Choices of the Heart by Laurie Alice Eakes was extremely hard for me to get into. I couldn't get past the back-woods language that was used and I got disinterested rather quickly. I was unable to finish this book though I found the premise to be interesting.
From the back cover:
Esther Cherrett comes from a proud line of midwives and was trained by her mother to take over the family calling. When a terrible scandal threatens all she holds dear, Esther flees, taking a position as a teacher in the wild western m ountains of Virginia. But instead of the refuge she was seeking, Esther finds herself in the midst of a dealy family feud--and courted by two men on opposite sides of the conflict. All she wants is to run away again.
Yet could it be that her past holds the key to reconciliation--and love?
In this gripping story of trust, deception, and bittersweet loss, you'll discover the true meaning of choices of the heart.
