A Heart Most Certain

A Heart Most Certain, the latest from Melissa Jagears, opens with Lydia King approaching Nicholas Lowe, one of the richest men in town, with the intention of asking for a donation for the group she volunteers with at her church.  Mr. Lowe's response is a definite NO!

Lydia absolutely does not want to report her failure to Mrs. Little, the head of their church group, as well as her possible mother-in-law.  As Lydia begins to work with Nicholas in her attempt to acquire his funding, she discovers a whole different person than she had assumed he was.  Nicholas is actually very generous, giving in abundance from his riches!

By walking alongside Nicholas and assisting him in his endeavors, Lydia learns more about the ways he has already been involved in improving the lives of those in town, who are truly in need.  Lydia begins to see Nicholas in a whole, new light.  Her thoughts keep drifting more toward Nicholas than toward Sebastian Little, the man she hoped she would someday marry.  You will be surprised to see how God uses both Lydia and Nicholas to give each other a new outlook on the world and how God may want to use them both!

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my unbiased review.
