I’ve been looking forward to this book and was so happy when I opened the mailbox and found this beauty!
I think A Haven for Her Heart might be my new favorite from Susan Anne Mason. The author tackles some hard truths lived by women in the 1940’s era. Olivia Rosetti’s journey to friendship with both Rugh Bennington and Darius Reed is a tumultuous one, given her wounds. But she is a survivor.
Each of these characters must face not only their own personal baggage but navigate prejudice and societal pressures and carve out their place in the world.
An unforgettable read!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Homeless after being released from a women’s reformatory in 1939
Toronto, Olivia Rosetti is taken in by an angel of mercy, Ruth Bennington. The two discover they share a painful past and together decide to open a maternity home for troubled women.
Despite the success of the home, Olivia is haunted by her inhumane treatment at the reformatory and the way her newborn son was taken from her. She feels undeserving of love–until she meets businessman Darius Reed. Although his attention makes her heart soar, he can never learn of her past.
Greek widower Darius Reed is determined to protect his daughter from the prejudice that killed her mother. He’ll ensure her future by marrying a woman from a respected Toronto family. But when Darius meets Olivia, he’s immediately drawn to her beauty and compassion.
Can love prove stronger than prejudice and past mistakes? Or will Olivia’s secrets destroy any chance at a future together?
