A Home for My Heart by Anne Mateer - Review

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for being an influencer. The following post contains advertisement.

A sweet story of hope and love set against the poignant backdrop of a 1910 orphanage.
Sadie Sillsby works as the assistant to the matron at the Raystown Home for Orphan and Friendless Children, pouring all her energy into caring for the boys and girls who live there and dreaming of the day she'll marry her beau, Blaine, and have children of her own. But when the matron surprises everyone by announcing her own engagement, Sadie is suddenly next in line for the esteemed job of running the orphanage. There's one glitch. The matron cannot be
 married. She must focus her attention on the financial, legal, and logistical matters of the Home. Sadie's heart is torn. Should she give up her plans for a life with Blaine in order to continue serving these children who have no one else? Does she, a young woman who was once an orphan herself, have what it takes to succeed in such a challenging career? And when the future of the Home begins to look bleak, can Sadie turn things around before the place is forced to close forever?
This book is available through Baker Publishing and other online retailers.

I was blessed with this book by the author and publisher in exchange for being an influencer.
Today, my friend Starr is guest posting on my blog her opinion of the book!

This is what she had to say:
This was a good book to curl up  with on a rainy day.   A very heart-warming story about an orphanage ran by people that really loved and helped their children.  The main character had been an orphan herself.    She finds herself the Matron of the orphanage , but it becomes complicated when her beau wants to marry her.   The matron of the orphanage can't be married.   There are a lot of  relationship  conflicts that go on in this book that make you hold your breath and your heart ache.   If  all of that isn't enough,  the orphanage as at the risk of being closed.   You will have to read the book though, to see how all of that works out.
