A Home for Her Heart by Janet Lee Barton

My review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, A Home for Her Heart. This is the third book in the Boardinghouse Betrothals Series. I have enjoyed this book and the others in this series. The series is about the appalling conditions of the New York Tenements during the late 1800's. The book is well written even though it's about heartbreaking conditions. I enjoyed the characters as they try to find a way to improve conditions for the poor people that are stuck in this poverty.

Elizabeth Anderson is a magazine writer for the woman's monthly the "Delineator." She doesn't need to work but feels because of her wealth she should give back. As a writer she likes to think she is making a  difference.  She lives at the Heaton House Boardinghouse but only the landlady knows of her wealth. One of her fellow boarders has made the comment that her writing is mere fluff. Elizabeth is offended by his arrogance.

John Talbot is a reporter for the New York Tribune. He moved to town when a wealthy woman was instrumental in getting him fired. Elizabeth is a beautiful woman that he finds himself attracted to. They have been sparring with each other for years. So when one of the other boarders asks them to investigate a couple of tenement buildings and do a story on it he is all for it.

During their time together their relationship seems to take on a whole new life of it's own as these two are drawn into their investigation but can that relationship survive the secrets they both carry? Will the big story they reveal take prescience over their love for each other? God has a plan for these two can they learn to trust Him? We often are in the same boat. Can we Trust in the Lord? God has a plan for each of us and it is so much greater than anything you hope for but you must trust Him and give Him control. It will be worth it I assure you.
