Prize of My Hear

"Massachusetts, 1815.
Will His Love Endure Once
He Learns Her Secret?"
Bookworm's Ranking - 3.5 Worms

Storyline - Brogan's wife took his son, Ben, away and hid him, promising that he will never find his son again. Three years later, Brogan has found his son. But Ben doesn't know him, has a new name, and has been integrated into the new family. But Brogan is determined to get him back and not to fall for the sweet mother-figure, Lorena, of Ben. As Brogan begins to spend time with them, that is proving harder to do and to keep the secret that he is Ben's father. Though, Loren has a secret too that she is keeping from Brogan, something that could devistate him.

Author - Lisa Norato

Publisher - Bathany House Publisher, an imprint of Baker Publishing Group

Age Group - 15 and up

Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Lorena looked to God when she needed help and looked after the ones she loved. Brogan is bitter towards God but comes to learn His love. Some hints to someone having been immoral but hasn't been and someone else is said to have had an affair. Asks the question of weather Piracy in time of war is wrong. A lie is kept for a while then told to Brogan but is still being kept from one person in the end.

Personal Opinion -
I enjoying this book. The author did a good job at moving the story along and making characters I could conect with. Enjoyed it all the way through, espessially the Bible references like one character was said that Moses could have used his sarcasm as a plague. Also, the characters' inner journeys were well done, even though it seemed one character had changes of heart a little too quickly on occaision. But, it is the ending that brought it down from me. I was really upset with it at first and had to re-read it to be happier with it. It has its upsides and downside. I can see how this ending was needed to really show this love and I can't go too in depth because I would have to give away the entire book but there was one thing that could have made it a lot better for me which would have been seeing Ben and Brogan interacting with each other after the secret came out, still would have liked this scene even when I'm feeling my best about the ending. Maybe I liked it more the second time because I missed something while crying buckets or my mind was just rebelling or something after the first reading. Still, I go back and forth on this, condsidering giving it 3.5 or 4 Worms depending on my mood. In the end, it was an interesting read and the author did a good job at creating a story and characters with a good message on love but I will probably not re-read this book any time soon.
