A Worthy Heart

A Worthy Heart (Courage to Dream, #2)A Worthy Heart by Susan Anne Mason
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’d been anticipating this book since finishing the first in the series, Irish Meadows. Susan Anne Mason did not disappoint! She picked up where the first book left off and expanded the saga of this Irish family in early 1900s New York.

Adam O’Leary wasn’t the hero in the first book, far from it. But he’s paid his dues, done his time, and he’s back to put his life together. Maggie Montgomery and her brother, Gabe, are fresh off the boat from Ireland to visit their other brother, Rylan. Aurora Hastings is back, still hurting from Gilbert Whelan’s stunt in the first book. She’s grown through that experience and now has backbone enough to stand up to her father. While everything may seem straightforward, an element of evil lurks in the shadows.

The reader should take these stories in order. While either could be enjoyed as a stand alone, many of the nuances of the story and the characters themselves would be missed. I highly recommend these stories to anyone who enjoys history, the Irish immigration to America, and a stirring romance … or two!
