A Warrior’s Heart was a unique and intriguing tale. It was so interesting to see how this community lived, set apart and hidden for so long. I appreciated the way Brielle and Evan got to know each other as he was held prisoner. Their interactions made a lot of sense. Both of these characters were upstanding people. Brielle was extremely protective of her village and was also a caregiver to her family and friends, working to provide them with food and comfort when they were going through difficult situations.
We learn about Evan’s background and his mission throughout the story. The fact that keeping his mission secret from Brielle and the village weighed on his heart spoke volumes about the kind of man he was. Evan’s faith grew from this trial and he realized that he had to hand everything over to God in one part of the story and rely on prayer and trust in God alone and that he had not been doing that before.
Evan and Brielle made a wonderful romantic pair by the end of the book and I am hopeful that we will see more of them in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Brielle Durand is a key defender and hunter for her people’s peace-loving French settlement in the Canadian mountains. When a foreigner wanders too near to their secret homes, she has no choice but to disarm and capture him. She won’t allow another massacre like the one that killed her mother a dozen years before. But now, what to do with this man who looks at her in a strange way?
Evan MacManus was on assignment to find among the caves the mineral pitchblende that might help America win the War of 1812. Despite being taken prisoner, Evan is determined to complete his mission. But when that assignment becomes at odds with his growing appreciation of the villagers and Brielle, does he follow through on the promise he’s made to his government or take a risk on the path his heart tells him is right? Either choice will spell death for someone.
