Grace Mallory is tired of running, of hiding. But when an old friend sends an after-hours telegraph transmission warning Grace that the man who has hunted her for nearly a year has discovered her location, she fears she has no choice. She can't let the villain she believes responsible for her father's death release his wrath in Harper's Station, the town that has sheltered her and blessed her with the dearest friends she's ever known.
Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His telegraph companion, the mysterious Miss G, listens eagerly to his ramblings every night and delights him with tales all her own. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intended for him. Yet when he takes the next step to meet her in person, he discovers her life is in peril, and Amos must decide if he can shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
homesteadingHampton Roads -- VAAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A moving work of fictionSeptember 15, 2017homesteadingHampton Roads -- VAAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dependable can sometimes seem like a dull word but in this case it means anything but. Witemeyer is a dependable author. By this I mean her stories always can be depended upon to model utmost moral character while at the same time exhibiting the most charming romance. I find this a refreshing attribute. I never have to worry that the latest narrative might contain anything of an objectionable nature. Therefore, I highly recommend any of her books but especially Heart on the Line.
Amos Bledsoe didn't strike me as a swoon worthy hero in the beginning. He is not your quintessential tall, dark, and handsome man. But what Amos 'lacks' in physical hero qualities, he more than makes up for in his character. By the end, I absolutely adored him! He is witty, brave, staunchly in love with Grace, and willing to put his heart on the line. What more could a lady ask for?
Grace Mallory is hiding out in a small women's colony after witnessing a tragic event. I liked her character but didn't really connect to her in any way. The lady who did capture my attention was Helen. With a prickly pear demeanor and an air of mystery surrounding her, I found her fascinating. Helen's love story is secondary to Grace's, but stole the show, in my opinion.
"She glanced at the sky, where a handful of puffy white clouds swam lazily across the bright blue expanse. So peaceful. Perhaps even happy. Helen didn't really know what happiness felt like. To her, it was simply the absence of pain. Yet when she looked at a sky like this one, something inside her whispered that there could be more. There could be joy that led to dancing, to laughter, to a place where fear could not penetrate." (Witemeyer, pg. 100)
There is a prequel novella, Worth the Wait, and the first novel, No Other Will Do. Although Heart on the Line is the second full length book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Fans of historical fiction with strong Christian values, mystery, and romance will enjoy this book.
I received a print copy from Bethany House for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. No compensation has been received.
ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I loved this sweet story!August 30, 2017ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved, loved, loved being back in Harpers Station with some of my favorite women! Karen Witemeyer writes another refreshing book with unexpected heroes and heroines, plot twists you wont see coming, and a sweet romance that captures you from beginning to end.
This book is refreshing because the hero and heroine are not your typical male/female leads. Amos Bledsoe is not your typical male lead. Sure, hes confident, intelligent, sweet, funny, and kind but hes not in the least broad shouldered, big muscled, or macho man. I loved him more for the fact that he didnt bemoan this fact; he accepted what God gave him and that, to me, makes him very attractive. Grace Mallory obviously agrees with me! Her character is strong in a reserved kind of way. She is loyal, funny, caring, and witty. I loved getting to know them through their instant messages on the Western Union telegraph line!
I also loved the fact that they both accepted their limitations, and relied on God and others to do what they knew they couldnt do on their own. Neither one of them tried to do more than what they were capable of doing. They prayed, they planned, and they involved people who could help them. During that time, they had an old fashioned courtship. Amos rushing to Harpers Station because he knew Grace was in trouble is all sorts of sweet. He didnt even know what kind of trouble there would be! And lets not forget about Helenbroken, angry, and bitter Helen (dont worry, I wont give anything away!).
If you couldnt tell, I really, really, really LOVED this story. My heart was on the line from beginning to end. I couldnt wait to see what happened between Grace and Amos, I enjoyed catching up with Emma, Malachi, Victoria, Ben, and the rest of Harpers Station, and I was not disappointed at the plot: fast moving, romantic, and faith filled. Its a great book! I promise youll enjoy it.
