Healing Hearts (Savage Wells #2) by Sarah M. Eden. Blog Tour

Book Summary:

Wyoming Territory, 1876

As the only doctor in the frontier town of Savage Wells, Gideon MacNamara knows his prospects for a bride are limited. The womenfolk in town are either too young, too old, or already spoken for. So, being a practical man, he decides to take advantage of the matchmaking service of the day—mail-order brides—and sends away for a woman with nursing experience.

When Miriam steps off the stagecoach in Savage Wells, she sees a bright future in front of her. But when the town—and Gideon—meets her, ready for a wedding, her excitement quickly turns to horror. Somehow Dr. MacNamara's message had gotten turned around. He didn’t want a nurse, he wanted a wife. When she refuses to marry him, she finds herself stranded in Savage Wells with some very unhappy townspeople.

But Gideon is not like the other men Miriam has met. Embarrassed by the misunderstanding, he offers her a job, and the two begin an awkward—and often humorous—dance of getting to know each other as they work to care for the people of their town. Romance blossoms between the two, but when a former medical associate of Miriam’s arrives in town, Gideon and the other townsfolk must rally around Miriam to protect her from a dangerous fate. Gideon and Miriam must decide if they are willing to risk their hearts for each other even as buried secrets are brought to light.

My Review:

Eden has a way of drawing the reader into a new world and holding them captive until there is literally nothing left to read. I loved this book so much! Immediately I was drawn to Gideon and Miriam, they started off with a huge misunderstanding but both were willing to still work together. I was intrigued to figure out Miriam's secrets she was hiding. And how would everyone else treat her once they figured it out as well? I loved how authentic and real this book felt. I honestly find myself still thinking about this story because it really struck a chord with me. I cannot imagine all that Miriam went through and what life was like back then. The entire asylum aspect is something not usually addressed in historical novels and I found it was done tastefully and in a manner that led me as the reader to feel sympathy and horror at the same time for what people must have endured back then. One does not want to imagine and I applaud Eden for tackling a difficult subject. This book was everything you guys! It kept me up until 1am to finish reading it because I couldn't put it down. I tried ,but I had to know how it ended! I love Savage Wells and how they are not just a community but more like a family. This book is amazing!

Happy Reading!!!
