Oh, Baby: Hearts Haven by Delia Latham is a tender and yet powerful romance where uncertainty and unbelief are both dispelled by an unexpected glimpse at the usually unseen. Dawni Manors has recently moved to Angel Falls, where, if you believe the stories, both love and angels reside. She has rented a cottage a few doors down from Gavin Sampson, a handsome cowboy. He is immediately taken with her, but she plans to keep her distance, regardless of his charm and good looks. A relationship is not on her agenda. When Dawni finds herself in a situation where she needs help, she goes to Gavin. As their relationship slowly develops, she begins to discover things that she never knew or believed possible. Can she really trust this man? Does God really exist and if He does, does He really love her? Why has He allowed bad things to happen to her and will He help her now? With the support of new friends and this godly man, Dawni's life is about to be changed forever, in more ways than one.
Yet another wonderful book from this author. Delia Latham gives us well thought out and well rounded characters that touch your heart. The author's mastery of descriptive language is wonderful. The story is moving, descriptive and powerful as we see the struggle in Dawni Manors lead her to enlightenment - from a life of abuse to a daughter of the King and the journey in between. Delia Latham's story is a romance, but it touches on other issues with just as much care; unwanted disabled children, abandonment, angels, and the ability to trust both God and man. Although not a long book, Delia Latham has filled it up with enough detail and emotions to satisfy.
