About Upon My Heart Forever
When Clara Moore learns of her brother’s unthinkable scheme—to take her to England and force her into a hasty marriage—she knows she must escape New York. But when she finds out who has accepted the job of taking her to Boston, she almost rethinks her own hurried plan. For the handsome man who comes to her aid is none other than her former love, Ethan Barrik. He left her heart in shambles six years before. Can she trust him a second time?
Ethan Barrik is no stranger to struggle. But tracking the enemy, and war-time spying are nothing compared to the pain of regret. Ready at last to leave his past behind, he accepts one final job for a friend, only to discover the person he’s really helping is the woman he still loves. Despite her ire, he knows he must make every attempt to make it right—and hope she will find a way to forgive him and give their love another chance.
This is my favorite kind of book! It’s well-written with great characters. And it’s something I can read in an afternoon. It’s perfect for a day at the beach or lounging by the pool.
The book opens with Clara. She’s in a hurry trying to pack whatever she might need. The reader finds out as the first chapter goes along that she’s trying to get out of the house before her brother returns. He’s planning to take her to England to marry and she wants none of that.
I loved Clara. She’s a great character who just wants to live her life in the way she sees fit. I felt kind of sad for her because she was in love with Ethan and she had no idea what had happened to him.
One of my favorite things about this book was the way Ethan was asked to escort Clara. And he had no idea that he was to escort her. And even better, neither did she. That whole scene was so fun! But I kind of wanted to smack both of these characters, because when they’re thrown together they don’t just decide to love each other the way they already do and move on. That would have saved them so much time.
There is plenty of great things going on in this one. I really loved the characters and the plot. I liked the way the book ended. This is a fun one to read!
