Forbidden love. That’s what Philippe Clavell and Bridget Barrington have. Philippe is a French noble who became an indentured servant to the Barrington family when his money was stolen during his passage to the New World. When Bridget declares her love for Philippe, Bridget's father releases Philippe early from his servitude on the condition that he never speaks to Bridget again. This works out well until Philippe learns that Bridget is engaged to a man that is all wrong for her, a man who has ulterior motives that are less than pure for marrying her. Philippe, with the help of his brother Charles, decides that he is willing to risk it all to save the love of his life.
Where Hearts are Free was one of those books that I just did not want to put down. I would say that I was going to read one chapter before bed and one would then turn into two, three, maybe even four chapters before I was willing to turn the lights out. It was uplifting to see how the characters put their faith in God and trusted that everything would work out the way that it was supposed to. That is something that I think people today often forget, myself included, so it was a good reminder for me that as long as I trust in God things will end up working out how they should in the end, even if they don’t seem very good right now. This was the third book in the Darkness to Light trilogy and since I never read the first two, I do plan on going back to read them because if I enjoyed the third one this much, I'm sure the other two are just as good!
