Within My Heart
“Within my Heart” by Tamera Alexander is about Rachel Boyd and her struggles trying to keep her ranch alive and raise her two boys. Rachel was left a widow after her husband Thomas was killed in a hunting accident. Rachel lays the blame for that accident on someone else and has never been able to move on with her life. When the new doctor in town, Rand Brookston, shows her some attention, she wants nothing to do with him. Her father was a doctor and she assumes all doctors are just like him. Slowly Rachel realizes that Rand is not the man her father was and she begins to trust him and become his friend. Rand wants more than friendship and does everything he can to win her heart. Together Rachel and Rand help take care of a friend who is dying. After spending so much time together, Rachel starts to care more about Rand. When Rand saves her two sons, she realizes just how much she loves him. I received a free copy of this book to review from Bethany House.
