A Home for My Heart {Bethany House Book Review}


 In the book A Home for My Heart by Anne Mateer we meet Sadie Sillsby.  Sadie grew up in the Raystown Home for Orphan and Friendless Children and as an adult she has been blessed with an opportunity to work as the assistant to the matron at the home.  Her heart is with the children, but she looks forward to the day when she can marry her beau Blaine (a fellow whom she grew up with in the orphan home) and begin a family of her own.  When the current matron of the home surprisingly announces that she is to be married soon she convinces the committee to offer the job of new Matron to Sadie.  BUT.  There is a big problem.  The matron of the home cannot be married!  Blaine is hurt and confused when he discovers that Sadie intends to take the job "for a year or more" and that she hopes for him to wait for her!  Upsetting Blaine is just one of her worries when she discovers the orphan home is about to close due to insurmountable debts.  Sadie is afraid that she may have taken on more than she can handle and without the support of Blaine she is left to rely solely on her faith in God.  Will she be able to turn things around and find a place to call home?

This was a wonderful read that had me worried about Sadie, Blaine and the children to the very end.   A Home for My Heart will pull your heartstrings and have you scrounging for your flashlight to finish "just one more chapter" before going to sleep!  No really.  ;)
