Do They Have a Fighting Chance at Love?
After completing his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father's knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past.
Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs in the town her father founded. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she's reluctant to trust him. Yet as the mysteries of the town's new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart.
Eden believes she's finally found a man of honor and integrity. But when the truth about Levi's prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian's affections?
" Witemeyer's hard-hitting Christian historical romance skillfully incorporates Jesus' parables of the prodigal son and the adulteress' rock-toting accusers into her characters' struggles with redemption, worthiness, and new beginnings. A commendable addition to the genre."-- Booklist
"In 1887, after serving three horrific years in the stone quarries for killing a man in a boxing match, Levi Grant is trying to start a new life as a blacksmith in the small town of Spencer, Texas. Although Levi became a Christian and a pacifist while in prison, he fears that people will still see him as a dangerous murderer. Levi's discouragement increases when he learns that his position depends on the approval of Eden Spencer, a beautiful and compassionate woman who is so vigorously opposed to all violence that she will surely reject him when she learns the truth about his past.
"Witemeyer is a talented author who plumbs the heart and soul of her characters while keeping a smile on the lips of the reader. Gentle humor pervades the story, never mocking, never crude, yet consistently illuminating the conundrums of life... To Win Her Heart is charming inspirational fiction that will certainly win the hearts of those who enjoy this genre."-- Historical Novels Review
"Seamless writing with an unexpectedly complex plot... This novel has everything that I love about Christian historical fiction."--Christian Manifesto
