Review: Starving Hearts by Janine Mendenhall PLUS Prize Pack Giveaway

starving-heartsStarving Hearts was set in a very interesting time period. There were portions of the book that had me on the edge of my seat and very concerned for the characters. While at other times, my interest waned and I struggled to stay connected. I enjoyed much of the book, however, I felt an amazing amount of frustration toward the villain and Annette’s mother that sometimes led to me having to set the book down and step away from those situations for awhile. There were many interesting characters and the author created quite the complex and intricate web connecting many of them in ways that I didn’t see coming.

(3.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Starving Hearts (Heritage Beacon Fiction, May 2016)

Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage.

She yearns to find her anonymous rescuer. Unfortunately, her health and intellect prevent it. Both repel suitors and cause Annette to doubt God’s existence, at least until He answers her prayers in an unusual way. . . .

Mr. Peter Adsley is joining the clergy, and he desires a godly wife by his side. After a failed attempt to obtain one, he engages in a clandestine meeting with the bewitching young woman who keeps crossing his path. But she is so unsettling.

Destined for disappointments, Peter and Annette both endure disgraceful situations. Will Peter’s faith sustain him through overwhelming setbacks? Can Annette overcome her doubts? Or will their starving hearts yield to the machinations of a mad man?
