it was amazing

A fantastic read! Sydney-sider Emily Madden’s newest release, Heart of the Cross, is stealing hearts across Australia, with rich, relatable characters and well-woven plots. The dual timeline tale opens in Ireland before moving to the bustling Kings Cross district in Sydney, where lead character Rosie Hart finds herself in strife. Neither her husband or her new life in Australia match her expectations, and she soon discovers her flamboyant neighbours care for her more than the man she married.

The novel skips between Rosie’s point of view and the present-day predicaments of her granddaughter, Brianna Hart. I loved how Emily folded in pieces of Maggie’s story (Rosie’s daughter) in the final third of the book. Heart of the Cross was released by Harlequin Mira in late August and is an engaging read filled with heart-felt characters, mystery, romance and triumph. As featured on the Kiss & Tell with Maya Linnell blog for Romance Writers Australia.
