Episode 0112: Interview with Jennifer Delamere, author of THE HEART’S APPEAL

Posted on July 4th, 2018

The Fresh Fiction Podcast is brought to you by REVELL BOOKS and BETHANY HOUSE, publishers of the new book THE HEART'S APPEAL by Jennifer Delamere.


Jennifer wrote a strong-willed woman doctor at the end of the 19th Century in THE HEART’S APPEAL, so of course I had to chat with her about creating this impressive woman. We also discussed the research she did in Bristol, England for the London Beginnings trilogy and why rewatching THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER is inspiring ideas for a new series.


We’re still growing, so please help us out by subscribing and rating the podcast, leaving a comment, or even just sharing it on social media. You can find us on twitter, Instagram, and on Facebook. I’ll be back next time with something new to watch, read, and listen to!


THE HEART'S APPEAL by Jennifer Delamere


London Beginnings #2

The Heart's Appeal

Julia Bernay has come to London to become a doctor--a glorious new opportunity for women during the reign of Victoria. When she witnesses a serious accident, her quick actions save the life of barrister Michael Stephenson. He rose above his family's stigma, but can he rise to the challenge of the fiercely independent woman who has swept into his life?


Strong-minded and independent Julia Bernay comes to London to study medicine and become a doctor--a profession that has only just opened up to women. She witnesses a serious accident, and through her quick actions saves the life of an ambitious young barrister named Michael Stephenson.


Coming from a family that long ago lost its money and its respectability, Michael Stephenson has achieved what many would have thought was impossible. Hard work and an aptitude for the law have enabled him to rise above his family's stigma and set him on the path to wealth and recognition. But his well-laid plans are upended when the accident brings Julia into his life.


Michael soon discovers he's met a woman every bit as stubborn and determined to make her mark on the world as he is. Sparks fly--but will they find common ground?
