Review: An Awakened Heart by Jody Hedlund

An Awakened Heart

This free ebook novella was such a nice way to introduce the Orphan Train series. The plot and characters were very nicely developed and I easily connected with them. There are actually two storylines going on in this book and both are very good. An Awakened Heart follows the story of a man and woman who are working to reach out to the destitute in their city, but it also introduces the reader to a poor immigrant family who is struggling to survive. It is a very moving tale and really sets the stage for the next book in the series.

Available for free on Kindle and Nook.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

An Awakened HeartTrying to heal the ache she feels in her empty life, wealthy Christine Pendleton decides to volunteer at Centre Street Chapel. Ministering to one of the most deprived parts of New York City, the chapel aims at making a difference in the lives of the impoverished immigrants flooding the city. After seeing firsthand the hopelessness of the poor women and orphans, Christine is convinced more can be done to help them.

Guy Bedell has been serving at the chapel and pouring his heart out for the people he’s grown to care about. When Christine begins to challenge his methods and offers a new vision for reaching out to the community, can he trust that perhaps God has bigger plans in store for him–plans that may include this feisty socialite?
