About the Book
Title: Heart of the Ocean
Author: Heather B. Moore
Release Date: January 2013
Publisher: Mirror Press, LLC
Genre: Paranormal Historical Fiction
I have reviewed many of Heather's books so it was a very interesting experience to review a book that was not written in the LDS Historical Fiction category. Heart of the Ocean is a historical fiction novel but it also contains elements of romance, mystery, and even paranormalcy (is that a word? :) It was definitely different than her other novels but written every bit as well as the rest.
I'm a huge fan of historical fiction so the time period that this book was set in really appealed to me. It was very interesting to read about the Puritan culture and their unique society and to see the contrast between them and the high society way of life that Eliza grew up in.
Eliza was a strong female character. She was brave and stood up for what she wanted, despite her family and society's disapproval. She was also courageous enough to find out the truth behind the ghost even though she was frightened and in danger.
I also loved the mystery elements of the story. I was definitely surprised at some of the twists and turns and liked how the story unfolded. Plus, the added supernatural factors helped create a suspenseful and eerie setting for it to all unravel.
Once again, Heather has created a well written, entertaining, and well researched novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to whatever genre Heather decides to write in next!
