"Jagears' first book in the Teaville Moral Society series has well-written characters, in addition to being an engaging and heartfelt read."--RT Book Reviews on A Heart Most Certain
Evelyn Wisely loves working at the local orphanage, but her heart can't ignore the women of Teaville who are also in need. Her boss is willing to help build a shelter for them, but only if she gains the cooperation and financial support of other local businessmen.
While David Kingsman plans to stay in Teaville just long enough to get his father's business back on solid ground, he's intrigued by Evelyn's cause and finds himself more invested with each passing day.
Will their plans and partnership fall apart when confronted with all that is stacked against them, or can they trust in God's plan despite it all?
"The second book in the Teaville Moral Society series is a wonderful and well-done sequel to the first. . . . Once again, the characters are well-developed and the romance is heartwarming and sweet. The storyline is compelling and has a wonderful, thought-provoking message about charity, community, and that redemption is open to everyone, regardless of circumstances. This series is not a light inspirational series, so those readers who want something with a deeper, gripping storyline, look no further."--RT Book Reviews

The storytelling in this book is fantastic! Every character is well developed, even the children. Of course, we get to visit with the ladies of the Teaville Moral Society. I loved the revelation of Evelyn's long-held secret, it was not what I expected. The conclusion is a nice surprise too.
I took advantage of Amazon's Match Book Price and got both a paperback and Kindle copy!
In 1908 the red light district in Teaville leaves a trail of broken women, children and men in its wake. Evelyn Wisely has a burden to not only care for the orphans generated by this district but also help the prostitutes escape this wretched and self-destructive lifestyle. David Kingsman, a businessman temporarily residing in Teaville, takes an interest in the children, the mission and most particularly in Miss Evelyn Wisely. But the townspeople are set against the project, and Evelyn has a secret that holds David’s attentions at bay.
Although, I don't quilt, as many in the Teaville Moral Society do, I totally understand the dilemma when Charlie sewed her dress to the quilt again!
“But sometimes God’s ways are not our ways, so we have to be prepared for Him to do something we might not like, but still trust Him to get us where He wants us.”
Evelyn Wisely, preacher’s daughter, humanitarian, and selfless shows compassion and doesn’t just talks her convictions, she acts on them. Feeding and caring for the children of prostitutes, taking in the ones who are orphaned, and trying to convince these ladies-of-the-night that she is willing to help them escape that life. Evelyn tries to get the Teaville Moral Society to do more, but most woman will only help on the sidelines. She petition business owners to help with the funding of a house for these fallen women, and meets roadblocks. Even when David Kingsman helps by allowing to women to come clean the glass factory after hours, the men who work there protest and many quit.
David Kingsman is a man who loves his Heavenly Father and has nothing but problems pleasing his earthly father. David was sent to Teaville to assess and then prepare to sell the A. K. Glass factory, but he is hoping to keep it and start turning a profit Being away from Kansas City, his father, and his father’s control, has allowed him some freedom. Sometimes in life, one has to cut the apron string to parents, and try and seek their own way in life. David has spent his entire life trying to seek approval from his father, only to be disappointed and berated. It is never good enough.
The plot will have David and Evelyn meeting and her spurning him at every turn. David is as determined as she is, so it is a battle of wills. Evelyn is harboring a painful secret that she has never shared for nine years and has carried this burden alone. Her parents know she has a burden, and they have tried to get her to talk about it, but she refuses. Every eligible bachelor that has tried to pursue her in courtship has been sent on his way. David is impressed with Evelyn from the beginning. He even goes out of his way to assist her and doesn’t look down on the children or women she is trying to help. The more they are around each other, the deeper they fall for each other. Evelyn’s past will prevent them from moving forward, and David’s father is another stumbling block. Will Evelyn pay for her young girls mistake for the rest of her life or will she be able to find freedom from her indiscretion?
The story is so full of emotions, heartache, sadness, angst, anger, bitterness, and even forgiveness. By the end of the story, I was crying with tears of joy and happiness. Confession, acceptance, forgiveness, and redemption are all part of this heartwarming story. I look forward to more in the Teaville Moral Society series.
I received a copy of this book from Net Galley for an honest review and did so voluntarily. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.
