100 Word Review: Hearts Awakening

My last two reads were a little heavy, so I was hoping for something easy and light this go around.  I won Hearts Awakening from a blog giveaway, so what's lighter than a free book?  This is my first Delia Parr book, but probably not my last.  Here's my 100 word review...

100 Word Review:  Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr

A spinster with exceedingly plain looks and nowhere to go.

A handsome widower with two young sons, a broken heart and spirit, and apple orchards needing his full attention.

An insulting proposition...only a business deal...nothing more...

A challenging cookstove...blistered hands and burned bread...

Gossip...Scandal...Secrets...Storms...

Yearning...Faith...Prayer...

Misunderstandings...Assumptions...Hurtful words...Unbridled anger...

Carved initials in a family apple tree...

"Poor Thing"...Griddle Cakes...Apple Fritters...

River Stones...a Sunday House...

A second chance with a lost love?

Inward beauty always shines through.

A quick read that is a somewhat predictable, but sweet story.
