A Place in His Heart


A Place in His Heart

By Rebecca DeMarino


About the Book:


Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton is still in love with his deceased wife and needs only a mother for his two young sons. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the Colonies. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.

This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino’s own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life–and a legacy–in the New World.

My Review:


All Anglican Mary Langton wants is to marry for love. After being left at the altar and being disgraced in her small hamlet, her father urges her to marry someone else. Barnabas Horton his still grieving the loss of his wife but wants a mother for his two boys, Joseph and Benjamin. Barnabas and Mary get married but not for love, the love that Mary longs.


Barnabas decides to move his family to the New World, a place where Mary knows no one, a place where she is going to be alone. Mary does everything a wife and mother is supposed to do, she even tries to capture Barnabas’ heart and longs for a child of her own. But years pass and she doesn’t have either.


What will happen to Mary and Barnabas? Will she find a place in his heart? Will she have a child? A Place in His Heart is set in 1630 London and Long Island; this book is actually based on Ms. DeMarino’s ancestors that traveled to Long Island in the mid-1600s. You definitely will not be disappointed in this book by an upcoming new author.


I received this book from the publisher for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
