Publishers Weekly

Midwife Esther Cherrett follows in the footsteps of generations of women delivering babies in coastal Virginia until scandal and tragedy threaten to ruin her mother’s practice and Esther’s reputation in this third novel, which continues the Midwives Series from Eakes (the Daughters of Bainbridge House series). To protect her parents, Esther abandons her calling as a midwife and leaves her coastal Virginia home to take a position as teacher to children in rural Appalachia. She is forced to reveal her healing skills, however, when she lands in the middle of a bloody, long-running family feud. Cousins Griff and Zach have vowed before God to end the killing, but when Griff is attacked mysteriously, an unmarried sister turns up pregnant, and both men find themselves falling in love with beautiful Esther, all hope of peace between the families might be threatened. Esther also must come to terms with the past that has followed her into the mountains and with feelings that God has abandoned her. She battles a growing attraction to one of the men in the face of past actions that she believes make her undesirable to any potential husband. Well-written descriptive passages help develop the mood, but the story offers little mystery, few details that set it in 1842, or much persuasive justification for Esther’s self-loathing.

    When a preacher's daughter who has been trained as a midwife and a healer runs from her seaside city to hide out in the rugged Virginia mountains, questions are sure to be raised. Esther Cherett has answered a call to educate children in hopes they will be able to avoid the poverty and feuding their families know too well. Instead of quiet fulfillment in such service, she encounters conflict—both physical and emotional. Is she making things worse or can she help by staying in the rural community.

    What Esther learns changes her perspective and her own life. But can they all find healing from the past? Choices of the Heart by Laurie Alice Eakes tackles tough topics and causes the reader to ponder choices and their outcomes. This third book in The Midwives series stands strong on its own.

    This whole series is a MUST READ! Each book will keep you locked in. They each one show the tenderness, chastening and forgiveness of God. How He has his hand on us and wills us to come to Him. Each of us has value to God regardless of our station in life. If we are willing He will use us. Like Esther we all have things to learn in life, none is perfect, but we can have a fulfilled life. She thought running was the answer but found God had other plans for her.

    Esther is a trained midwife who has worked at her mother's side. But then comething happens that sends her to the mountains and straight into the middle of a feud between two mountain clan families.

    I hate to say this, but to me it just didn't feel like this book lived up to the potential or use all the great material in the backround. While there was a good mystery, and a lovely setting, there were some things in the plot that just make sense to me. I won't go into a lot of detail because I don't want to give too much away, but there were details that just didn't seem to make sense to me, especially in the way that the main characters interacted.

    Overall this book just kinda let me down, and while it was a nice read and Esther was a great character, she never was able to truly let go of her misplaced guilt, and I felt like the Esther suffered so much more than she should have and that some people could have been less condemning of her. So i guess this just wasn't the book for me :/ I've read other books by Ms. Eakes in the past and this one just wasn't a favorite. There was plenty going on, with the feud and the many mysteries that get unravelled bit by bit. And Esther learned that no matter how far you go you can never run away from God. So while this wasn't exactly my kind of book, there were parts that I enjoyed and I look forward to reading more books from this author in the future.

    I received this book from the author in return for an honest review. Thanks!

    The intrigue of who would win the heart of this honest-to-goodness heroine, Esther, had me gripped from page one. I thoroughly enjoyed this third of the Midwife series. What I especially liked were the realistic blurs between what appears the bad guy or woman in the story, and that by going beneath the veneer of a person, you find a troubled heart.I think this is my favorite of the Midwife series because of that fact.

    In real life, the lines between hero and villian are not so clearly defined. Wounded hearts make it hard to make the best choices in life. Very apt title for that reason.

    I recommend Choices of the Heart as an intelligent, gripping human historcal drama, written with deft artistry.

    When circumstances force Esther Cherrett to leave her beloved home and family, her only choice is to answer a newspaper advertisment for a teaching position. She soon finds herself caught in the middle of a decades old feud as well as being caught between two cousins, Zach and Griff who are competing for her attention.

    I have to be honest, Zach really irritated me. Esther had made it clear early on that she didn't want a relationship with anyone, he kept pushing Esther to fall in love with him and because of that I skimmed a lot of places that had him in it.

    Griff on the other hand, although he knew he could develop feeling for Esther tried his best to keep his distance. He put a real effort into respecting Esther's wishes.

    Esther was to docile for my taste's but I really liked that fact that she didn't just sit and feel sorry for herself. She developed and put into action a plan for her life. That in itself takes courage.

    Choices of the Heart overall was a nice ending to the series. I think the best thing that I brought away from the book was the circumstances that surround Esther leaving her home. She is seen in a certain set of circumstances that someone misunderstood, and began to spread rumors about her forcing Esther into exile. It really bring home the fact that we shouldn't judge others and we don't always know the whole story about someone, even when we think we do. It was a great lesson.
