Uncertain Heart by Andrea Boeshaar

This is book 2 in Andrea Boeshaar's Seasons of Redemption series.  I read book one and knew I didn't want to miss book 2.  Uncertain Heart in no way disappointed me.  It was a can't stop now must turn the page and see what's going to happen book.  I now can't wait til book 3 is out in Jan.  I have to see what else can happen in Unexpected Love.  Oh, to get into the minds of an author.  How they come up with their stories I'll never know, but I'm so glad they write it down for us readers to enjoy. 

Sarah McCabe is looking to gain independence from her parents and brothers.  She plans to teach in Chicago; however, she spends her summer as a governess to 4 children of Captain Sinclair's in Milwaukee.  Sarah finds that being independent has it's downside:  unprotected, vulnerable and alone.  She is a naive pastor's daughter from MO spreading her wings.  However, she's a feisty one.  Can she hold her own or must she return home defeated?  Guess you'll just have to get the book and find out. 

"It's just as easy to love a rich man as a poor man," the adage goes. But is the dream of fancy clothes, mansions, and fine dining worth compromising your morals and faith? Sarah McCabe must find her answer in Andrea Boeshaar's Uncertain Heart, book two in the Seasons of Redemption series.

The Civil War is over. Sarah longs to escape the country and experience the finer things in life, so she leaves her home in Jericho Junction, Missouri, to become a governess in Milwaukee. Her rich and dashing employer, Brian Sinclair, shows an attraction to Sarah but doesn't share her beliefs.

Richard, however, does. Richard Navis is Mr. Sinclair's steward. He is kind, thoughtful, handsome...and harbors an unfortunate desire to leave his city job to be a farmer. Sarah has no interest in a rural farm life, even while her interest in Richard grows.

Does she sacrifice love to get the lifestyle she wants? Or will love be enough?
