A heart divided, by Kathleen Morgan. The Caldwells and Wainwrights have been fueding for years, ever since the father of the Wainwright family scammed land from the father of the Caldwell family through a deck of cards. Not willing to sit back any longer and gaining the courage through alchohol the Caldwell father takes his shot gun to the Wainwright property to settle it! Not intending to actually use it on anyone, but being drunk, accidently fires his weapon wounding a young boy and sending the mother into labour. Ultimately ending her life as well during the stressful birthing process. Now years later their children are all grown up and the Caldwells know very well of how horrible the Wainwrights are! Besides that they have a sick younger brother to take care of and no money to do so. So the father devises a plan that has Sarah trying to suduce the Wainwright son while her brothers and father steal their money! But it catches back up with them when the Wainwright son (cole) spots Sarah while out buying supplies and takes her under a citizens arrest until the sherriff gets back in town. Only what they didn't expect was to start falling for each other after so many years of hate!
This book is on the fence for me, while I enjoyed the story and the lesson behind it on the other hand I didn't really care for Sarah's character. I wanted her to stand up for herself and fight and she seemed to rather do the opposite for most of the book. So thats why I'm on the fence lol, it was good I just didn't like one of the characters! So you'll have to read it and decide for yourself! It is really well written!
