I just finished reading For Sophia's Heart, A Novella. Thank you so much. It is so pure and good. I cried in two places, it was so endearing. (I know, you want to know where!) I would need to look back to it, but possibly it wouldn't be in the same place twice. Such a beautiful story and heritage. I just wanted to tell you thank you and I feel this would be a beautiful full length novel. Kathleen

You don't want to miss this wonderful story. From beginning to end it touches the frailty and fragileness of man. It is wartime and poverty dividing the haves from the have-nots. The story opens with two people on a train; strangers who help each other. I am a book-in-hand person, so to read this in eBook form was a stretch for me. I am so glad I did! It was riveting. I was right there alongside them as their story unveiled. It is beautiful. One thing that stuck out to me was our apprehension to be known when we are uncertain of the actions of another. The sad part is that by holding back, so does the other person, not wanting to offend or be offended. What do we set aside because of vain imaginations; what have we lost because we haven't been ourselves, true to our heart? I am not saying, carrying my heart on my sleeve, but rather true to who we are. Being a lighthouse for others to see by. So good. I loved this Novella and would love to see it rewritten to include a future and a hope in greater detail and longevity! Very excellent.

This is a Historical Fiction story based on the remembrance of an ancestor. This story fits in any generation ~*~ generosity ~*~ of ourselves.

"For Sophia's Heart" by Author Lyn Cote is a most enjoyable romance novella. The main characters, Gannon and Sophia, meet on a train bound for Chicago. Gannon steps in to protect Sophia from the unwanted advances of a fellow passenger and sits by her side for the duration of the trip.

Although Gannon is drawn to her because of this unfortunate incident and his desire to protect her, he takes the opportunity to learn more about this beautiful young woman with a slight accent...and a shy and endearing demeanor. He learns Sophia is on her way to marry a man she has yet to meet. Gannon is shocked to think of the prospect of her upcoming arranged marriage and refuses to leave her side until he has met the man she is soon to wed.

Sophia quickly discovers she is stranded in Chicago and once again Gannon comes to her rescue. Without giving away too much of the storyline, this young couple manages to stay in touch despite the obstacles confronting them. If you like well-written, captivating, romance short stories, this one takes place in the late 1800's and is a treat for the young at heart. It will certainly capture the attention of any romantic personality and bring much delight to the reader. I can honestly say...you will be sure to enjoy this wonderful little gem!

For Sophia's Heart by Lyn Cote
A Novella
This is a story of two people on a train to Chicago, each heading to a new start in life in 1898.

Sophia Schiffler is the daughter of a poor immigrant from Ljubljana. Going to Chicago to start a new life. To marry a man she'll be meeting for the first time. Not a love match but it will be one less person for her father to support with his farm job in Wisconsin. She meets a handsome young man on the train who refuses to let her meet her intended alone. When one incident leads to another....she ends up in a marriage of convenience for her own protection. Who could have known the doors that one act of kindness would open up for her, little Sophia?

Gannon Moore is going from a university student to being a soldier. He feels pulled to help the young immigrant woman and later sees that it must have been God that put them on that train together....at that time. The letters he receives from Sophia while in the army and memories he has of her from their two short days together help him through the worst of times. As she is a stranger in America he soon feels the same way in Cuba, being in a strange land with a language he don't understand.

This is just a short novella but so packed full. The author does such a great job of bringing the characters to life along with their emotions. I could imagine Gannon fighting off the mosquitoes in Florida and fighting the battle in Cuba. The reality of Sophia having to rely on someone else to read and write letters for her until she could learn the language enough to do it herself. And the struggles each of them faced hoping and praying the other was safe. I really enjoyed it.

This book was very Christianese. It was an ok story line, but not the best I've ever read. The characters were likable and the story line flowed well, but I didn't really care for the book overall that much.
