Publisher's Description

One accidental kiss—that was all it took to throw Meredyth Summercourt’s world upside down. Determined to marry the ever-elusive Vance Everstone, she simply doesn’t have the time or desire to fall for her best friend Lawry Hampton. But with Vance out of the country, and with Lawry at her side nearly every day, teaching her what the world is like through the eyes of a little orphan girl named Wynn—Meredyth can’t deny that what’s holding her to Vance is nothing more than a desire to redeem herself from her past. Will she marry Vance once he returns from Europe? Or will she be strong enough to break free from the tangled web of deceit she’s convinced she deserves, and accept that God’s plan for her life includes redemption…and, quite possibly, Lawry Hampton?

Author Bio

A graduate of Taylor University with a degree in Christian Education, and a former bookseller at Barnes & Noble, Dawn Crandall didn’t begin writing until 2010 when her husband found out about her long-buried dream of writing a book. Without a doubt about someday becoming published, he let her quit her job in 2010 in order to focus on writing The Hesitant Heiress. It didn’t take her long to realize that writing books was what she was made to do. Dawn is represented by Joyce Hart of Hartline Literary. Apart from writing books, Dawn is also a first-time mom to a precious little boy (born March 2014) and also serves with her husband in a premarriage mentor program at their local church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Dawn is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, secretary for the Indiana ACFW Chapter (Hoosier Ink), and associate member of the Great Lakes ACFW Chapter. The Everstone Chronicles is Dawn’s first series with Whitaker House. All three books composing the series were semifinalists in ACFW’s prestigious Genesis Writing Contest, the third book going on to become a finalist in 2013.

    This review was written for #2: Bound Heart.
    Meredyth Summercourt has been waiting for six years for Vance Everstone to return home from Europe to marry her. Her eighteenth summer she was smitten with Vance, who was a few years older than she. They had known each other forever, but she decided she wanted more than friendship. She thinks Vance returns her feelings, but when he doesnt offer to marry her after an incident that could ruin Meredyth he leaves her wondering. She clings to the promises she made to him that she would wait for him until he returned. She has rejected every suitor since then. Her good friend Lawrence or Lawry Hampton has returned from Washington. He has been gone for two years and they fall back into friendship easily.

    Lawry has returned with one purposeto court Meredyth. She has no idea of his strong feelings for him, but he trusts God to set things right. What follows in the story are various situations where Lawry and Meredyth find themselves alone together, offering them ample opportunity to further their friendship and turning it into a romance. Lawry wonders if Meredyth still has feelings for Vance. She is holding herself at a distance from him, but he is not sure why. Lawry also has a secret of his own. He has funded and opened an orphanage in Washington and plans to return there to live permanently to oversee things. While back in Boston, he rescues a little girl, Wynn, from winter on the streets of Boston. Readers will fall in love with this adorable little girl; I know I sure did.

    There is so much more to this story than I can write here. It delves into feelings of unworthiness, shame, guilt, love, compassion and much more. Lawry is steadfast in his constant love for Meredyth and has been for years, waiting for her to realize it. Meredyth cant get past her guilt. She longs for the One who can take away her shame and guilt, freeing her. The characters in this story I could easily identify with and had an emotional stake in the outcome of the story. Im looking forward to book three in the series, The Captive Imposter. Ive found a new author whose books are definitely going on my keeper shelf! This is a sweeping romance that will get your heart involved for sure.

    This review was written for #2: Bound Heart.
    The Bound Heart is a beautiful historical fiction novel that takes place in 1891 New England, ranging from Bostons Back Bay to Maines beautiful Bar Harbor. With characters seeking forgiveness and redemption, a complex story-line, a beautiful romance blossoming, and rich in historical detail that keep readers captivated. I absolutely loved this one.

    Dawn Crandall paints a beautiful story that makes the reader feel as if they are actually there alongside the characters. I loved visiting all of the characters again and learning about Meredyth and Lawrys story. Its compelling and I couldnt put it down.

    The books in this series can easily be read as a stand-alone because each book features a different character and story. I, personally, think its more fun to read them in order because theres so much back story from the other characters that help explain what is going on and who the characters are. Plus, all of the characters make appearances throughout the books.

    Meredyth Summercourt is a strong female lead that I think many girls would relate to. She is raised in a wealthy and respected Boston family who knows that financial aid is not enough and finds herself serving the orphans. Everything looks perfect on the outside, but inside she was fighting that bounded by chains effect of sin. She finds herself willing to marry a man whom she does not love because she thinks its the only way she will truly be free and not fail God.

    Lawry Hampton is one of my favorite male leads that I have ever read in fiction. He is swoon-worthy. I mean he loves God with his whole heart and wants to serve His life by honoring and glorifying Him. He genuinely cares about others, especially little Wynn whom he jumped out of a moving carriage to rescue off the streets! Even though Meredyth breaks his heart repeatedly, he still loves her with unconditional and passionate love.

    And then theres cute little Wynn. I fell in love with her immediately. I loved the way that she bounded with Meredyth and Lawry.

    I highly recommend this one! Its truly remarkable!

    This was an interesting story. Meredyth has her mind set on marrying one man and Lawry makes her want to throw all of her good intentions right out the window. With the position that she had set herself in, I wondered how things between her and Lawry could ever turn out good. (Full review at my website)

    This review was written for #2: Bound Heart.
    THE BOUND HEART is book two in the Everstone Chronicles series, but it easily stands alone Fans will want to go back and read the first book, The Hesitant Heiress, if they are interested in knowing the story behind Nathan and Amaryllis. and their romance.

    I absolutely loved the premise of THE BOUND HEART--an accidental kiss--and I wondered how a kiss could be accidental. I won't tell you the details because, of course, everyone likely loves a kiss and I adore how the sexual tension between Meredyth and Lawry came to life. Oh, and Lawry? Ahhh, definitely swoon-worthy.

    The language of THE BOUND HEART was much more relaxed than in The Hesitant Heiress, and I enjoyed it. Also the scene breaks flowed ever so much smoother. I also enjoyed that this book is also first person (I mentioned in the review for The Hesitant Heiress that I enjoy first person point of view) and it is such a nice change of pace for a historical.

    Fans of Laurie Alice Eakes' Regencies will enjoy Ms. Crandall's books. These are set in Boston.

    I did get a little confused with the identity of some of the characters with A names - in fact I went back to look to see what Lawry's sister's name was because another character with a similar name was introduced as a very good friend (when you have time to kill at the pool while watching your daughter swim you notice stuff like that) and I did get a bit frustrated with her obsession over someone when Lawry was so swoon-worthy, but all in all I enjoyed THE BOUND HEART.

    The Bound Heart continues with characters from The Everstone Chronicles. I did not have much patience with Meredyth Summercourt, the female protaganist. I admired Lawry Hampton, the main male character. This book shows what life was like for the wealthy Bostonians. The main concept was forgiving ourselves and accepting God's forgiveness for our mistakes. I liked the book but not as well as book 1, The Hesitant Heiress. I do look forward to the next book in the series.

    I received my free e-book of The Bound Heart from the author, Dawn Crandall, in exchange for my honest opinion.
