Angels of the Heart Reviews
It has been far too long since journalist Maryanne Lynch has been to church. Since the death of her brother Mark, she has felt betrayed and abandoned by God. “She wasn’t sure about anything anymore…” The Townsend Barn holds special, unforgettable memories for her. It was a symbol of her childhood, her family, her identity.” Travis Collimore and Elwood Stewart are both vying for her attention and affection. “You’re the angel of my heart.” She seeks assistance in saving her beloved barn, the heart of her community. “…moving on did not mean forgetting the past.” As she fights the good fight, she learns to stand up for what she believes in and what is right for everyone. This story contains several faith based discussions. I enjoyed this story of self-discovery, love, and selfless service. “Nothing on the surface was black or white; it was all varying shades of gray.”
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first book, Light of the Heart, in the Sterling Lakes series, but it was no problem to instead start reading first the Angels of the Heart book by Regina Andrews. I definitely plan on reading Light of the Heart soon because the blurb and excerpts about stain glass creator, Cascade Preston, sounds fascinating. Regina Andrews hooked me instantly into her Sterling Lakes Book Two: Angels of the Heart. From the first page, I felt like I was on the set of the studio of WMAS with Maryanne Lynch, a television journalist. Although Maryanne is engaged to Elwood, a wonderful man, she’s eager to talk with an old high school friend, Travis Collimore, when he comes to the studio. As a developer, he tells Maryanne how the Townsend Barn will be destroyed when they do renovations of St. Luke’s Church. Maryanne hasn’t seen Travis for years, so she goes to Sterling Lakes Diner to continue their conversation and to catch up. She’s happy to see him but isn’t pleased that his consortium group have plans to destroy the old barn along with its rare angel weather vane.She’s surprised that while speaking with Travis in the diner she starts feeling warm. Why is Travis having this effect on her after all these years? Maryanne is a feisty and amazing woman. She decides to save the barn from being torn down, even though her fiancé, Elwood, disagrees with her. Her determination and compassion is what draws the town’s people to her goal of saving something that is more than a barn to everyone. It seems to represent the spirit of the people. It’s heartwarming how they come together as a unit to save what is important to their community. The barn is symbolic especially to Maryanne. She has happy memories of playing with her brother Mark in the barn before he died at age six. Losing the barn would be devastating to Maryanne because her childhood is tied with her precious times there. Maryanne’s caring for others doesn’t stop at her TV studio. She reaches out to a pregnant teenager, Crystal, who needs her assistance. Travis is also a multidimensional character with his charity work being a priority in his life. He flies a helicopter for the Angel Flight Program and delivers transplant patients to the hospitals where the organs are available. The way that Andrews weaved the story of Maryanne and Travis is touching, sweet, and even humorous at times. Reading how each character approaches their spiritual growth as Christians was uplifting to me. As I read this book, I felt like the author’s words poured from her heart as a Christian. Regina Andrews has created an inspirational romance readers will root for and I highly recommend this book.
Angels of the Heart is a well-written Christian romance that will appeal to anyone looking for a true, clean romance. It has some light mentions of God and His inspiration in our daily lives, but otherwise isn’t a preachy story at all. It portrays great imagery of people and especially of the place where the story takes place. Maryanne Lynch is host at one of the TV stations in Sterling Lakes. Her love for people and the quaint town has made her the best in the market. After a particular segment she did about the renovation of the parish in the town, she not only finds a problem with it, but also finds out that all things in our past come back to haunt us.The presence of the real estate developer, Travis Collimore, in town is a two edged knife. Once, Maryanne stood Travis up many years ago for their Senior Prom. Now, he has come back to destroy a landmark that is entrenched very deeply in the lives of the townspeople and in her own heart. Yet, what can you do alone against a corporation that has the means and people to get what they want? It is at this time that Maryanne feels once again the touch of God in her heart. Years before her unanswered prayers for her now dead brother prompted her to not believe in Him anymore. Now, with a re-found love for God, she hopes that she will save the historic landmark of Sterling Lakes, and also save her heart before they are both buried by the handsome Travis Collimore.As you close it’s last pages, this story will leave you content and rewarded. It will be well liked by young adults to adults alike for it’s clean, warming, and wholesome story.
