About A Heart’s Betrayal
Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.
When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered an awful truth: her deceased husband was a bigamist. And what’s more, the home she thought she inherited never belonged to her at all.
Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers.
But then she meets Isaac Liddle, a handsome soldier with a kind heart. When he begins to court her, Emmie wonders whether she could ever really be his—and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.

A Heart’s Betrayal is the fourth book in the “Journey of the Heart” series by Colleen Coble. It is my least favorite of the four I’ve read so far. The story started off strong, but moved very slowly after that. The synopsis alludes to the fact that Emmie is pregnant with another man’s baby, and she wonders if Isaac will be accepting of that. However, the pregnancy is not even revealed until the end of the story, and at that point, she and Isaac are just friends.
I hope this story is played out more in the next book of the series, because it has potential. But, at this point, it was pretty disappointing.
