Review and e-book giveaway of "Orphaned Hearts" by Shawna K. Williams

Get ready to fall in love! Ms. Williams characters will grip your heart and you’ll find yourself wanting to do anything you can to help.

David Langley is a minister who is especially drawn to orphaned children. He himself is an orphan, having lost his parents and a sister in a fire when he was 2 years old. David was left with horrible burns, now scars, from this fire. He hasn’t let anyone see them because he’s afraid of what people might say or think.

Sadie Miller has just recently lost her father. Her mother died years before. After the death of her mother, she devoted her time to taking care of her father. Sadie didn’t get out and didn’t have friends over. Her “social” circle was home and church. It’s pretty apparent that she has her eyes on Pastor Langley. She loves baking him cookies, pies, etc.

I really enjoy Shawna’s writing! She has the ability to take you right to the time periods, and the towns she writes about. Her characters are so real! I feel like I know them. Little Caleb is an orphan, with a physical disability, that was supposed to be adopted by a local family in Brady Hill. But shortly before he was due in town, the family changed their minds. The Sheldon’s found out they were expecting their own baby and didn’t feel they could take care of a little boy during Mrs. Sheldon’s pregnancy. I just wanted to reach into the book and pull Caleb out and take him home!

Sadie is asked if she can take care of Caleb until David can find a home for him. Of course she falls in love with little Caleb and wants him for her own. What will the orphanage have to say about a single lady taking charge of a child? Can Sadie and David overcome the barriers that keep them from opening up and loving? I’ve given “Orphaned Hearts” 5 stars! It deserves every one of them!
