A dreamer. An artist. A woodcarver. For Cas, raised with seven brothers by the indomitable Miss Ethel, he reveled in being able to be himself.
And when Bianca moved into the house across the street, he had no idea his childhood friend would eventually become a young love, only to be taken away.
Years later, both on their own, Cas and Bianca discover that sometimes miracles can repeat themselves and second chances are possible.
A Heroes at Heart novel. These men, raised in the loving foster home by the benevolent Miss Ethel, discovered there lies a hero in all of us. Based loosely on the fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Scenes and language similar to what you would find in an R-rated movie.
I love Miss Ethel and her giants!
This is book 8 in the series and it features Cas and Bianca. This story is a heartwarming tale of a modern day version of Snow White. Cas is the last brother to find his HEA. Even though Bianca lived with her own father, she spent four years hanging out with Miss Ethel, Cas and what she named the seven giants. Sadly, Bianca moved away and did not see Cas for 12 years. Though their reunion is quick, it is not without its issues. I laughed and I cried. This story REALLY brought out the emotions in its readers. Get your tissue box ready!
This is such a perfect way to end the series. I’m sad to see it end and I’m so glad I got to read it. I wish all the lost kids out there could have their very own Miss Ethel. I adored her from the moment I met her. This is some of the most amazing writing from such a talented author. BRILLIANT and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED series that is so emotional and truly describes, over and over and in many different ways, what family really is.
Cas: Heroes at Heart is the final book in this wonderfully written series by the talented Maryann Jordan. This is a story about family, loss and love, it will definitely pull at your heartstrings make you smile or giggle at times and bring a tear or two other times. I was unable to put this book down it was such a wonderful story. Cas is a dreamer and an artist who has been loved and raised along side his seven brothers by the loving Miss Ethel. One day Cas is looking for some alone time but his time is interrupted by the adorable and energetic new neighbor Bianca. This is just the start to a very enjoyable read, I want to say so much more but I don't want to give any of this great story away. All I want to say is this was a sweet end to one of my favorite series. I hope you will enjoy this story as much as I did. If this is your first Heroes at Heart book I recommend you read the others in this series to get to know all the great characters. This is a mush read and a book you won't want to miss.
Beautiful series ending
It is bittersweet to come to the end of the Heroes at Heart series. Each story is a standalone with the common thread of a foster family lovingly lead by Miss Ethel and each loosely based on a fairy tale.
Cas is the last brother still single. He is quiet and hardworking. A mechanic by day but his true calling is in the gorgeous furniture he makes in his spare time.
“It seems like I spend a lot of my time looking back at the past. It’s only been recently that I started looking forward.”
...”But until I reached back and touched my past, I couldn’t move forward.”
Bianca travels back to the last place she felt happiness and rediscovers the family of brothers who befriended her.
“It only hurts if I let their arrows land on me.” Her lips curved into a slow smile and she lifted her head to stare at him again, “You’ve always been my shield. When you’re around, their arrows bounce off.”
Cas is an absolutely beautiful story. A second chance love story. It has all the elements that remind me why I read this genre!
