As a newlywed, Mattie Welch Morgan had specific ideas about what her married life would be like. None of those included going to Montana with her husband to start a cattle ranch. But after Brady Morgan decided they are going west to homestead a claim, Mattie has to change her notions about her future.
Then tragedy strikes the Morgan family and Mattie is left struggling with her faith and wondering if her life is all a mistake. What will Mattie choose to do with her heart, and will she ever know peace and happiness again?
"Mattie's Heart" takes place in the years spanning 1915-1919, and shares the story of one young couple with a pioneer spirit--their trials, turmoil, and sorrows as they strive to find God's will for their lives.
Those who have read the "True Cover" series by Ruth Kyser will recognize Brady & Mattie Morgan as the great-grandparents of FBI Agent, Samuel Clemens Morgan.

Doing things you don't want to do and living where you don't want to live is the premise of this story. How God intervenes in little ways in spite of the doing of the main characters makes this an enjoyable and thoughtful read. This is a nicely crafted story, full of pathos and understanding.
I’m not usually one for this type of story, but I couldn’t wait to read this story of the Patriarch and Matriarch of the Morgan Family. The founders of the Blue Creek Ranch. I am a huge fan of the True Cover series and I really wanted to see how it all started. Mattie and Brady endured a lot of hardship and loss, but didn’t lose their faith. They realized that God was their Provider, Sustainer, Comforter, and their Absolute Everything. If you have read the True Cover series, you will see where Sam gets his awesome qualities.
