A Haven for Her Heart(Redemption's Light #1)


Kindle Edition

Published October 13th 2020

Susan Anne Mason

The first book in the new Redemption's Light series, A Haven for Her Heart

kept me reading to learn of Olivia's story.

Olivia is a young woman living in Canada in the late 1930's living at home with her parent's and siblings. After she divulges her pregnancy to her family her father is so upset saying she has shamed the family and kicks her out.


The book is based on the author's research of another young woman who

in the 1930's was pregnant and incarcerated.

The book was hard to read at times because of the unfairness of Olivia's treatment.

It was gritty and factual.

Olivia craves respectability but doesn't feel she'll ever deserve it because

of the mistakes she's made in the past.


Will she ever give herself a chance to let herself fall in love or will she

be held back by society's idea of the "ideal" woman?


Very thought provoking book that I enjoyed reading the author's insight

and I look forward to her next books in the series.

Homeless after being released from a women's reformatory in 1939

Toronto, Olivia Rosetti is taken in by an angel of mercy, Ruth Bennington. The two discover they share a painful past and together decide to open a maternity home for troubled women.


Despite the success of the home, Olivia is haunted by her inhumane treatment at the reformatory and the way her newborn son was taken from her. She feels undeserving of love--until she meets businessman Darius Reed. Although his attention makes her heart soar, he can never learn of her past.

Greek widower Darius Reed is determined to protect his daughter from the prejudice that killed her mother. He'll ensure her future by marrying a woman from a respected Toronto family. But when Darius meets Olivia, he's immediately drawn to her beauty and compassion.


Can love prove stronger than prejudice and past mistakes? Or will Olivia's secrets destroy any chance at a future together?
