    Young love finds a second chance....

    Growing up in a small town can be a wonderful thing. Knowing all of your neighbors, and having the sense of community provides the residents with comfort and stability. One the flip side, small town life can also be brutal. Escaping the stigma of where you live or the clothes you wear can be a burden that lasts a lifetime. Small town life wasn’t always kind to Ruby Dawson. Growing up in a trailer park came with ridicule from her classmates. A torment that would drive Ruby to get out of town the moment she graduated high school. It was a perfect plan, excel in school and then head to a college far from home. The only problem with this plan was the lack of planning on Ruby’s part during an end of the year party that she would never forget. Plans change and Ruby’s quest to get out of her hometown is nothing but a fleeting memory. Years have passed since that graduation party, and Ruby has handled the changes in her life in stride. No one has ever figured out the secret that Ruby has shielded with her heart, even though the reality is staring them in the face. Content with her life, Ruby finds a blast from the past can turn her whole world upside down. After seven years away from town, Levi Cole returns to the place he once called home. With a family fortune that is easily at his disposal, Levi never understood Ruby’s desire to avoid him at all costs. Even though the two have danced around an attraction since high school, Ruby was always reluctant to believe that someone from the ‘other side of the tracks’ could possibly be interested in her. Now – Levi is back in town and plans on making this his home once again. Trailer Park Heart is the latest book in the Rachel Higginson collection. It is a very realistic story that deals with our differences in social status and how it affects our outlook on life. Ruby has never believed that she was worthy of anything beyond life in that trailer park she called home. Levi is the one person that is determined to make her see that she has so much to offer. A beautiful testament to overcoming the odds. While this book deals with judgments and the hardships that face so many people, it also is a beautiful love story. One that simply warmed my heart from the very first time Levi let his intentions be known. As the two navigate through this thing called life, the road blocks in their way seem to magnify. However – both realize that life is precious and can change on a dime. Giving hope to long lasting love and devotion. Trailer Park Heart is a beautiful look at love and finding the courage to face life’s adversities. It is realistic, hopeful, and a wonderful glimpse into a ‘real life’ romance that could be found anywhere around the world…..all you have to do is look.

    This is a fantastic, empowering story.

    I tell ya... these beautiful covers get me in trouble every time!! I can’t see one without wanting it and that includes the moment I saw Trailer Park Heart by Rachel Higginson. It helps that I’ve read several other Rachel Higginson books, so I know what I’m getting into. Ms. Higginson always writes an extremely unique story with fantastic characters and a well-paced plot. Not to mention a well-written story. I enjoyed the heck out of Ruby’s journey with her young son, Max. I’ve really been obsessed with single parent stories lately. And Trailer Park Heart really gives us a strong woman who is there for her child. I love the way this book read more as a woman’s fiction with romance added to it. It kind of broke down that myth that women need a man to be happy, to be complete. The man you choose in your life should add to it. He shouldn’t be for reason for life, he should enhance what you are you, especially when you’re a single parent. I think that was really my favorite part of this book. Ruby’s life has always been about protecting Max. It’s never been about her, which is fine when you have children, but you should still show your children how to live life. When Levi comes in to the story, Ruby learns to live again. Watching them is completely heartwarming and sweet. There’s trials and secrets hidden along the way but those all make this journey special. This is a fantastic, empowering story. I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

    loved it

    One night of reckless behavior had unforeseeable results. A life she had been ashamed of, hated to her core, wanted and planned to escape from. All her life she carried who she was and where she lived like a protective coat. It kept her covered and was her excuse for staying aloof. She was that girl. This author does stories of women who are strong and triumph and overcome their circumstances. We find out about her past and decisions by flashbacks, and fall in love with Max as the story unfolds. Fears are confronted, truths are told and the world still spins. We watch her grow up and come to terms with who she is and let loose the insecurities she used to keep people at bay. It's a great read with plenty of angst and introspection. Once she owns it. . . she accepts who she is and opens her trailer park heart to what was right in front of her all along.
