I really enjoyed this story, because it made me think about what it takes to have a good relationship with others and with God. Some may say this story was a tear-jerker, but it is also one of spiritual and emotional healing. I read Gift From the Heart because I enjoyed the first book in the Sisters and Brides series, and now I am hoping for a chance to read the third book soon.
This is I think the first in a three book series about three sisters who have lost their aunt. In her will, she stipulates that the three sisters cannot claim their inheritance until they finish six months of service work in various locations in the U.S. Also, it so happens that each sister has a troubled man that they will be working in close contact with for the entirety of the six months. "Gift from the Heart" is Clare's story, and she must work as a nanny, free, for Doctor Adam Wright, watch ...more

Clare's inheritance is pending until she becomes a nanny for a young girl in North Carolina for six months. There she finds a handsome doctor and a new beginning.
This was a depressing book. I understand that people have to go through some very hard times, and that it takes time to heal from them. I also understand that a romance novel generally doesn't keep this much depressing emotional baggage through the entire book. I seriously was almost crying reading this book. Which goes to show that it is well written, but I felt like it dragged on for too long without any other action. It was also a little preachy to me, but that just comes with Christian roman ...more
LI--another regarding Aunt Jo's will. Clare has to be a nanny, falls in love.
After I read the first book in this series I was excited to read the second. I really enjoyed this book. I would have gave it 4 stars instead of 3 if Clare's background had been a little less tragic. I read the love inspired series because I like uplifting reading escapes and Clare's background was really depressing to read.
Two-haiku review:

She must be nanny
For doctor's problem daughter
To inherit cash

Book two of series
Characters bring deja vu
A lot like first book
Heartwarming book about two people overcoming tragedy in their lives and relying heavily in their faith in God to be able to go on.
simplistic and probably unrealistic story, but very enjoyable.
