“Hearts Awakening” is set during the 1840s on the Dillon’s Island that is located in the Susquehanna River. Elvira Kilmer has always wanted a husband and family of her own, but feels that she is getting to old and that her dream will never come true. She moves to Dillon’s Island in hope of a new life. She takes a job as a housekeeper at the Smith residents.

Jackson Smith is a handsome widower with children. Both Jackson and Elvira start to have feelings for another, but their relationship maybe in jeopardy when she learns of Jackson’s first marriage scandal.

This is a simple story about the plain looking Elvira falling in love with her boss. Elvira’s character is likeable, and you do at times feel everything she is feeling. Jackson is an interesting character, with a somewhat harming past. Even with the simple plot, I ended up liking this cute romantic tale. If you like romance books, check this book out.

I would like to thank Bethany House for sending me this copy to review.
