A WORTHY HEART by Susan Anne Mason is a "worthy" book to read. (pardon my play on words.) It is the second novel in the Courage to Dream series, but can stand alone. I have not read the first one but thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Maggie Montgomery and her brother Gabe travel to America from Ireland to visit their elder brother Rylan and his wife Colleen. (spoiler alert if you plan on reading Irish Meadows)
Unbeknownst to the family, Maggie is planning on finding employment and remaining in America. Gave is intent on learning all he can about the firefighting methods of America and taking them back to Ireland.
Colleen's brother Adam has just been released from prison for and hopes to reunited with his family and mend the relationships.
Aurora Hasting wishes to become a nurse but her father intends that she marries well and feels nursing is beneath her.
These lives all become even more intertwined than before and strive to see their own dreams fulfilled.
Will they succeed or will propriety and family interfere and smash their dreams?
I received this book free for an honest review from Bethany House.
