may not be tied to the man who left Silver at the altar and took off with her parents’ life savings.

  • I really enjoy Robin’s writing because her stories have meaning and more depth than others. This book, while I enjoyed the idea, the characters I didn’t like as much. The thought of a woman running off with a bounty hunter in search of a man is funny as well as obviously difficult at the time. Hatcher does a good job at portraying the difficulties of riding for weeks on a horse in every kind of weather. I thought there were too many story lines going on throughout the book. One story would get started and I would be getting into the little plot line and then all of the sudden it would be over and on to the next. Because of this the entire story seemed really rushed and the ending not as strong. That being said, this book is humorous with a dash of romance on the side.

  • THE HEART’S PURSUIT is a fast read… short chapters. At first I thought maybe Ms. Hatcher had sat down and watched a western on TV because that’s the way it started. But it didn’t end up that way. Add a run-away bride, a stolen fortune, a desperate bounty-hunter, and you have the story. This definitely isn’t my favorite book by Ms. Hatcher, but it is okay. I would recommend it for fans of westerns, historicals, or Ms. Hatcher.

  • This was truly a good shoot them up kind of cowboy story with some romance thrown in for good measure. I have always been a sucker for the cowboys and the shoot outs and this one has both!

    There is plenty of action all around when Silver and Jared team up to hunt down the same men for different reasons and along the way they pick up a third person who seeks revenge as well.

    It’s a really good story plot that will keep you glued to the book until the end. It’s an ending that you always expect from Robin Hatcher and she doesn’t disappoint us in this book either.

  • While the plot of the book sounds like a Hallmark western, Robin Lee Cook’s great prose helps the story avoid all the typical cliches that are found in many western romances. Yes, there is a lot of drama throughout the book, but with rich characters and an intriguing plot, I quickly devoured all 320 pages in one sitting. Overall, The Heart’s Pursuit is a well-written romantic western and one of Robin’s best novels.

  • Robin Lee Hatcher’s latest novel takes us back to 1873 and the emerging west. It’s a time when fortunes could be made and lost overnight by both hardworking pioneers and unscrupulous con men. Silvana ‘Silver’Matlock’s entanglement with one of these fraudsters means that her family could lose their business. Her stepmother also fears the loss of the family’s reputation. When she sends Silver to stay with relatives in Denver, the jilted bride takes matters into her own hands.

    At times, The Heart’s Pursuit reads as though it’s part of a series. There are backstories regarding both Silver’s sister and one of Jared’s previous bounties that could be turned into individual books. It is, however, a stand-alone novel. I’d say that The Heart’s Pursuit is a good way to pass a summer’s afternoon.

  • I really enjoyed the adventure as Silver and Jared pursued the two outlaws. The story never seemed to slow down too much, and I liked Silver and Jared as main characters.
    I thought the faith aspect of this book was done very well. The spiritual themes are clear, but they are woven throughout the story and in the characters’ lives in a way that made it realistic.
    The novel clearly makes the point that there is a distinct difference between seeking justice and seeking revenge, and that ultimately, forgiveness and redemption rest in God alone.

  • Moments says:

    I really enjoyed this book, as the storyline was fun and the story was filled with adventure, suspense and romance. I enjoyed getting to know the various sides of the characters and watching the relationship grow between Jared and Silver. This is a sweet story that historical romance fans will not want to miss out on.

  • Veronica's 'Views says:

    I was pleasantly surprised by some unexpected twists. I thought the romance was a bit thin as they didn’t talk much or know that much about each other, but they were able to see who the other person was pretty clearly from all they went through, so it didn’t feel like a complete stretch. Forgiveness and choosing not to hate were important themes in the story.

  • Jared’s past was an interesting part of the story. He became a bounty hunter specifically to find the man who murdered his family. Along the way he’s tracked down a lot of other people, but this man has always been the focus. Until he met Silver he didn’t even know the man’s name. Now with a better chance than ever, Jared plans to go after Carlton even if it means leaving Silver and her search for her fiance behind.

