|A great romance, and much more.
Running Home, the first novel in the Heart’s Haven series, is an enjoyable read, a lovely romance that will leave you happy and satisfied. It has likable and realistic characters and a solid story.
But this novel is much more than that. O’Connor tackles a serious social issue—domestic violence—and she does that with no hesitation, in an honest and brave manner, empowering her heroine with love, hope and the courage to confront it.
Running Home asks you questions; requires your emotional and mental involvement; shows you the power of love; leaves you thinking about it long after you close the last page.
It asks you to be not only the reader but a participant in the story as well.
