    The Captive Heart***** by Michelle Griep

    Eleanor Morgan flees London for the Colonies to escape the wrath of an angry duke where she is to work for a Charles Town family. Only to find herself married to a man she has never met and taken far into a vast wilderness. A wilderness in which she knows nothing of, with challenges and dangers she never even dreamed of--evil men included. Nothing in her former life as a proper English governess prepared her for what she is now facing. Armed with her faith and love of children Eleanor faces each challenge with courage, determination and strength. Some of those challenges were dangerous--even life threatening--but she put into practice the lessons Samuel taught her despite her fears...not sure I could have, I would have fainted right on the spot in the same situation! I love the Cherokee name Samuel gives Eleanor, Tatsu'hwa: Red Bird, because of her red hair, which later becomes an endearment.

    Backwoodsman and trapper Samuel Heath needs a wife to help raise his young daughter, but ponders who would marry a man like him--whom some say is a murderer? Samuel is not the man he once was, he is a changed man as only God can change one. Now he lives his life to please God, not always easy, especially when he hasn't forgiven himself of his past. He is a man of integrity even as he comes across as a harsh man. This puzzles Eleanor at times as the days turn into weeks and they learn to live together. But can time heal the wounds they both have suffered and can they forgive others and themselves and learn to love and trust that God has a plan even in this? Will the evil that lurks, spreading its hate and destruction destroy any happiness they may have? Or will faith, love and hope cast out all fears?

    In The Captive Heart, Michelle Griep takes the reader to a young, beautiful and often perilous South Carolina of the 1770's. Vivid descriptions of Eleanor's travels from London aboard ship to the Colonies, the vast wilderness of Carolina and the Indian villages, weaving a gripping story with captivating characters that bring history to life.

    Michelle Grieps work is one of the best out there, in my opinion. With The Captive Heart the author has reached my list of favorite-books-of-all-time.

    From page one, I was spellbound. Griep has an uncanny way to draw you into her stories and care for the characters like youre one of them. Eleanor and Samuel were certainly among my all-time-favorites.

    The beautiful wilderness of South Carolina, a widowed man with a young daughter, and a young English woman who needs a new start are beginning a new life together in a small cabin in the woods, quite a distance from civilization. Having never lived in the wilderness, Eleanor is challenged on many levels; whether it is a bear or an Indianshe has never seen any of them and has to face many fears. Samuel brings a shameful past into the story and it is Eleanors task to unravel the mystery of the man and meanwhile protecting her heart from falling for him.

    This truly was a Wow- story that will live on in my heart for a long time.

    There are a few times that I change-up my review schedule to accommodate a book. The Captive Heart is one such book. I kept hearing my friends praising Michelle Griep, and figured, I had better give it a try. WOW, I am so very glad I did. A compelling story of love and forgiveness. You will find a lot of adventure, mishaps, romance, and passion within these pages.

    I found this story not only tender and passionate between our hero and heroine, but also filled with the love and forgiveness of our Lord. His fierce love for us and His undying forgiveness is portrayed through this story. No matter what we go through, the trials that we see, the heartache we endure, the choices we make, He will never leave our side. Yet we must make the choice to walk in the light. To walk in His forgiveness and forgive ourselves.

    The minute you open The Captive Heart, you will find yourself transported back to Revolutionary America, and the tensions are high. With non stop adventures, you will find yourself unable to set this book down to you know, eat, cook, clean...With an excellent storyline and gracefully composed with an elegant hand, Michelle Griep has indeed captured my heart with this book.

    I received a complimentary copy of The Captive Heart through NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.

    The Captive Heart is the first book I have read by Michelle Greip. I was pleasantly surprised. From the very first page I was drawn in. The characters were all very original, as was the storyline. I could never guess what was going to happen next, and loved every minute of it. When I was not reading the book, my mind kept wondering back to it, and what was going on. I will definitely be looking for more books by this author. The story takes place in 1770, and follows Eleanor as her life takes many unexpected twists and turns.

    Eleanor hasn't had the easiest life, and it doesn't appear that her luck is going to change anytime soon. Getting married to a stranger was never part of the plan, but what choice does she have? Samuel seems to have plenty secrets of his own and is happy to have a marriage in name only. But when she keeps finding herself in danger Samuel is right there to rescue her. And what woman can resist a hero? Will Eleanor want more than Samuel can give? Or will the situation be reversed?

    Let me just say that I fell in love with Samuel. He was such a different hero and I found him irresistible. It reminded me of how the more you get to know a person the better looking they can become. There was the perfect mixture of suspense and romance and I liked every minute of it. I really enjoyed this book and know you will too. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, all opinions expressed are my own.

    I have to say, I am loving everything I read my Michelle. She truly is a talented author.

    From the very first chapter of this book I was drawn into Eleanors story and the journey she found herself on.

    Then was rough and tumble Samuel. Who on the inside is really trying to seek after Gods heart and will. I love his honesty in questioning what God is up to when Eleanor comes into his life. How often do we do that same thing?

    From their first meeting I could sense the tension would be great between these two characters and as they tried to fight growing feelings my heart ached for them.

    I cant forget sweet Grace, Samuels little girl who will pull at your heartstrings.

    So many yummy layers to this book. If you enjoy a good historical romance this is a great one!

    A copy of this book was given to my through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