  • This was an excellent story about a bounty hunter and a jilted bride. The characters were really well done, even though a bit stubborn in their own way. Jared is a rough and hardened man who has no need for women in his life but somehow finds himself falling for the woman who hired him. Silver is the jilted bride who hires a bounty hunter to find her fiance who stole her father’s money. Great story that I thoroughly enjoyed!!

  • I figured out the plot pretty quickly of how this would all tie together, but regardless, it was still an enjoyable book. I enjoyed the historical western theme of the book and the main characters were very likable and I found myself cheering them on.

  • There has not been a book by Robin Lee Hatcher that I have not loved. Her style of writing is just simply amazing. While this book is a bit different in the era of what she writes, the storyline drew me right in and I just could not get enough.

  • I always enjoy Robin Lee Hatcher’s writing because she infuses her interesting storylines with character depth, attention to detail, and spiritual insights – and The Heart’s Pursuit is no different. Set in 1873, this story beautifully captures the flavor of the Old West as Jared and Silver travel across the countryside and small towns in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada. Robin has a gift when it comes to settings and her vivid descriptions conjured up images from TV westerns that I watched growing up.

  • …I love how Robin writes!…I especially love her new style in this book!!!…This is one of my favorites from Robin, if not my favorite, of everything I’ve read from her so far! 😉 With suspense and a great mystery within the hunt I highly recommend this read!!!…

  • I loved The Heart’s Pursuit from the first page when spunky Silver and tough and rugged Jared first met. I knew there were going to be sparks and that their relationship was going to be an interesting one. I also knew it wouldn’t be easy, and I was right…

    Overall The Heart’s Pursuit was an enjoyable Historical Romance with likable characters, an engaging plot, inspirational moments that felt natural, a little suspense and action, and a sweet romance.

  • This is an enjoyable, well-written western adventure that will leave the audience waiting for the next story that flows from the pen of Robin Lee Hatcher.

  • I really enjoyed this book as it had a good blend of romance,mystery and sass. I thought Ms. Hatcher did a good job at engaging one the story and I was very satisfied with the ending. although I was sad when the book ended! I liked how the book dealt with forgiveness and love in a very tasteful way.
    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • OK, who doesn’t like a rustic suspense filled romance ? or a murder mystery for that matter ! I loved this for the suspense and the romance ! Love born at a time of trails and hardship. After all isn’t it the trials that should cause us to bind together tighter as a couple. I guess I am a you and me against the world type of girl ! Robin has woven a fascinating story for us.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher was such a fun book to read. This book was fun because I have read so many books and this one was different because of how the story goes and what goes on.

  • This is the first book that I’ve read by Robin Lee Hatcher and it won’t be my last! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Filled with action, suspense, cowboys, gunfights, brawls and some romance, this book is a hit! I was not able to put it down. I was far from disappointed. 🙂

  • The Heart’s Pursuit is also full of memorable supporting characters. Though most don’t stick around long, Hatcher does a great job of fleshing out these minor characters. I’d especially love to read more about Miss Corrine, a woman who takes Silver under her wing in Nevada.

  • This is a book you can pick up and have a relaxed read and yet still get that touch of sweet romance, bad guy and good guy adventure, rough travel over the desert and country side in search of the bad guys. You get to see a person’s faith lived out in resisting temptation.

  • Author Robin Lee Hatcher has written many books that I have loved in the past and once again has captured this reader’s heart with The Heart’s Pursuit.

    An “edge of your seat” and “can’t put it down” type books with heroes that have secret agendas, jilted bride in pursuit of the rogue who took her small fortune and left her at the alter and danger, mystery and romance galore. Everything this reader loves in a good story – well written, fast paced and full of adventure.

