Loving Helen is the second in the Hearthfire series and is a companion story to Saving Grace where we get younger sister, Helen’s viewpoint. This novel does not start where Saving Grace leaves off, but rather has a parallel story which I found very interesting. I quite liked Helen as she is really completely different than her sister. Not as bold or scheming, Helen is much more of a gentler, quieter nature. Helen starts off by trying to get Samuel Preston to notice her and perhaps offer for her hand in marriage, however she comes to the conclusion that he is still very much in love with his late wife. That is until she unwittingly sees him and her sister together and witnesses his affection and obvious feelings for Grace. Just like in Saving Grace, we have a slow building love story and we are shown a great deal of character growth over the time given in the story. This is a very romantic and tender read and not only that, but it is a clean read as well. The ending was perfect and I look forward to the story of their brother, Christopher. I received an e-copy for an honest review and the opinions are my own.
