Travel back in time with Sarah M. Eden’s latest novel, Healing Hearts. This delightful story takes place in the quaint town of Savage Wells, known more broadly as nineteenth-century Wyoming Territory. Chapters in Healing Hearts are narrated by one of two main characters: the charming and thoughtful Dr. Gideon MacNamara or the tenderhearted and talented Miriam Bricks. Miriam is instantly likeable and meets her match in Gideon. Eden continues to shine with her character development, and the young couple is multi-dimensional, realistic, and easy to root for. Healing Hearts is entertaining, with bits of mystery, humor, and excellent pacing. Perhaps most importantly, the novel’s powerful storyline deals with physical and mental health and is not typically found in a romance. Eden tackles the complex subject with honesty, grace and bravery. This book will be adored by fans of romance and historical fiction.
