To Win Her Heart

By

In 1887, after serving three horrific years in the stone quarries for killing a man in a boxing match, Levi Grant is trying to start a new life as a blacksmith in the small town of Spencer, Texas. Although Levi became a Christian and a pacifist while in prison, he fears that people will still see him as a dangerous murderer. Levi’s discouragement increases when he learns that his position depends upon the approval of Eden Spencer, a beautiful and compassionate woman who is so vigorously opposed to all violence that she will surely reject him when she learns the truth about his past.

Witemeyer is a talented author who plumbs the heart and soul of her characters while keeping a smile on the lips of the reader. Gentle humor pervades the story, never mocking, never crude, yet consistently illuminating the conundrums of life. Twists and turns yield surprising adventure; for example, Eden, the librarian, loses her reputation while Levi, the ex-convict, becomes a hero. To Win Her Heart is charming inspirational fiction that will certainly win the hearts of those who enjoy this genre.
