Comments Beloved

  • Heidi Robbins (Heidi Reads...)

    The premise was interesting the book, however, was not. I really enjoyed the first two in the series so it was a let-down to not connect with the characters in this final book. There are flashbacks to the past throughout the story, but the basic content of the flashbacks had already been explained in the present-day text, so I felt it was repetitive and slowed the story down in a major way. It also brought Tyson's selfishness and indiscretions into the limelight, as well as Diana's hurt and role [...]


  • Rissi

    Coming across unusual premises is rare. When you’ve read as many books in one genre as it feels like I have (not that I’m complaining, mind you), so many of the plots seem to resemble each other. This last novel in Robin Lee Hatcher’s most recent trilogy was actually a different concept and that made it special. Diana has had a tough childhood. Orphaned at only six, she along with her two siblings were put on the orphan train west. Unlike her siblings, Diana was adopted by a loving couple [...]


  • Barbara Shelton

    Not having read the first two books in “Where the Heart Lives” series, I was a bit at a disadvantage as to their stories being connected or related to the characters in Beloved. However that didn’t diminish my interest and enjoyment of this skillfully orchestrated tale of Diana Brennan Applegate and Tyson Applegate’s awkward twist of the unexpected. Ms Hatcher wrote a whopping shock wave in the first few lines that hooked my curiosity without a doubt. Diana Applegate and Brook Calhoun we [...]


  • Bethany

    This was the first book I've ever read by Robin Lee Hatcher, and though it wasn't a huge favorite for me, I did enjoy it and would consider it a nice, quick, one-time read.Being that this was the first book I've read by Robin Lee Hatcher, I really didn't know how much I would enjoy Beloved. However after reading it, I'm glad I was able to, and enjoyed the story. This book was very unique to me, because unlike most romance novels that focus on how the two people meet, this book was all about this [...]

  • Suzie

    I was introduced to Robin Lee Hatcher about 20 years ago when I was working in a Christian book store part time while in college. I picked up "The Forgiving Hour" and have been reading this author's books ever since. Although, admittedly, I've missed some books along the years (but that's just reason for me to go through her catalog and load up on more books). I was not disappointed with Hatcher's newest book, "Beloved".Diana Applegate is ready to move on with her life. She has had many trials i [...]


  • Shantelle

    Beloved was a simple, sweet, and thoughtful story. It didn't stretch my brain so much just an enjoyable read! Robin Lee Hatcher seems to mostly write books like that; stories that call you back and make it easy for you to open them up and keep reading! :)Beloved is a third installment in the Where the Heart Lives series, coming after Belonging and Betrayal. I actually haven't read Betrayal, but that fact didn't seem to mess up the story any for me. So a young woman was carelessly abandoned by he [...]


  • Tima

    Diana's life has been a strange mix of ups and downs. She was orphaned at six years old and sent on the orphan train. Loving parents adopted her and gave her a new life. While still a teenager Diana fell in love with Tyson Applegate, the son of a very wealthy and influential man. But it isn't long before Diana finds out that Tyson married her to make his father angry and gain control of his inheritance. She is soon abandoned as Tyson leaves with no intention of returning. Years later, thinking h [...]


  • Andi

    Robin begins this book with a BANG! Diana and Brook are getting ready to announce their engagement and in walks Diana's DEAD husband, Tyson Applegate. This halts the engagement, and Tyson wants a chance to win her heart back. He has traveled the world, and has come to know Christ and he wants to prove to Diana that he is a changed man. Since I live in Idaho, where Robin staged this book, it was fun to read about Boise in that time period. This book is so good. For me, it was like a modern Prodig [...]


  • Margaret

    I found the story very interesting and enjoyed reading how both Diana and Tyson had done a lot of growing up proving that mature love can be so powerful. What seemed like a selfish act on Tyson's part to have Diana act as a loving wife was really his way of wanting her to see how much he had changed. It is a sad fact but sometimes we need to go through some really hard times to finally see that God has been calling us to him. I can relate to this story since I myself went through a lot of pain w [...]


  • Joy

    Diana Applegate was abandoned by her husband, Tyson, years ago and believes he is dead. She's ready to remarry and move on with her life when suddenly he shows up at her engagement dinner wanting to reunite and show her he is a changed man. He also wants to run for the Senate and needs her. She agrees to stay with him until the race is over and then wants her freedom.This is a cute story with such likeable characters. Hatcher is talented and brings a wonderful story of love and forgiveness. This [...]


  • Kimberly

    Loved this series and was pleased with the conclusion. Beloved gives an insightfulness to being abandoned and learning to trust again. Made me sad and slightly uncomfortable with some circumstances, but was beautifully redeeming. This book has one of the best, catches your attention, opening sentences for any first chapter, ever!


  • Ak

    As much as I enjoy most of Robin Lee Hatcher's stories, I was disappointed in Beloved.I absolutely loved the first book of this series Belonging. The second book of this series,Betrayal was fine, but not up to the level of Belonging.


  • Susan

    Well, this series just got worse as it went along. I read a half dozen chapters before I gave up and skipped to the end. Even at the end it was lame.


  • Katie

    Really slow, no character development


  • Ruth

    I liked the first two books in this series better.


  • Rachel

    This was such a sweet story between two people who had to learn how to trust in God to mend their marriage.


  • Christie Lovvorn

    The last in Hatcher's "Where the Heart Lives" series, Beloved tells the story of the youngest Brennan sibling, Diana whose husband deserted her and is believed dead. He returns the night on which she and Brook Calhoun intend to announce their engagement. Like Betrayal, this book tackles hard issues such as spousal abandonment, forgiveness and reconciliation. One criticism I had was the flashbacks which at times detracted from the story and the "villain" plotline was slightly grating and distract [...]


  • Anneliese Dalaba

    Tyson married Diana to spite his father and gain his independence. Diana married him because she truly loved him and knew he felt the same--but she soon realized she was wrong. When he left her and never returned, everyone presumed him to be dead. At Diana's engagement dinner, Tyson showed up again--after 7 years--claiming to be a changed man from the selfish man he'd been. He wants a second chance.The characters are well developed. I felt the emotions of betrayal myself as I read this book. I u [...]


  • Ruth Jessen

    Beloved - the redemption storyThis last sibling of the Brennan siblings has one of the stronger redemption themes. Love separated, found, and rebuilt. And the books can be read out of order, they don't connect story/characterwise until the epilogue.

    Characters: Tyson, DianaSetting: Boise, ID 1900Likeable characters, good story about love and forgiveness. It was hard to put down. I love that the little boy, Ned, was in the story.


  • Kathleen (Kat) Smith

    "Boise City, IdahoMay 1900, To say the least, it was inconsiderate of Diana's almost-dead husband to show up at her engagement party. Conversations around the dinner table in the Calhoun dining room fell silent as guests began to notice the tall, dashing stranger standing in the doorway, his gaze fixed on Diana Applegate. He wore formal evening attire, as if he too had been invited to the festivities. But this was no guest. Brook Calhoun, Diana's soon-to-be finacè, leaned toward her. "Who is he [...]


  • Wanda

    An easy, relaxed read with a blend of history and romance. The premise of the story captivated me throughout. The storyline has a strong message of forgiveness with religious overtones.1881-Diana was one of many orphaned children traveling west on a train, looking for families to take them in and give them homes. She was one of the lucky ones to find a home with the Fishers. She was loved and adored by them.The years go by and Diana becomes a young bride and marries Tyson Applegate, son of a min [...]
