Betrayal is the second book in the “Where the Heart Lives” series written by Robin Lee Hatcher. Though this book could be read on its own, this reader would recommend reading book one Belongingfirst as intended by the author. There are several details in book two that would not be clear without the reading of book one.
This book is set in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s in Wyoming. The main characters, Julia Grace and Hugh Brennan, have lived lives filled with disappointment and betrayal. Hugh finds himself as the book opens happening upon a ranch on his journey to Idaho to seek out the whereabouts of his orphaned sisters. The ranch belongs to a beautiful young widow, Julia Grace.
Woven throughout this book is the guidance of the hand of God on the lives of two who have found Him to be their only solace in the midst of great difficulty. This beautiful story of finding peace and love when least expected is one this reader found captivating and a joy to read. Book three in the series, Beloved promises to be just as enjoyable.
