Oh my heart I have a new favorite Jonuil
BROTHER HARRY HAS BEEN PORTRAYED AS RATHER SANCTIMONIOUS IN Harry has been portrayed as rather sanctimonious in previous books in the series so it was a revelation to see his true character why he had acted that way it was just an act and his true character why he had acted that way it was just an act and his hidden vulnerabilities and struggles are The author made him so likeable and brought him to life with the fun and supportive relationship he has with his housekeeper his need for his mother s affection and his secret pastime that keeps him in better shape than most of his brothers I absolutely loved reading about his transformation thanks to Sarah s reappearance in his life and her challenge that has him examining what the role of a vicar really is Sarah is American though she considers England home and has an informality about her that is endearing and brings out the best in Harry I appreciated that she didn t hold on to the bitterness of rejection but rather rekindled the enuine friendship that brought her and Harry together in the first place The Jonuils face their share of trials and it was a joy to experience with Phillip Sorrel Layton Stanley and the others The author skillfully wove their lives together with the plot of Harry finding his footing as a brother and compassionate spiritual leader in the family and community Highly recommendI received a complimentary copy of the book all opinions in this review are my own Harold Jonuil and Sarah Sarvol had a teenage romance which came to nothing When she returns from America six years later she finds Harold aloof and distant so she challenges him to a vicar s competition to see who are best at helping parishioners Harold is struggling with secret passions and interests not normally associated with a vicar while Sarah has her very own problems keeping her from him The Heart of a Vicar is the sixth installment in The Jonuil Brothers series by Sarah M Eden published by Covenant Communications The story is set in Nottinghamshire England 1816 and is about Harold Jonuil second youngest of the Jonuil brothers who each have their own books He has secret passions and interests not associated with a vicar He feels not up to the job and considers leaving the profession Sarah Sarvol had a very close relationship with Harold as a teenager but Harold ended it to Between the Land and the Sea (Marinas Tales, go to Cambridge leaving them both heartbrokenSix years later she has returned and theyet to spend time together and rekindle their friendship which opens both their eyes and their heartsMain character Harold Jonuil is secretly prone to a bit of silliness with a hobby of climbing and singing drinking shanties He seems like a well rounded type of character who would fit in well in today s society I feel sorry for him when trying to present what he thinks is the perfect vicar s act Supporting character Dowager Countess of Lambton Mater is Harold s mother She is a reoccurring character in all books in this series She is wise kind and caring I find her impressive as she seems the perfect confidant and o to person for anyone in need of advice She is my favorite in this storyI read The Heart of a Vicar as a standalone which worked perfectly It was beautifully written in the signature bantering dialogue found in all books I have read by Sarah "M Eden The character building was fabulous as Harold and Sarah felt like friendsSome major research must have been done to "Eden The character building was fabulous as Harold and Sarah felt like friendsSome major research must have been done to the detailed descriptions of the climbing sport in the 1800s I found it fascinating to learn about the thought process and feeling of climbing With this story I learned about what clerical duties really entail apart from sermons in church The part of the story I enjoyed the most was desc.

Personality The Jonuil brothers are an
interesting lot each struggling in their own way teasing and torturing each other but coming together lot each struggling in their own way teasing and torturing each other but coming together a strong way when the needs arise I think that pretty much sums up familial dynamics for a lot of us It makes it easy to love these people and root for their happiness Each book may focus on one brother in this family but in each book they are all present in some way I love that they never o away but we see a "continuation of their stories in each new book that comes our way "of their stories in each new book that comes our way is described by his sister in law as adrift I love that description especially as we come to know Harold better He has so many ideas of what he ought to be and what he ought to do that somewhere in the process of becoming a vicar he lost himself Thank Gone for Soldiers goodness Sarah comes back into the picture She is the turning point for Harold and the catalyst for his change I love her and I love her for HaroldAs with all of Sarah Eden s books I was filled with emotion She has aentle way of telling a story that fills up all the crevices of my heart Content some mild peril verbal abuse I received a complimentary copy of this book All opinions expressed are my own I so looked forward to this book It s been a long time coming Eden s writing style has changed over the years she has settled into a style that I like It is a deep feeling book with lots of hard situations and nothing comes out perfect but this book was so reat I was so happy with the way everything wrapped up I just love a happily ever after and this I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my ownThanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via NetgalleyThis was a clean regent romance story Although it was book number 6 in series it was my first book from this authorSecond chance story I felt bad for hero he did feel loved appreciated by his family his brothers only were laughing at him all the time And this man was kind and shy one he didnt fight his family back Sometimes i felt like hi was a weak person He wasnt secure in himself I wish he was strongMaybe its miI liked this heroine a lot although she was through a lot of bad things she didnt lost her inner light and kindnessSafe read No sex scenes I d recomend it to teens I absolutely love the Jonuil family These brothers can be a handful but they are fiercely loyal to each other and those who are dear to members of the family I loved having all of the bro We finally ot Harry s story He s been the uiet Jonuil brother in the series and we haven t known much about him other than he s a vicar and he loves his family His brothers tease him mercilessly Holy Harry and we now know he doesn t like it In this story we see his interests his problems his aspirations but he keeps them to himself thinking he has to act properly at all times as an example to his parishioners He s at ease with his housekeeper than his family but slowly he opens up and becomes emotionally available Part of this is due to Sarah Sorvel s return from America They were friends and had feelings for each other before she left 6 years prior and finds him very different from the person she knew Little by little Harry s fear of disappointing everyone Mean Girls gives way to confidence and he rises to the occasion than once the escape scene and the scene when Sorrel Phillip s wife makes Harry promise something in particular It was a treat to see the other brothers and their families and Mater of course Can t wait to read Charlie s story we already know who he soing to end with I received a copy from the publisher through Netgalley and this is my honest opinion. Jonuil the only man who has ever claimed her heart But when she comes face to face with her former beau she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession Soon despite their exasperation with each other they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried but is it too late for second chance. ,
