DESTINY OF HEART

By Catherine Ulrich Brakefield


Civil unrest, an incurable sickness, and a lost love, plunge the McConnells’ into a battle for survival. “Catherine Ulrich Brakefield writes beautiful poetic prose that brings the settings and clothing of the era to life. Her well-rounded characters aren't perfect, they have flaws, but they endure the most trying of times with dignity and grace. The romances are true to life with ups and downs… I can imagine this series being produced for a Hallmark series in the vein of When Calls the Heart. Ms. Brakefield is a talented, amazing writer of inspirational Christian fiction.” Amazon Review, DA
