Heart of England: Seven Suitors for Seven Sisters

A Hero For Heather

Needing a respite from child welfare social work, Heather Blume is excited about a short-term opportunity to work at a busy North Yorkshire day center for the homeless. When one of the men she’s been helping saves her from a vicious attack, she’s so grateful she violates one of the most important rules in her profession—she takes him home to tend his wounds. But there’s more to her actions than merely being the Good Samaritan. The man’s upper-crust speech has Heather intrigued. She has no doubt he’s a gentleman fallen far from grace and is determined to reunite the enigmatic young man with his family, if only he would open up about his life.

Paxton Rathbone is desperate to make his way home. His inheritance long spent, he stows away on a fishing trawler bound from Norway to England only to be discovered, beaten and discarded at Scarborough’s port. On home soil at last, all it would take is one phone call. But even if his mother and father are forgiving, he doubts his older brother will be.

Paxton has grown too accustomed to the disdain of mankind, which perhaps is why Heather’s kindness penetrates his reserves and gives him reason to hope. Reason to love? Perhaps reason to stay. But there’s a fine line between love and gratitude, for both Paxton and Heather.

“Marion Ueckermann has done it again! She has produced a wonderful feel good story with God at the center. As the novel ends, so a feeling of calm and peacefulness descends on the readers. It has been a tale well told. I cannot wait for book number four.”

“In A Hero for Heather, Marion Ueckermann has combined the Biblical story of the prodigal son with a sweet romance and written a wonderful story showing God’s love, healing and forgiveness. I was pulled into Paxton and Heather’s lives from the first pages and loved reading about their journey to finding God’s plan in their lives. Thank you, Marion, for another beautiful and uplifting story. I loved it!”