    I love the characters, especially Silver! It is such a wonderful thing when I find a book that has everything I love yet a completely new and unique story with engaging and thrilling plot twists and characters. Highly recommended read by this book loving MomBlogger.

  • Robin hit the mark again with this book. I am a fan of historical fiction set in this time period so it was a fun and quick read for me. The characters were very well developed and Robin has a way of making you feel as if you were a part of the story. To me this book had a sense of adventure and kept me turning the pages. I really liked Silver and her tomboy type of attitude. It was also fun to go along on the journey with Jared and Silver as they learned about themselves and the real meaning of their journey together. I suggest this book to fans of western, christian fiction and a little romance.

  • A jilted bride, a bounty hunter, danger, mysteries, and surprises are just some of the ingredients that Ms. Hatcher has incorporated into this book. On top of everything there is a romance.

  • I enjoy reading historical fiction. The Heart’s Pursuit fits nicely into that category of enjoyment.

    While I found aspects of the plot predictable, I did find a few unexpected twists along the way, which were enough to keep my interested piqued.

    If you enjoy historical fiction, set in the Old West, I am sure you will enjoy this book.

  • I found the The Heart’s Pursuit, which is set in the old west in 1873, to be quite enjoyable. As the plot moved along the characters took on a life of their own, and the scenes were vivid in my mind. I didn’t want to put the book down because of all that was happening between its pages.

  • I liked the way that Hatcher lets us see into the minds of the characters by providing their thoughts along with the dialogue. I connected with the characters’ sense of doing right by their family. Robin Lee Hatcher never fails to surprise me with the way she changes things up with each novel!

  • The Heart’s Pursuit is another excellent book by Robin Lee Hatcher. I have been reading Hatcher’s books since 2008. Hatcher won’t let you down…You’ll keep turning the pages and wanting more of her books.

  • I always look forward to any book that is by Robin Lee Hatcher. She tells such wonderful stories and I know that I won’t be disappointed by them. I liked this side of her writing, though it wasn’t her typical style (and she admits that). She did a wonderful job capturing my attention and getting me excited about her book.

    I really like the cover of this book. It’s beautifully done and I think it easily shows what the book is about and the type of book. The font on the title of the book is perfect for the cover, too. Well done!

  • This book was different than most historical romance books I’ve read. Silver’s determination to find her former fiance and return her father’s money is one to be admired. Also wondering “what happens next?” towards the end of the novel, the ending was refreshing. An enjoyable ending to a surprising book.

  • Ms. Hatcher has woven a wonderful story of two people who are motivated by the need to put right the wrongs that have been done to them, and end up finding happiness. While they were overcoming many obstacles, we get to learn a lot about the characters of the two people. The author also does a great job keeping the setting true to the time and place and there was enough action to make me want to keep reading. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Hatcher, but I look forward to reading more.

  • Reputation is not the #1 priority for Silver as she rides out with Jared, a bounty hunter, to track down the low life bum who jilted her. No, she did not want to haul that snake back to the altar. She wanted to recover what he had stolen from their family. If she can’t find him, they would lose bother their home and family business.

    But all said and done, they both are focused on their goal of getting their man. Will they manage to get both men and recover the fortune that Silver’s dirty skunk of a fiance’ stole?

    Thank you, Ms Hatcher. I enjoyed this book every bit as much as I’ve enjoyed your other books I’ve read.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit will make you saddle sore and bone weary after traveling along with Silver and Jared – but nothing will keep you from finishing the journey to the very last page. Hatcher masters the difficulty of the open trail in this western saga of love and forgiveness. She makes clear just how very hard it was for anyone to be alone in the mountains, but especially the trail troubles for women – and how crucial a good horse was.
    I really enjoyed this story, and the characters – along with the fantastic natural setting – were the reason why. Silver and Jared were each hurting but recognized the good in the other. Throw in a spark of attraction and altruistic reasons for why they needed to keep their distance, and you have a scorcher of a story.

