    Leanna had her whole life planned out, marry for love, go where your husband goes and have a great life. But things don?t go as planned and now Leanna is a widow, she is young and has to fend for herself. I have to admit I was drawn to Leanna she was easy to like and you felt for ...

    My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate Utah: Leanna?s Choice gives the very deceptive appearance of yet just another ?prairie bonnet? story. I mean, it has all the makings of it. Miners, Mormons, and schoolteachers. How cliche can you get? I began to regret requesting a review copy from...

    A story that begins with grief and guilt, then adds hate for a nationality, and you will wonder where you are, it could be anywhere in the early 1900?s. This story takes place in a mining town in Utah, and we are hit head on by people who decide that because some of the settlers are ...

    I have really been enjoying the My Heart Belongs series and Leanna?s Choice by Angie Dicken is the first novel I have read of hers. This is a story that runs deep with prejudice between Americans and the Greek immigrants. It seems this is a tired old sin that runs through history up ...

    ?Do you expect us to give up on our chosen life because of ignorance?? Angie Dicken?s novel My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah may be shining a spotlight on immigrant issues and prejudice in 1910 but it?s just as timely for today. People persecuted and segregated for no o...

    This book was a hard one to get through. Leanna never really made sense as a character, but it's actually the life philosophy of the characters that sunk this boat for me. Their favorite quote is "The only darkness is ignorance." If that were true, God wouldn't have sent a Savior as...

    Most romance novels have conflict?without it, there is no real story or a reason to keep reading. This particular book, however, has more than I thought the author could possibly resolve in fewer than 300 pages! Prejudice, familial expectations, and bittersweet baggage all conspire t...

    I do enjoy a historical romance and I learned so much about this time in history, the dangers of coal mining and the discrimination of immigrants. Family was very important, the miners jobs were hard and Castle Gate, Utah was a perfect setting for this story. Leanna was a special lady ...

    My feelings on this are if you really love someone then other ppl should just mind their business but of course I know that won't happen in a million years. As long as hate rules and separates cultures then Satan has won. As one lady in the story says "We are one, not divided" and a...
