About A Worthy Heart (Courage To Dream, #2)

Will Maggie Listen to the Warnings of Those She Trusts Most or the Leadings of Her Heart?

THE ANSWER TO MAGGIE MONTGOMERY’S dream of seeing America has arrived at just the right time. Not only will she be reunited with her beloved brother Rylan, but she’ll finally be able to escape Neill Fitzgerald and his increasingly unwanted attentions. She’s intent on never returning to Ireland, hoping to build her future in the land of opportunity and perhaps find the love of her life.

While visiting Irish Meadows, she meets an intriguing man she thinks is a stable hand. Only when her brother demands she stay away from Adam O’Leary does she learn he’s Rylan’s brother-in-law, recently released from prison. Nonetheless, Maggie can’t seem to make her stubborn heart conform to her brother’s request.

Adam O’Leary has never felt worthy of his place in the family. Now a free man, Adam’s only desire is to earn back his family’s trust. Falling in love with the newly arrived Maggie, however, was never in his plans. Despite everyone’s efforts to keep them apart, the two develop a bond it seems nothing can break—but they soon discover the past isn’t easy to overcome.

  1. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. It is SO awesome. You can see my post by going to: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/04/11/first-line-friday-82-2/. Currently, I am on chapter 22, so I will share a line from there.

    “The knock came late as the house rattled with the crashes and flashes of a spring thunderstorm.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤️📚

  2. Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer is on top of my “read this next” stack. I’m sharing from Chapter 1 on my blog, so here is the first line from the prologue:

    “A great philosopher looks at his various struggles as fodder for his innovative thinking, but, since I am not a great philosopher, I look at my struggles as something akin to stepping on a bee the size of a Komodo dragon.”

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  3. That book sounds very interesting. On my blog, I’m sharing a book by Mary Conneally, The Tangled Ties That Bind. Here, I will share the first lines of Chapter 3 in my current read, Signed, Sealed, Delighted by Crystal L. Barnes. “Distance. Joe needed distance. Only thing was, the one person he needed distance from was the one person he’d promised to watch over.”
