Overview

Tabetha Small is a subsistence farmer in 1720 Bedford, New York. She loves her home and wants the life her grandparents had--a loving marriage and fruitful farm. This is shattered when her grandfather, Josiah, dies. Under colonial law, a single woman cannot live alone. Tabetha has two choices; leave her home or trust the strange man who comes down from the mountain. Christian Dalby is a man with a duty. Framed as a thief and branded on the hand with a telltale "T," Dalby has lived a hermit's existence on the mountain behind the farm. Dalby had promised Josiah, his only link to civilization, that he would look after Tabetha if the need ever arose. Now he must fulfill that promise, sacrificing his solitude.

Editorial Reviews

Kate Rothwell
A moving story of love and forgiveness, filled with rich detail of daily life. Tabetha is strong, vulnerable and true to her time. Anna Bowling's lyrical first person narrative brings you into Tabetha's world and heart--and you treasure both before the story's over.

My Outcast Heart takes place in colonial New York in the 1720’s. It is the story of Tabetha Small and her love, Christian Dalby. As the title implies, Dalby is an Outcast in Tabetha’s world. Together, they go up against some “villainous villains” that you will just love to hate! The book transforms you back to a time when life was different, work was hard, and relationships were important. We follow the story through Tabetha’s eyes, with her dogs and cats accompanying her, through the snow and the cold weather, dealing with all the things life throws at her. It’s nice to read a love story that doesn’t have people jumping into bed every five minutes! I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