  • There is a lot of action, the romance is ‘clean’ and some of the happening are downright sad and awful, but as with all of Robin Lee Hatcher’s stories, there is a moral to the story, and something to be learned.

  • Robin Lee Hatcher has been writing historical fiction for several years, and by her own admission, The Heart’s Pursuit was a bit of a departure for her. That intrigued me and I am so glad I had the opportunity to review this book. From the get-go, my attention was caught and kept strongly with each page read. There is mystery, intrigue, twists and turns, and family dynamics to understand and of course romance, something for everyone and a book that will have you wanting to read more from Hatcher.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit is a fun and enjoyable read! I really liked Silver’s spunky and determined attitude and the way she wasn’t going to let anyone stand in her way. Robin Lee Hatcher does a fantastic job of so vividly describing the desert as well as the mountains and rocky cliffs along the way. I always enjoy set in the Colorado mountains, and the scenes in this book gave me the feeling of being there with the characters. There are a lot of twists and turns here, some intense emotions, but Sliver and Jared are determined to stay focused on what their mail goal is, and nothing would stop them! And in the end, what will become of these two? Ms. Hatcher weaves these situations together to give readers an ending that will warm your heart!

  • I always enjoy books by Robin Lee Hatcher and this one was no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the storyline. I thought one or two things were a little too unrealistic (like an honourable man agreeing to have a single woman accompany him unchaperoned on a trip of any length – during that day and age). There is one other thing I thought was unrealistic but it would involve a spoiler, so I’ll leave that one out.

  • I enjoyed this book. I felt like it started out a little slow for me, but the plot picked up toward the middle of the book, and the ending was good. The storyline was interesting, and I liked how the two main character’s separate goals end up intertwining as the book goes on. The characters were likable, though I would have liked to read more of the characters’ histories, to get to know them better…

    Note: I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for a review on my blog.

  • This review is for the book “The Heart’s Pursuit” by Robin Lee Hatcher. I am very familiar with Hatcher’s work and I really enjoy her writing style. This is a romance novel set in the 1800’s. Silver is a woman who has just been jilted at the altar, and her fiance has sped off with her family’s wealth. In desperation she hires a bounty hunter, Jared Newman, to find her fiance and the money. The trip they have to take is dangerous and full of obstacles.

    This story is well-written and full of suspense, faith, romance and adventure. If you enjoy historical novels you will certainly enjoy this one by Robin Lee Hatcher. I recommend it to you.

  • I’m glad she shared how much the heroine’s actions would have ruined her reputation and embarrassed her family. The things the heroine did would not be questioned at all in the 2000s but in the late 1800s they were very scandalous.

    Overall it’s pretty typical. I was just waiting for the heroine to get in a life threatening situation and sure enough – she did. I think she matures through the story, but her faith stays the same.

    Since they are traveling for most of the story the supporting characters change frequently, but fill in when they are needed. Love the Pinkerton agent! The descriptions of trail travel are good and give a clear picture of what they were going through.

  • The Heart’s Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher is a great novel. The storyline keep you in suspense. It is just crazy. I loved that the author kept the story moving. I am giving 5 stars! It deserves more, but for the sake of my review, 5 stars it is. The story kept me wanting to keep turning the page, I wanted to read more about Silver, and who Jared is. I am so glad the author showed that a man and woman can keep it platonic till their wedding night.

  • I really liked the storyline in this new novel by Robin Lee Hatcher. I have always loved her stories and look forward to new books. This is a novel of suspense, faith and trust. Two people lost and trying to find their way, is it meant to be that they will find that their lives actually are meant to be together? Or are they not able to trust each other? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by The Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are my own.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This is just the kind of western romance I like. It has action, comedy, romance and God.

  • Through the use of vivid imagery of what each of the people were seeing I was able to clearly visualize the terrain and the incidents they found themselves. Just like Silvana (I love that name) and Jared were motivated by something that gave feet to their actions, so do I. Theirs was revenge.
