When Hugo Davidson is offered the chance to help a school in the cozy community of Crab Orchard, Kentucky, he has no idea that his arrival may upset the one-room teacher’s living and risk his carefully mended heart.

Leah Waters, jilted by her fiance six years prior, has carved out a respectable existence. But when a British educator moves to town, she instantly closes her heart to possibilities and her mother’s match-making shenanigans. But at what cost? Can she reconcile her growing feelings and love again? Or will the school board’s plans derail everything?

Danielle’s Review

Cozy. Autumn. Historical romance. Novella. Of Hearts and Home by Ann Elizabeth Fryer checks every one of these boxes. Of Hearts and Home is part of her Hearts Unlocked series. I had the privilege of reading an early copy and read the whole story in a single Sunday afternoon. It was simply delightful.

The characters were great; I was rooting for Leah the whole time. I loved the setting and the tone. The perfect length, too. Yes, this was one of my favorite novellas of the year. I highly recommend grabbing yourself a copy!


I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
