Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr

Hearts Awakening
A Novel
by Delia Parr

This is a wonderfully written story about two people that need to find true love.

Jackson Smith is a young widower in his late twenties. His wife died amidst a scandal and left him with their two small sons.
Elvira (Ellie) Kilmer, is a spinster and does not have a place to call home. Her parents have died and relatives have not made her feel very welcome in their home.
She is asked to be a nanny for Jackson's small sons, Daniel and Ethan, for a couple weeks. However, Jackson knows he needs someone more permanent to watch Daniel and Ethan. He proposes marriage to Ellie, not for love, just as a business transaction. They marry with a contract and move back to the island where Jackson lives with his sons.
The question is: will Jackson and Ellie soften their hearts toward each other and let go of the scandals and hardships in their past?

This book was very easy to read, but not so easy that it was boring. I actually enjoyed this book very much.
There were enough twists and turns to keep my attention and make the story interesting.
This is a very heartwarming story about two people that need to learn to let go of their pasts and to not listen what people may say about them.


  1. I love running into good book blogs. I'd like to follow this. Perhaps when I get published you could review mine. Do you review books before they get published?
