Where Hearts Are Free

Where Hearts Are Free is the third book in the Darkness to Light series by Golden Keyes Parsons. Bridget Barrington's life seems bright and full of promise. She belongs to a wealthy family and is much loved by them. She has fallen in love and hopes to spend the rest of her life with the man of her dreams. Phillipe Clavell also looks to his future with hope. Although his family has suffered great religious persecution and they have been separated by financial ruin, he looks forward to fulfilling his indentured servant hood soon and returning to his family. In the middle of such promise, their lives seem to unravel. Bridget learns that her family is arranging a marriage that is most distasteful to her. Philip is concerned about his brother who is still indentured. He is also crushed by Bridget's proclamation and the impossibility their relationship seems. Most frightening of all, Bridget's very life is in danger. Can these obstacles be over come?

This book follows, what I think, is a typical Christian Romance Novel pattern until the end where there are some events that surprised me. It did put a different twist on the whole book. If you're looking for a story with a lot of writing about the character's faith, this is not for you. There is very little from Bridget about that and where the other characters mention it, at times, it seems like it was added as an after thought. The story, over all, was good and I found myself cheering for the good guys, booing the bad guys, and by the end, wanting just a bit more (but in a good way). Despite the time difference, it is not hard to identify with the characters. This is an entertaining read. It has sparked my interest in the other books of the series as well.
