Choices Of The Heart by Laurie Alice Eakes

The more I read books by Laurie Alice Eakes, the more I am draw into them! Choices Of The Heart is about an extraordinary young woman. Beautiful, talented, raised properly with parents who are well off, as well as being a trained mid-wife, those are just a few of Esther Cherrett's qualities. She is also hurt, shunned, and being chased away from all she held dear. In order to get away from it all she takes a position as a teacher in a tiny mountain area, and finds herself in the middle of a mountain of folks who have a tentative peace from fatal feuding. Doing her best to avoid the two cousins who would seek her hand for marriage, Esther starts to immerse herself into trying to hide her healing gifts, and into teach the children who need her.

But it is never so easy to get away from your problems, for they tend to follow you emotionally if not in other ways. Before long Esther is trying to sort out mysteries and get through her past problems and follow the choices that she needs to make for her life, and for others.

A really good read!

She thought she had left her old life behind . . .
Esther Cherrett comes from a proud line of midwives and was trained by her mother to take over the family calling. But when a terrible scandal threatens all she holds dear, Esther flees, taking a position as a teacher in the wild western mountains of Virginia. But instead of the refuge she was seeking, Esther finds herself in the midst of a deadly family feud—and courted by two men on opposite sides of the conflict. All she wants is to run away again.

But could it be that her past holds the key to reconciliation—and love?
In this gripping story of trust, deception, and bittersweet loss, you’ll discover the true meaning of choices of the heart.
