Even though they have everything they could possibly want, Thomas cannot help but feel empty and confused.
His family is surrounded by workers, workers in the fields and around the house, maintaining the land. These workers have been a part of Thomas’ life forever but he cannot help but feel it is wrong because these workers are actually slaves…..and one of them, Caroline, has captured his heart. Thomas feel in love with Caroline when they were young and her mother would watch the two of them as she carried on her duties in the house. To the world this feeling of love between Thomas and Caroline is wrong because Thomas is white and Caroline is black.

Follow Thomas in the hardest journey he will even face. It will surprise the reader to see where it goes and who goes with him….. We can only HOPE Thomas gets his happily even after.
“Our Hearts are Blind is not only a love story, it is a story about devotion and commitment, it is a story about conflict, it is a story about relationships and the bond between family.”
About the Author
Heidi Sprouse is a resident of historic Johnstown in upstate NY and went to college at St. Rose in Albany.
Heidi started her journey to becoming an author when she was just a child. She would practice creative writing with her friends and continued to write on through college. It wasn’t until her early thirties, after her father passed away, that she began seriously penning words with the intent to write books. As an author, Heidi opens a window into her worlds of sweet romances, historical fiction, and suspense thrillers. She’s always in search of the finding the extraordinary within the ordinary; writing about strong men with old-fashioned values and the women who pick them up when they fall.
When she isn’t writing, she adores spending time with her husband Jim, her son Patrick and her furry canine kids. She also has a rewarding career as a Pre-K teacher.
Heidi has a long list of titles credited to her name. We hope that this month you’ll check out her latest endeavor, Walking with Ghosts on Ward’s Pond available for preorder or for direct purchase on July 2nd.
