A Story that Grips the Heart,
This review is from: Ireland Rose (Kindle Edition)
This historical romance brings history to life beautifully through the author's main character Rose. The story relives the 1886 Charleston earthquake which is almost symbolic of Rose's life. Her small world is shaken and torn on more than one occasion. First by becoming a widow. Secondly, by being scorned by society for making a decision of the heart. Then again when her heart is broken. But she seeks strength and wisdom. She continues to hope for happiness despite her many trials. "Ireland Rose" reveals how God always knows the outcome. Even when we doubt and struggle and hurt, God has a plan.
Kudos to Author Patricia Strefling for doing an excellent job weaving both the history of Ireland and Charleston into this beautiful storyline.
