I also loved Hope as a side character, and Delany. They were so fun, and they'd be just the type of friends you'd want to have over for a game night on New Year's Eve, or even share the hard things of life with when you need an encouraging word.
The other thing I thought was incredibly well done was how Amanda carried through on theme. I heard her talk a little bit about it before I read the book, and I really liked the way she put it in her novel. Adele loves to be in control of her life, and the plot shows where her choices lead to, driving big story events forward one after another. When theme and plot in a book are inseparable, that's really good writing. The aftermath of Adele's choices held so true to someone trying to control their life instead of letting God control it. While I don't want to give away any of the story, I thought the progression to harder and harder consequences showed a lot of strength as an author. The story let Adele experience hard knocks and didn't protect her from the aftermath of those choices. It's so easyto give characters an easy out when they sin, but Amanda told the story with honesty and redemption. It convicts and comforts in the best of both ways.
I couldn't put it down. I even ignored Pride and Prejudice when the family was watching it on the television. I think you'll really enjoy it just as much as I did. I received a review copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are my own.
In her debut novel, Amanda Barratt delivers a well crafted story rich with deeply developed characters, beautifully depicted settings, and a good amount of plot twists. Set during the late 1800’s there is plenty of danger and romance to be found at Niagara Falls, along Canal Street, and within the homes of high society in Buffalo, New York.
Adele Linley and Drew Dawson…two young souls from different sides of society…struggle to better their situation in life, not for themselves, but for the ones they love. Franklin Conway’s thoughts and actions never travel far from satisfying his own selfish desires, or striving to garner a place in the upper echelons of society.
“Suffering is part of life, is it not? Sometimes a larger part than happiness, or so it seems.” The flow of the story easily moves the reader along Adele’s journey of suffering through a whirlpool of events toward an unexpected resolution to her situation…one neither Adele, nor the reader, ever saw coming.
“A man who possessed a million dollars only realized how grand that million was when he lost it. Drew’s health had been his million dollars.” No longer able to care for himself, let alone his sister, Drew fights to hold onto his faith and find a way to survive in a world bent on destroying any hope he has left.
No matter our lot in life, difficulties will come. But God is faithful, and we can find our hope in Him. My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls New York is a wonderful story of love and redemption, of hope and faithfulness set around the hypnotizing flow of beautiful Niagara Falls. I loved this book and look forward to more from Amanda.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
