Ö The Heart of a Vicar (The Jonquil Brothers #6) ñ Download by ì Sarah M. Eden Holy Harry finally gets his story told, and what a story it is Harold Jonquil is a vicar like everyone knew he would be, but he s not THE vicar he imagined he be or wants to be He doesn t think he can be himself and a vicar at the same time what would the parishioners think if they knew of his unvicarly hobbies of rock climbing and knowing Irish drinking songs Thank goodness Sarah Sarvol comes back into Harry s life Being an American she isn t as formal, and upon her first visit to church she tells Harry she had expected More of the vicar you ought to be , and challenges him to see who is better at vicaring Sarah also explains that the quote Harry often says to himself, Act well your part there all the honor lies , doesn t mean Act well a part or a part as defined by others I loved seeing Harry change from the stiff, almost aloof vicar to on Whenever a new book written by Sarah Eden comes out it immediately goes on my list to read She writes a book that appeals to me and that I enjoy.
Harry Jonquil has always been teased about his desire to become a vicar His brothers refer to him as Holy Harry He tries to live up to the role he has chosen, losing himself in the process Years ago the woman that he cared for walked out of his life, he helped the process by pushing her away She is back and causing him all kinds of turmoil She sees that Harry has lost himself in his calling and challenges him to become a better vicar.
This book is fun I love the Jonquil brothers and getting to know each of them Harry has been a bit of a mystery in the other books He stands apart and alone He s just as interesting as his brothers but has suppressed his personality Sarah brings out the best in him Like I said, this bo Young Love Is All Too Fleeting, As Harold Jonquil Painfully Discovered Years Ago When Sarah Sarvol, The Niece Of A Neighboring Landowner, Captured His Heart After An Idyllic Few Weeks In The Throes Of Blossoming Love, Reality Intervened They Could Have No Future Following Their Disastrous Parting, Harold Attempted To Push Aside Thoughts Of Love And Regret, But Sarah Has Never Left His Heart Now, Years Later, He Has Achieved His Lifelong Aspiration Of Becoming The Local Vicar However, The Role Proves Difficult Than He Imagined He Feels Hollow And Uninspired Until The Most Important Person In His Past Returns, Challenging Him As No One Ever HasWhen Sarah S Ailing Uncle Summons Her Back To The Family Estate In England, There Is Only One Person From Her Past She Is Reluctant To See Again Harold Jonquil, The Only Man Who Has Ever Claimed Her Heart But When She Comes Face To Face With Her Former Beau, She Hardly Recognizes The Aloof And Dull Man Before Her She Is Determined To Help Harold Rediscover The Passion He Once Felt Toward His Chosen Profession Soon, Despite Their Exasperation With Each Other, They Cannot Deny The Stirring Of Feelings Long Buried But Is It Too Late For Second Chances I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Netgalley.
This was a clean regent romance story Although it was book number 6 in series, it was my first book from this author.
Second chance story I felt bad for hero he did feel loved, appreciated by his family, his brothers only were laughing at him all the time And this man was kind and shy one, he didnt fight his family back Sometimes i felt like hi was a weak person He wasnt secure in himself I wish he was strong.
Maybe its miI liked this heroine a lot, although she was through a lot of bad things, she didnt lost her inner light and kindness.
Safe read No sex scenes I d recomend it to teens.
We finally got Harry s story He s been the quiet Jonquil brother in the series and we haven t known much about him other than he s a vicar and he loves his family His brothers tease him mercilessly Holy Harry and we now know he doesn t like it In this story we see his interests, his problems, his aspirations, but he keeps them to himself, thinking he has to act properly at all times as an example to his parishioners He s at ease with his housekeeper than his family, but slowly he opens up and becomes emotionally available Part of this is due to Sarah Sorvel s return from America They were friends and had feelings for each other before she left 6 years prior, and finds him very different from the person she knew Little by little, Harry s fear of disappointing everyone gives way to confidence and he rises to the occasion than once the escape scene and the 3 First, let s talk about this cover I love it and it s one of my all time favorites I m funny about covers and I m sick of seeing couples embrace and doing other things on every other cover these days As some of you know I m a big fan of JAFF Jane Austen Fan Fiction and this was similar in a lot of ways mixed in with Downton Abby I can t wait to get my hand on the other books in this series They can be read separate because that s what I m doing Things I loved The writing The main characters The seven brothers I will have to say that parts of it dragged for me but I fell in love with this family This was a NETGALLEY gift and all opinions are my own Happy Reading I was so happy to visit the Jonquils again So happy, in fact, that I m now going back and rereading all the previous books in the series even though I ve read at least a few of them twice alreadyHarry s book did not disappoint I definitely wondered how the author would bring him around turn him into a likable character after he seemed so somber and staunch in past books This one gave us an entirely different perspective on him The heroine was a delight and the romance was sweet and enjoyable Now I just have to endure the wait until Charlie s book
5 starsSarah Eden is one of my very favorite authors and I have been anxiously awaiting her new novel, The Heart of a Vicar It is Harry s story in the Jonquil saga and as an added perk, we get to see all of our favorite Jonquil brothers in this novel Harry has always thought he d be a vicar and his family even nicknamed him Holy Harry at a young age But the calling isn t all he expected and he worries constantly that he is falling short When the only woman he s ever loved, Sarah Sarvol, returns to the neighborhood, Harry is reminded even forcefully of what he had once imagined his life to be and how different it has turned out He goes on a journey of self discovery and with it comes the renewed hope of love Can he find himself in time to win Sarah s heart once This was a contemplative book about expectations and realities Harry has been expected to I don t think I ve ever met a Sarah Eden book I didn t love I was so happy to be back with the Jonquil family, this time with the focus on Harold This family is large and full of personality The Jonquil brothers are an interesting lot each struggling in their own way, teasing and torturing each other but coming together in a strong way when the needs arise I think that pretty much sums up familial dynamics for a lot of us It makes it easy to love these people and root for their happiness Each book may focus on one brother in this family but in each book, they are all present in some way I love that they never go away but we see a continuation of their stories in each new book that comes our way Harold is described by his sister in law as a
