    5. "A Heart's Home, A Novella" by Laura J Marshall gets 5 stars. Even through I like longer stories this was great for reading before retiring for night.

At the beginning of the story she is traveling with Braddock to go to England to become Braddock's brother wife in an arranged marriage. But on the way there is danger and [...]

    6. I enjoyed reading A Heart's Home , A Novella very much. Once I started reading I didn't want to stop. I sincerely hope that there will be another book or books to continue the story. The story begins in India in 1746. We follow Asyra as she learns that her grandmother in England has sent for her and has arranged for her to get married. She has quite an adventure traveling from India to England. I look forward to reading more of the story hopefully very soon. I will be looking for more books writ [...]

    7. A very sweet tale of a girl who finds love at a difficult time in her life. Uprooted from the only land she's known and taken miles away to a country the direct opposite, Asyra feels uprooted and cast aside. Yet the heart finds its home in an unexpected place, with that of Braddock. This book was just the right size for my busy day and full of fascinating details about India and England. Laura J. Marshall is a master of description. I felt like I was there. Both characters are well-rounded and t [...]

    8. Healing for a Heart Between Worlds June 19, 2013This was a twist on the story of mixed parentage. It isn't usually an English mother and an Indian father, or a girl. I liked the difference. Asyra is strong and sweet. The story is kind of a mix between Sabrina and The Far Pavillions. Braddock has spent his life trying to make his family successful, in spite of the other weak men in his family. He doesn't plan on getting involved with a scheme to arrange a marriage with his brother, beyond bringin [...]

    9. This book hit a special place in my heart. I'd been to India and loved revisiting it through Asyra's eyes. Also, I was born in England, grew up in America, and have lived overseas, so I know what it's like to feel as if you don't belong anywhere. Laura J. Marshall captured that feeling in such a poignant way, as well as the journey toward finding a home in one's faith and in the heart of another. What a beautiful story!

    10. I really enjoyed this book, I didn't want it to end. This book was very well written and i enjoyed the main character Asyra right from the start!! I was drawn to her spunk and boldness. I love how Asyra stayed true to herself no matter what the situation was. I feel like there should be squeal to this story, As I thought at the end it was just getting started for real fireworks to shot off If your looking for an easy short summer read I think you will enjoy this romantic suspense story.

    11. I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. I give this review freely and have not agreed to give a positive review. I loved the book. It is a very quick read. The characters were well developed despite the brevity of the book. I really liked Asyra's development and her struggle in her faith. It was very believable. It was easy to identify with her. My only complaint is that the book was too short! I hope there will be a sequel.

    12. Thoroughly enjoyed reading "A Heart's Home." Just the right amount of suspense mixed with a lovely romance. I love that Braddock taught Asyra to read with the Bible, the ultimate love story. Reading is a good escape and I enjoyed "visiting" India and England. I am curious about the future for Braddock and Asyra. What will life be like in England or will there be a return to the beloved India?

    13. This story is filled with just too many inaccuracies and implausibilities. It started with the unmarried Asyra wearing a sari--a garment not worn before a girl's wedding--and white, no less, the mourning color, worn by widows. Then we have a part-Indian girl with blue eyes and pale blond hair. Then the idea of a titled family arranging a mixed marriage fails to take into account eighteenth century race relations. A titled family purposely arranging for a "black" (as Indians were called at that t [...]

    14. Just right romance novella--a nice afternoon read that takes you to far flung colonial India where an orphaned beauty of English descent lives as an outsider. News comes that her British grandmother has arranged a marriage for her, but it's not her betrothed arriving to escort her home. When the French attack Madras before the party can leave port, an adventure on land and see ensues. Asyra's faith will see her through to the place she can call "A Heart's Home."This book has a nice mix of advent [...]

From the beginning, my heart was drawn to Asyra's tale of loss and hope for what's to come. A short read with a beautiful, heartwarming story of love. Definitely a reread!

    16. A Heart's Home was a good story that I enjoyed reading. For some reason it didn't grab me like others do. Maybe it was my mood. Nevertheless, it was worth the time spent reading it.I received an e-copy of this book in an online giveaway.

    17. A Heart's Home is a quick easy read that left me wanting to know what happens next. This novella needs to have a sequel. The purpose of the naming ceremony to the story was unclear to me until later in the story and then it made sense.

    18. Liked the book.I would like to have seen the ending expanded a little more. The ending left me wanting to know how her grandmother reacted and what happened to Carne.

    19. WonderfulA sweet short story about love unexpected. Well written and enjoyable, the romance, adventure and it course happy ending makes this a sure two thumb up read.
