An Awakened Heart by Jody Hedlund
New York City
“Stop prostituting yourselves and run to the loving Father who will embrace you with forgiveness.” Reverend Bedell’s voice rose above the sniffles and muffled weeping of the women crowded on trestle benches of Centre Street Chapel.
Every time I read a Jody Hedlund book, I realize it has been way too long since I last read a Jody Hedlund book! I love the way she weaves history and fiction together.
An Awakened Heart takes readers through the streets of the poorest immigrant neighborhoods and into the lives of those called to minister to them. I adore this story and I’m especially excited to find out where the orphan train series is going to take us!
