In a country healing from war, can a young woman find healing for her heart?

Courageous and unconventional, Rosemary Saxon served as a nurse during the Civil War, a service that has caused most women in town to regard her as unfeminine and even downright vulgar. Although she would like to put that part of her life behind her, she needs to support herself.

Rosemary takes a nursing position with Dr. Elijah Stewart, but whenever they are together they always seem to do or say the wrong things. When someone threatens Rosemary, will she find the courage to stand, or will she leave town--and Elijah--forever?

WHEN THE HEART HEALS is the second book in Ms. Shorey’s Sisters at Heart series. Readers will want to read the first book Where Wildflowers Bloom first just to find out the beginning of the story, but you can read this one if you haven’t read the other.
Ms. Shorey’s style is rich in detail, and there is a touch of suspense in this one, making it intriguing as well as a romance. One couldn’t help but wonder what “Witches’ brew” Rosemary is cooking up, and why… as well as care about what happens between her and Elijah.

Fans of historical fiction will want to read WHEN THE HEART HEALS. Don’t miss this intriguing romance. $14.99. 352 pages.
