Book Info and my review
About the book:

Author: Robin Lee Hatcher
Publisher: Zondervan
September 2014
ISBN: 978-0310257776
Genre: Historical

Diana is ready to begin a new chapter in her life-until the husband she believed dead reappears at her engagement party.

Diana Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba.

Receiving no word of him for seven years, Diana's infatuation with her dashing husband died an ugly death, and she is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.

But when her husband returns, supposedly a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for the senate. While Diana suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom. 

He agrees with one condition----she must give him a chance to change her mind about him.

My thoughts: 

BELOVED is the third book in Ms. Hatcher’s Where the Heart Lives series, but it easily stands alone. I had the privilege of reading the first book in the series, Belonging, but haven’t read Betrayal yet (it is on my wish list.)  However, while BELOVED is part of a series about siblings, they do stand alone.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading BELOVED, and recommend this book to all historical fans. Ms. Hatcher has really managed to bring this series to life, helping us to get to know both Diana and Tyson. I hated some of the choices Diana made, and really fell in love with Tyson. I hoped they would work things out. I loved the way some of the secondary characters played out in this story. If you like historical fiction, don’t miss BELOVED or any of the books in this series. Discussion questions and a snippet of another book are included at the end. $14.99. 304 pages. 4.5 stars.
