I spent the afternoon browsing at Half Price Books in both the romance and the Christian fiction sections. I saw a lot of books I've read, and even more books that I haven't. It's always a good time, but what struck me today was how similar the settings were, particularly for historicals: Old West, Regency, some Downton Abbey type stuff. There were hundreds of them--HUNDREDS--because those tried-and-true settings are popular with readers.
So I come home and go back to my iPad and finish the last two hours of A Champion's Heart. What a joy to read a story that can only be described as fresh, original and relevant. And romantic too! I was transported into the South in the 1930s and experienced it through the eyes of Champ, a black man determined to make his way as a boxer, for both personal and deep societal reasons.
I also experienced life through Delie's eyes. Abandoned by Champ and the mother of the son he doesn't know he has, she goes to college and later adopts several orphans. Strong woman! But that's not surprising considering her strong sisters. And then there's Champ's annoying mom! I loved how the author peeled away her layers to reveal the wounded woman behind the demands.
History really does come alive in this story. So does the power of faith and family love. I closed the iPad with both a happy sigh for the romance and the awareness that I just read a story that mattered.
It’s not too often that you want to knock some sense into the heroine and you’re rooting for the hero, but that’s how I felt as I was reading the story. Usually it’s the other way around. There were several times I wanted to shake some sense into Delia, but as a woman, I understand her wanting to avoid heartbreak again. Champion was a 17 year old boy when he left town, but did grow up, gained sense and came back home to reclaim his love. This was an exciting read that was full of surprises. You will not be disappointed.
End result ... a book for a wide audience ... to include multiple generation (family) book clubs.
I've read all the books connected to Winslow and Atlanta. It was great catching up with the sisters. Looking forward to Emerald's HEA story. A special man indeed. Don't keep us waiting too long.
