    1. Katherine on said:

      Everything is all wrong You have to stay when all you want is to leave, and I have to leave when all I want to do is stay Sometimes the quietest, slowest stories about the seemingly most simple things are the ones that tug at your heartstrings the most And this meditative, bittersweet tale of growing up fits that mark perfectly.Even though Lucy wasn t born there, she s felt at home in her little mountain community The wide open spaces, the closeness of the townsfolk, and the freedom to do as she [...]

      in the book there are two main characters named Jesse and Lucy.Jesse is a dreamer,a thinker,already thinking about his future and joining the navy.Lucy she is the complete opposite she cant picture her life away from the mountainside community where they live,or cant imagine saying goodbye to the ones she loves and the ones who care about her but forget there diffrences the two bestfriends already know there future isnt what they want.The year was 1820,Jesse who wanted to be in the navy his pare [...]

      I adore, adore this book It s a great book and I recommend for anyone to read regardless of age The story is about Lucy and Jesse and how their relationship jumps from one feeling into another feeling that it turns into a great frenzy Call me naive, but I still believe that true love can conquer all although I m saying this in regard of the relationship between Jesse and Lucy Jesse did love Lucy, but not as much as he love his freedom, his adventures, or himself I suppose his real love was an id [...]

    4. Chesca on said:

      When my friend recommended this book to me, I was dubious I mean, she practically shoved it into my hands and forced me to read it So I started reading it, just to get her off my back It wasn t long before I got hooked I brought it home with me and when I was finished reading it, I set it down on my desk Later that night, I was surprised to find that my sister had taken the book and was engrossed This was the first time I ever saw her interested in a book as she s not the bookworm type She liked [...]

    5. Rebekah on said:

      I love historical fiction and am not above a YA read, but this one left a little to be desired The characters make dumb decisions, but worse than that you don t care enough about them to worry about it It seems like the author vacationed on the mountain that is the setting for this book, and her priority was praising her vacation spot instead of fully developing her story.

    6. Ashley on said:

      some parts of this book were rather boring, and tooep by step Like, saying every detail on what she was doing But the story is beautiful, and the ending is a thrill.

    7. Samantha Copper on said:

      I literally could not put this book down I read it in one day The author did a great job of developing the characters and really making you feeling their emotions They were very relatable She sort of made you want to root for certain characters You want them to overcome their difficulties I cried a few times, especially during the Lucy Jessie episodes It was very descriptive The whole time it was like there was a movie playing along with the book.The historical aspect was very interesting as wel [...]

    8. Deborah on said:

      I picked up this book hesitantly, as someone who strongly dislikes romances but I love historical fiction and have read one of Duble s books before, so I took a chance on this one I m glad I did Easy to read and fast paced, this book gives a picture of life on the mountain without imposing modern views on the characters and shows that growing up means abandoning selfishness and learning to navigate the world for what it is.I don t want to say for risk of spoiling the story, but I will say that [...]

    9. Evelyn Saenz on said:

      Hearts of Ironby Kathleen Benner Duble is a comming of age story that takes place in Connecticut in 1820 Jesse and Lucy have always been best friends but now it s time for them to take on adult roles Jesse s father expects him to join the rest of the men in the village working in the furnace and forges, a dangerous and unpleasant place to work.Lucy s father expects her to get married The setting and the characters are interesting but I found the story to be rather bland I wanted the characters t [...]

    10. Patricia on said:

      This is an historical coming of age story which highlights the small window of time during which life revolved around the iron forge on Mt Riga in Connecticut Even though the author keeps the romance gentle, she allows some of the harsher realities of life in the 1840s, as well as the difficulty of making life choices, to be evidentd draws in the reader emotionallyt necessarily easy to do in such a quick read.It was highly recommended to me by a student who read it at least twice in one school y [...]

    11. Anna Motteler on said:

      At the beginning the book was really good because you were just starting to learn a lot about each character But as the story went on, everything started to rush together and that didn t flow well If the book were longer, I bet it would be better and attract a lot readers The ending was pretty easy to guess once things started coming together and I tend to like books that make you think .It was a cute read though.

    12. Melanie on said:

      Jesse and Lucy have been friends forever As they get older both must consider what they want to do with the rest of their lives Jesse dreams of joining the Navy However his father wants him to join the iron furnace where the majority of the men in town work Jesse wants no part of that.Lucy doesn t want to leave her small community ever She can t imagine why Jesse would want to leave But she also doesn t want to hold him back.A sweet story of young love and big decisions.

    13. Harisa Lagji on said:

      I read this book a long time ago, and I am digging up old books I read as a preteen teenager so I wanted to mark them on my while I read it.This book was deep for me at the time, with a bittersweet ending that left me very sad but thoughtful I really enjoyed this book and it was a good look into how growing up can mean different things for different peopled that s okay.

    14. Nalthani3 on said:

      All Lucy wants is her life to stay the way it always has but her father says she needs to be of a lady and get married, so she tries her best to not leave her beloved mountain then she discovers that her best friend is going to cause her problems as well so she really just has to make choices for other peoples sake not herself and really has to do things out of love.

    15. Funnessa on said:

      Hearts of Iron is my new favorite book I absolutely loved it I laughed throughout the book but towards the end I cried for 5minutes the was really sad Even though I loved Jesse I m glad that she ende up with Samuel Anyone who likes romance and historical fiction this is definetly the book for you If you end up liking it you may like The Sacrifice and Quest also by Kathleen Benner Duble.

    16. Jessamyn on said:

    22. Shelley on said:

      Sweet historical fiction, romantic but also somewhat bittersweet Really glad she ended up with the guy she did, although I wonder if the intended audience would agree

    23. Emily on said:

      I was very intrigued by the book s description but it definitely didn t meet my expectations There was too much detail in parts and the ending felt rushed and unresolved.

    24. Victoria Avis on said:
