Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart
By Jennifer Moore
Covenant Communications, 2017. 207 pgs. Historical Fiction, Romance
Sarah Whitaker came to Australia at a young age to join her father on his sheep farm. Her excitement and dreams were shattered when she learned of her father's death shortly after her arrival. She beats the odds and becomes a successful business woman in a harsh land mostly populated by petty criminals from England. She has learned one important lesson over the years - don't trust anyone.
Daniel Burton made some really bad choices in life and was sentenced to death after a race-horse scandal. Fortunately his wealthy uncle was able to arrange his exile to Australia. Once in Australia he is given a pardon and ends up purchasing the land next to Sarah's. The two neighbors have a lot to learn from each other.
I really enjoy that Jennifer Moore's books are about the Regency era but they take place in different locations around the world. This book deals a lot with prejudice, trust and forgiveness. This is another clean romance that leaves you feeling good.
