A Decision of the Heart

“He’s the epitome of all I didn’t want in a husband!”

1824 – Ypsilanti, Michigan Territory

Feisty and daring, Elizabeth Somers thrives on adventure. When tragedy strikes and she’s stranded with a broken ankle in the midst of a raging snowstorm, her carefree existence comes to an abrupt halt. An abominable snow-covered man rescues her from an icy grave, taking her to an abandoned cabin to wait out the storm. Elizabeth’s reputation is called into question once the small-town gossips get wind of their stay. Her life spins out of control. She’s powerless to stop it…

“Elizabeth, your mother and I have discussed this and agree. The only way to stop the rumors is for you to marry right away.”
She paled instantly, horrified by her father’s words. How could he even suggest such a thing?
An emphatic “No!” was her enraged reply.“
You’ll be married tonight, Elizabeth.”
Not tonight! I can’t marry him tonight!

A Decision of the Heart is not just a moving story of faith rising above suffering, slander, and life’s circumstances, it’s about a tender love that begins with a decision – A Decision of the Heart.

DONNA RHINE, having experienced firsthand the impact creative writing can have on an individual, is compelled to write. Whether she is creating novels, testimonials, memory booklets, or sketches for the drama team and other ministries, sharing her passion for writing is a huge part of her spiritual journey, drawing her ever closer to her Heavenly Father, the dearest friend she has ever known.

Donna resides in Michigan with Stephen, her cherished husband of thirty years, their son Joshua, dogs Cleopatra and Ebenezer, and turtles Spike and Spark. Their three daughters live close by with their husbands and Rhine's twelve grandchildren.

To God be the glory for the things He has done, is doing, and will do through this servant… Donna Rhine welcomes comments from her readers. She can be reached through her email at:

“Donna Rhine is an artist who colors her canvas with words. In A Decision of the Heart, she takes the reader back in time with a wonderfully compelling story of life and love. It’s impossible not to be drawn into the saga of the trials and struggles of a young couple in a very different and diffi cult time, sprinkled with the non-changing grace of the Lord. One can only hope that there will be many further offerings in the Michigan Chronicles series.”
-Rocky Barra, Pastor of Tri-City Christian Church, Canton, Michigan

“This story of mine is kind of like a rainbow. Colorful lines leading somewhere and nowhere, where does it begin and when does it end.” Jimmy Fitzsimons

Jimmy Fitzsimons is 15-years old and questions many things, including heaven. He loves baseball and his mother, but after her sudden death, he questions even more things.

Then four months later, on the night of the great mystery, Jimmy is given last rites and soon after pronounced dead from wounds he suffers in a fire. He awakens in the afterlife, where someone is waiting for him.

Patiently Waiting

Karenna is every woman. She has faced and overcome many obstacles in her life; from financial struggles, returning to school later in life, to raising three children as a single mother, as well as the day to day struggle of just keeping it all together. She is doing what she can, to take care of her kids and try to get a little pleasure out of life along the way. But what she longed for was something more. Someone to love her, support her and to treat her like Boaz treated Ruth, a couple she had read about in The Bible. But up until now every relationship she had, had fell short of her hopes and dreams. Then she had an encounter with God and everything changed. This experience revealed to her, that she was living for herself and not God and by living for herself she was missing what God had for her. She now must face the task of relearning who she is. What she needs, verses what she thought she wanted.

Her encounter with God left an aroma on her that got the attention of Kasey Maverick, a handsome, middle-aged man that seemed out of her league—socially, emotionally, financially and spiritually. But she knew there was something special about him, and he was her Boaz. But in order for her to be prepared for her God-given mate, the residue of her past; the rape, promiscuity, depression, low self-esteem and the feelings of unworthiness had to be washed away. All she could do was wait and submit to the work God was doing in her. The waiting taught her patience, and patience built an endurance to handle just about anything that life through her way. It also taught her that anything is possible with God, and when you put God first in your life everything else that is your heart’s desire would follow— including her Boaz.
