Heart on the Line by Karen Witmeyer

Set in the 1890’s Heart on the Line follows an unsual story of love through the telegraph that unintentionally echoes today’s world of online dating. The author has well defined characters and the novel goes at a good pace. I enjoyed that Heart on the Line had an unusual protagonist of Amos Bledsoe, he is quiet, reserved but through the novel the reader see’s that under his quiet nature is a strong spirit willing to do whatever it takes to keep Grace from danger.

I enjoyed the 1890’s setting, it felt well researched and believeable and the main characters were well developed and felt real, flaws and all. I hope you can check this out.

When Danger Arrives, It’s More Than Just Her Heart on the Line

Grace Mallory is tired of hiding. She hungers for a normal life, perhaps even a suitor like two of her friends in Harper’s Station have found. But when the man she believes responsible for her father’s death discovers her whereabouts, survival takes priority.

Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His fellow telegrapher, the mysterious Miss G, has been the ideal companion. For months, their friendship–dare he believe, courtship?–over the wire has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intends for him. However, when he intercepts an ominous message and discovers her life is in peril, Amos must shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
