Overview


For Ben Haynes it is love at first sight, but can a Boston socialite find true happiness with a cowboy from Kansas?

Once childhood friends, Ben Haynes is taken with Amelia Carlyle when he runs into her at her sister’s wedding. Although he will be returning to Kansas and life on his father’s ranch, Ben calls on Amelia several times, and they find they have more in common than they first realized. As he leaves for Kansas, they promise to write.

Back in Kansas, Ben begins to save money toward a home for Amelia even though he has not made his intentions known. He’s relying on God to make a way. Meanwhile, Amelia is presented to society and has several young men vying for her attention.

Although Ben has captured Amelia’s heart, her parents make every effort to discourage the relationship, even forbidding Amelia to correspond with him. Amelia tells Ben that she will wait for him as long as it takes, but will the love and loss they experience along the way bring them closer or drive them apart forever?

    Following Your Heart's Desire

    This book keeps your attention right from the beginning. The story is set in a high society Boston era, in the late 1870's and Amelia Carlyle is to be presented. She does not want to do this, but her parents have raised her to. Her father expects her to marry well, and she feels God wants her to obey.
    Enter a long ago friend all grown up, Ben Hayes. He is now a tall, handsome young man, but he lives in Kansas. Amelia becomes, of course, infatuated with Ben, and he likewise! He comes from Society, the right people, people of Boston.
    Amelia's parents, especially her Father thwarts Ben's relationship with her. He forbids her to see him, and wants her to pursue other relationships right here in Massachusetts. They are very afraid of loosing her to Kansas.
    With all praying for answers, and wanting to follow God's plans, you will hope they will listen to what He is telling them. A great read and surprise how things turn out!

    I received this book from the Publisher Realms, and was not required to give a positive review.
