From the Back Cover
She could cross an ocean, but could she ever win his heart?
Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Left at the altar and disgraced in her small hamlet, she is being pressured to marry the eligible son of the London milliner. Puritan Barnabas Horton still grieves the loss of his beloved wife, but he knows his two young sons need a mother.
With tender hearts, Mary and Barnabas take a leap of faith and wed. But when Barnabas's secret plans to move his family to the New World to escape persecution come to light, Mary's world is upended. How could she possibly leave her papa and her dear sister?
And will she ever reach the secret places of her husband's broken heart?
"This debut novel will pull you into love and loss, then sweep you across the English sea to the rolling landscapes of Long Island. Be prepared to have your heartstrings plucked to the music of God's song of love in sickness and in health, and in times of richness and want. A Place in His Heart is a satisfying and compelling historical romance sure to win fans early for the entire series."--Jane Kirkpatrick, bestselling author of One Glorious Ambition
"A tenderly told story enriched by the author's own heritage, A Place in His Heart is sure to win readers' hearts too. Rebecca DeMarino weaves a lovely spiritual message as old and new worlds collide and love thrives amid the challenges of early America."--Laura Frantz, Christy Award finalist and author of Love's Reckoning

I can't imagine going through what this folks went through to leave family, friends and journey to the new world from England.
It was heartbreaking at times for all but they struggled and survived.
I have never read any of the author's books but look forward to reading them in the future. Many hours of research must have gone into this novel and I loved the history of everything in this novel.
There were times while reading this I had tears in my eyes and then I could understand both sides of the couple involved and what they endured.
The author traced the history all the way back to this family of Barnaba Horton and his grave stone is in Long Island and he was the first magistrate of Long Island and the great inspiration for this story.
Also, the wife of Barnabas is Mary Langston Horton and she is the ninth great grandmother of the author. This is truly amazing that she is related to this prominent family in history.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my thoughts.
Barnabas loses his wife and is stuck raising his two sons, knowing they need a mother. Mary's father is trying to arrange her marriage to a guy she does not like, so when she becomes attracted to Barney, she just knew that was her answer to keep from having to marry someone else.
They marry for convenience, though Mary is already in love with him. But he can't forget his first wife Anne, and has problems loving Mary because of that.
Barney failed to tell Mary he had plans to move to the New World and start a church, since it was hard to worship freely in England. Mary doesn't want to go, but follows her husband as any good wife should do.
While Barney is good to Mary, the love is missing. He wants a child and she's having problems conceiving.and feels guilty about that.
Miscommunication and guilt causes problems, but once the air is finally clear they can move on.
The book is based on Christian faith, struggles and again as I stated earlier, just a well written novel.
