It is 1866 and Sarah McCabe has accepted a governess position in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, hoping to become independent of her Missouri family. The taste of luxury, culture and social privilege excites Sarah, who has always wanted to live in the city. Upon arrival Sarah meets Richard Navis, who is finishing his indentureship to Captain Sinclair and plans to take over his family farm as soon as he has held up his end of the bargain. Richard and Sarah form a friendship started by the bond of their mutual employer, Captain Brian Sinclair. Soon Richard finds himself falling for Sarah, but does she love him back or is she falling victim to the captains charms? Sarah is left to decide who she loves and what God truly wants for her.

My review:
Uncertain Heart is an impressive historical fiction romance novel. It has all the elements of a romance novel that attracts the reader, keeping them hooked and aching for more. I personally feel there are two types of romance novels, those that are hot, steamy and like kryptonite and those that are full of valor, gentleman ship, courting and all those other romantic bits that keep you excited and aroused without actual sex. Uncertain Heart falls into the latter of these categories. It is a charming, clean cut romantic novel. I easily fell for Richard, finding myself rooting for him throughout the story. The novel had a love triangle, drama, uncertainty and in the end clarity and true love in the deepest sense. The story was as much about Sarah and her quest in finding herself as it was about the romance and history.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is book two of its’ series, which I have not had the pleasure of reading its’ predecessor. I loved that I could read book two without feeling lost due to not having read book one. It is a free standing novel on its’ own even though it continues the McCabe family saga. This was the first novel I have read by author Andrea Kuhn Boeshaar and I will read more. She is a talented author and I really enjoyed reading her novel. It was easy to get attached to the characters and the story line. She does a wonderful job of making the reader want more! Luckily the first couple pages of book three are included at the end to hold you over.
