Love’s Sunrise by Dorothy Wiley is the second book in the historical romance series Wilderness Hearts. This is a book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of adults and young adults (thirteen and up) who have enjoyed the Wilderness Hearts series, and lovers of historical romance. Gabe McGrath is a man who has secured the title to his land in the hills of frontier Kentucky in 1806, but carries the heavy burden of grief from his past. Gabe’s life is forever altered when a violent storm drives him to seek shelter at the home of his neighbor. While sheltering with the cattleman, Gabe meets the man’s beautiful daughter, Martha Wyllie, and feels an instant attraction. Martha is immediately attracted to her handsome neighbor, but an old promise that she has kept secret holds her back from acting on the mutual attraction. Will Martha Wyllie hold true to her promise or will she live in the now and give her heart to Gabe McGrath?

Love’s Sunrise by Dorothy Wiley was a beautifully written romance that was historically accurate. The author’s use of figurative language was perfectly balanced and her use of imagery allowed me to create a vivid picture in my head that followed the story line. I loved how the author created realistic interactions between Martha Wyllie and Gabe McGrath that allowed their feelings to develop in a natural manner, without feeling too much like fairy tale love at first sight. While I liked both of the main characters, Martha was definitely my favorite. I just really liked how she was a strong woman and not a scared damsel. Overall, I enjoyed reading about Martha and Gabe's romance and I enjoyed the historical accuracy of the novel.
