Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.
When Sarah’s ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there is only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late for second chances?
REVIEW by LAWONDER!):
The Heart of a Vicar is another of, talented writer, Sarah M. Eden's novels.
This is the 6th book of the Jonquil Brothers series, and did not disappoint.
Harold Jonquil feels unsettled in his calling as Vicar. Was he really "cut out" for this? In the midst of his confusion, adding to it was an unexpected dinner invitation to dine at his eldest brother's home - not on the regular Sunday get=together- dinner. He was in a state of hock when he discovered unexpected guests.
Sarah's heart was broken years ago by Harold Jonquil. They had been close friends for years and she truly loved him. The day before she left England to live in America, Harold ended their relationship in such a cruel way.
Now years later, she and her brother have returned for him to take his place as heir of an estate. Can she ever forgive Harold enough to attend his services each week?
This segment of the Jonqil series is delightfully intriguing with enough "twists" and events to keep the reader's interest, although at times, it is slightly repetitive.
The characters are all endearing and individual. Each has his or her very unique attributes and "quirks". The scenes are very easily visualized. The Book Cover and title are "well- fitted" but the Cover fails in attracting "the Browser's" eye.
For a great, relaxing "Summer read" this is perfect.
I offer a solid Four Stars rating.
