Refuge of the Heart is one of the most beautiful love stories of our time. Mitch Sanderson, District Attorney, and Magdalena Serida, refugee from war-torn Chechnya, come to life through Ruth Logan Herne’s words. The story of their individual pasts–the strength, the wisdom–gained even through heartache is masterfully woven with their sweet, gentle love story of the present.
Lena escaped Chechnya with her little sister, Anna. Anna is a delightful five year old who sees the world through wide eyes of innocence and excitement. I wanted to “bring her home with me.”
I have read most, if not all, of Ruth Logan Herne’s books and enjoyed them all. But Refuge of the Heart wrapped itself around my heart and captivated my soul. It is one of the few books in my collection of hundreds of books that I will read over and over again.
If you can read only one book for the remainder of this year, Refuge of the Heart is that book. It will wrap itself around your heart and captivate your soul!
