Romancing the Stony Heart by Carla Terrell

Romancing the Stony HeartYou have heard of people speak of love at first sight, but is there really such a thing?  There is so much to consider when speaking about love and it is such a scary thing, do you take a chance or do you miss out on your chance at true happiness?

Carson King is a chaplain in the Air Force and also best friends with Lieutenant Joshua Nelson.  Carson is smitten by Joshua’s sister Seprah and can’t wait until the next visit home with Joshua just so that he can see her.  Carson visits the Nelson family twice a year but his visits are always bitter-sweet considering that his best friend Joshua isn’t there with him.  He tries to keep it business as usual but Carson can no longer fight this desire that he has in him to be with the woman that he loves.  Will God help him with his dilemma or will he just be without the true love of his life?

Seprah Nelson is the middle girl of five sisters in the Nelson family.  She stands out from the others with her mild-manner demeanor and her striking beauty.  Seprah is no stranger to the dating scene, but it is only something to do until she gets that one true love that she has been wishing for.  Being a preacher’s kid should mean that your faith should be stronger than most considering your father’s vocation but Seprah is a non-believer and that could cause her issues later in life.  Is she ready to deal with those issues or will she let true love pass her by?

Romancing the Stony Heart is a heart warming romance story because it takes you through a range of emotions.  The characters are believable and they compliment each other.  This is not a sad love story, it is one of hope and that makes it easy to read.  Carla Terrell brings the story to life and continues to give it life through the way she tells the story, makes you just want to reach out and hug everyone.  I loved the way this book flows and the story line is strong.  Romancing the Stony Heart is book number one in a trilogy and I am looking forward to the next book.

One thought on “Romancing the Stony Heart by Carla Terrell

  1. Carmen! Thank you for the review! What keen insight you have on the main characters in the novel. You have the amazing ability to know the “heart” of the protagonists I have created, (no matter how complicated those characters can be), and that blows me away. I am so glad reviewers like you are out there. You have know idea what a blessing you are to many new writers. So let me be the first to say, thank you so much. May God continue to send many blessings your way, as you have been a blessing to others. I have several more reviews coming in the next month or two, but your review is most coveted. Thank you again I’ll be keeping in tough. Carla
