My Heart Remembers and book giveaway

Hey, guys. Here's a review of Kim Vogel's Sawyer's newest book, My Heart Remembers, a really awesome story.

Maelle Gallagher and her little brother, Mattie and baby sister, Molly have just been orphaned in a tenement fire. As recent immigrants from Ireland, they’re put on an “orphan train” and sent west to Missouri to find new parents and a new home. As the oldest, Maelle had been charged by her father to “look after the wee ones.” Maelle does her best, but her little siblings are literally torn from her arms by the separate families who adopt them. But Maelle will never forget them and will never stop searching for the only family she has ever known.

This is another heart-tugging story from best-selling author, Kim Vogel Sawyer. It bounces from Maelle to Mattie to Molly and tells their plights. Each story has its own conflict as they all three come together at the end. It’s great entertainment, very touching, and fans of Mrs. Sawyer will devour it. I’m only hoping there’s a sequel, because I really loved the character, Matt, and I want to read a romance with him as the hero!

Even though this isn’t necessarily a romance, there is some happily-ever-after kind of stuff. I highly recommend it.

Please leave a comment tonight and any day this week for a chance to win a copy of Laurie Alice Eakes's new book, Better Than Gold. On Friday I'll post an interview with Laurie Alice and then on Monday, I'll announce the winner.
