"At 400 pages, RELUCTANT HEARTS is almost intimidatingly long. It’s also a much grittier, almost difficult at times, story to read than I’m used to. But the final word is that this first book in Karen Wiesner’s Wounded Warriors Series is worth the time invested...and then some. I usually prefer reading stories that are easier to read, but there’s something powerful in the storytelling that is not only compelling but rewarding as well. I don’t usually reveal as much about a story, or about the characters I’m reviewing as I did here, but there’s something about these two people that calls to me. I strongly felt the need to explain just what it is about Wendy and Paul that affected me. This is not a light story, it’s often... More > not even a happy place to be, but it’s about people, real people. People whose lives are not perfect and who, like so many of us at times, have to struggle to make it through another hour, another day. People with flaws, with good intentions that go wrong, with hope--or with no hope. They are also like many people around us, some that we may even know. And I think that’s the true strength of Karen Wiesner’s writing. With her guidance, we truly get to know who Paul and Wendy are; there are no secrets, no hidden facets. Karen Wiesner introduces us and takes us right into the lives, hearts and minds of the people in her book and I, for one, cannot look away; learning about other people can often lead us to insights about ourselves. This is the first book that I’ve read by this author and I’m extremely fortunate enough to have the other books in this series to read. And I must say being able to read a series right through--or perhaps with small breaks in between--is a real treat. RELUCTANT HEARTS is a stunning introduction to Ms. Wiesner’s Wounded Warriors Series and to her skillful recitation about the lives of those that she introduces us to. Bravo!" ~Kathy for Dark Diva Reviews< Less
