A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino A REVIEW

Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton still grieves the loss of his beloved wife, but he knows his two young sons need a mother. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the Colonies. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.

This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino's own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life--and a legacy--in the New World.

When Rebecca DeMarino traveled to Horton Point, Long Island, with her mother, Helen Jean Horton Worley, in 1999, passions collided: her love of faith, family, travel, history, and writing. Rebecca's debut novel, A PLACE IN HIS HEART, is a historical romance based on Mary and Barnabas Horton, Rebecca's ninth great-grandparents. Set in 1600's Southold, Long Island, book one of The Southold Chronicles will be released by Revell in June, 2014. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and when not writing, she enjoys family and genealogy, travel, reading, running, baking and gardening. Rebecca is represented by Greg Johnson of WordServe Literary Agency.

  A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino has a good story line that could make a great story but I feel this book is really not that good.
   How can anyone be as cold hearted and mean as Barnabas is. I know he lost his first wife and loved her dearly, but to me he seems to keep holding on to her even though he married Mary. He doesn’t even try to Mary first in his life. His first wife is still there commanding everything they do. Barnabas’ oldest son acts the same way, but Mary keeps on even though her heart is so sad and breaking. To me it seems like Barnabas is only thinking of himself. In a marriage you have to put God first than the other person.
  I think this book was cruel and hurtful to second marriages. If every man was like Barnabas no one would get married a second time.
  So I didn’t like this story, but I read it all, because that was what I was suppose to do to review it.
