At the first report of cholera in Rochester, Amanda's mother had suggested the entire family take refuge at their summer estate on Broadmoor Island in the St. Lawrence River. However, that idea had been immediately vetoed by her father. Father had said his work would not permit him to leave Rochester, and for once, Amanda had agreed with one of his decisions. After devoting so much of her time and energy to medical training at Dr. Carstead's side, she couldn't possibly desert her work--not now, not when she was needed most.

I enjoyed the reference to the Thousand Islands (which I'm aware of) and could understand the setting and situation very well. I enjoy very much any book I have read by this author.

Beautiful setting in an area of the country that I have never before considered. The story has a surprise ending that is very satisfying. I would love to see these characters continue forward, at least the setting and the family, but this trilogy was settled in a way that is very complete.
CKendall3 Stars Out Of 5December 19, 2009CKendallI have read a couple of Tracie Petersons books and I have read one book by Judith Miller. I have tremendously enjoyed their books so I was looking forward to reading A Surrendered Heart. This book is the third book in The Broadmoor Legacy series. I have not read the first two books in the series, but I didnt feel like that hindered my reading experience in the least. Having enjoyed these authors individual books, I knew the writing was going to be terrific, and it was. I did not particularly enjoy the story, however.The story started out just fine, but as the book went on, it got darker and difficult to enjoy. Amandas arranged marriage to an abusive man consumed a large portion of the story and made it very difficult to relax and enjoy the story. I was actually relieved when I finished the book because I just could not take anymore. This book does have many good qualities. As I mentioned before, the writing was wonderful and I am still very interested in reading more from these talented ladies. Many of the characters in this story were likable. I really liked Amanda, especially her capacity to forgive. Fanny and Sophie were delightful and their loyalty to Amanda was inspiring. And, the way the story ends is very satisfying and helped to make the darker aspects of the story worthwhile. Overall, I have mixed feelings about A Surrendered Heart. The writing and characters are very good, but the story simply did not agree with me.
