Book Review: Hearts on Lonely Mountain by A.M. Heath

Anita M. Heath is a new author for me and I truly enjoyed her tale of Ivory, Ben, and Gerrit. These lovely characters have such an amazing story of survival and of what it means to “love your neighbor as yourself” amidst a town full of some pretty suspicious and prejudice people. What I admire most about this novel is that this is historical fiction with stories of librarians on horseback during the 1930’s. These brave ladies who loved books and education more than themselves, brought such understanding to those they served. As one who is a book worm and loves words, it was no problem to stay up and read this book until I got to the last page! I found myself wanting to ride along with the lady librarians as they delivered books to locals who lived in those tough times of the depression in the 1930’s. I wanted to cheer for Ivory as she struggled to make friends with the towns people; they were so superstitious of her. What challenges she faced in just coming to their town.
If you are looking for a story to refresh your soul and one that may make you laugh and even sniffle some then, this book might be for you!

This is a stand alone novel that is in a series of others books that include stories of librarians on horseback. I received an ARC from the author to help provide an honest opinion about her narrative. My thoughts, as typed here, are my own.

Hearts on Lonely Mountain

I love Sunday the Best!

Here is part of poem I have written a few months back and thought to share some of it today. Enjoy and my only prayer is that the words might take you where you find your simple rest on Sunday! 🙂

Sunday Best

I love Sundays the best
In you, Lord, there is such rest!
Here, I am glad and free
and I happy to be me!

In this place I wish I could stay
my pens are the words I can say!

My voice is more loud and clear
when ink and paper are near!

So God, let my life only bring
Glory to you, The King!
Let men their praises bring;
especially if they bear a ring!

So, Lord may I sing?
Only praise I would bring…..

**This is only part of the poem and have not the courage to share the rest! 🙂 Thanks for understanding!
Happy Sunday and find some rest in the Lord! 🙂
