HerneBack in October I read a review of this wonderful book over at Franciscan Mom. And then, lucky me, I won my own copy of Refuge of the Heart by Ruth Logan Herne.  I decided to save it for my “recovery reading” since I knew I would need many good books!

I was not disappointed.  Except when I finished the book.  It is a beautiful story of sacrificial love and its’ power to change lives. I wanted to talk to someone about the book, so I’m encouraging my daughter to read it.

What I liked so much about Refuge of the Heart is that Lena’s faith is shown as the overriding way she overcame her trials and it is why she has  strength and joy.  Often novels which portray women of faith are a bit sappy or Pollyannaish; not so here.  Her attitude is one that would serve a person well in life.

If you still need some Christmas gifts for a reader, this would be a great one to give!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Lena’s faith was definitely an inspiration. It was her rock. There was nothing fake or saccharine about it.
    We could do with a lot more fiction of this caliber, for sure! This reader would be very happy about that!
