Review of Forget Me Not

Title: Forget Me Not

Author: Amber Stokes

Series: The Heart’s Spring #1
Chapters: 24

Genre: Christian Historical

Rating: 4.5 Stars

     Forget Me Not is actually the prequel to Bleeding Heart though Bleeding Heart was published first. In Forget me Not Elizabeth Lawson is wanting to find her brother whom she has never meet before. David recues her from danger and agrees to help her find her brother. Both Elizabeth and David are running from their pasts. They just don’t realize it. Nor do they realize that they have ties to a simple flower the Forget Me Not flower.

     I enjoyed reading Forget Me Not. I read it over the course of two days. If it hadn’t been for school I would have had it finished in one day. Just like Amber’s debut this book was an emotional read. But it was a book worth reading. Forget Me Not is a book that will make you think, and in this case it makes you think about forgiveness. Both God’s forgiveness and forgiving others.  

It was nice to see some of the same characters from Bleeding Heart in this novel as well. I enjoy reading Amber’s writing style and novels. I am also looking forward to the next book in the trilogy Morning Glory. Amber’s books are a great read for anyone who likes Christian Historical Fiction and the west.

A startling revelation sends Elizabeth Lawson escaping into a stormy night - and tosses her into the arms of a young mountain man with secrets of his own. When he offers to take her to the Nevada mining town where her long-lost brother lives, she accepts. Suspicions and uncertainties are pushed aside as she struggles to forge a future for herself by meeting her past.

David has been hiding from his painful memories for years. The solitude and wildness of the Rocky Mountains are challenge and comfort enough for him - until Elizabeth's arrival. Fueled by anger and a sense of obligation, he strives to take control of his new situation...only to find control slipping from his grasp with each new emotion Elizabeth evokes in him.

When their journey leads them on unexpected paths, can two lonely hearts find the strength to remember the good amid the heartbreak?
