A Heart at Home (Everlasting Heart Series) by Sara Barnard is the third book of the series. Sanderson, an Indian Agent is moved to California and his girlfriend Charlotte moves with him from Arkansas. She decides to follow her love. Charlotte and Sanderson meet some of the American West's notable personalities. They get to know about the conspiracies of the government, they also face the wrath of nature and endure a difficult pregnancy. After these hardships, they realize that home is where love is.

Those who enjoy reading Wild West stories will enjoy this book. The real characters of Wyatt Earp, Quanah Parker, and Mosses added to the historical angle of the story and made an interesting read. The love of Charlotte and Sanderson forms the backdrop of the whole story. The theme is action packed and that makes the story enjoyable and fast paced. The author makes the characters come alive with some expert writing and narration. The importance of love and its association with the building up of a home is executed well by the author and it is done very subtly and effectively.

Wild animals, natural calamities, the historical characters that Sanderson and Charlotte meet while staying in California, and the wilderness make the book very exciting. The love of Sanderson and Charlotte, the difficulties they endure, their strength and togetherness in facing hardships, and their love is described beautifully by the author. The combination of Western and romance works well here. Will Charlotte survive the hardships of the trail?
