In Rebecca DeMarino’s book, A Place in His Heart, Mary Langton is about to be forced into a marriage she does not want, so she convinces her father to let her marry the man she is falling in love with, Barnabas Horton. Although Barnabas does not reciprocate those same strong feelings, he feels that he must be married to have a mother for his two young sons. A few years into their marriage, they are traveling to The New World. Although Barnabas knew, from before their marriage, that he would leave his current home, he did not really share that with Mary.
One of the main reasons I liked this book is because one of my favorite genres is Historical Fiction. It was interesting to read about this time period and the persecution many people were going through because of their faith. In addition to the background of the story, I did like the character of Mary. She was a very likable character, and I liked her interaction with her new children. She really cared for them and raised them as her own, even though she seemed to be repeatedly reminded that they missed their birth mother. This was a pretty quick read, and I look forward to reading more books by Rebecca DeMarino.
