My favorite quotes from book:

  • Tell me about your salvation in Christ, Seth. I don't think I've heard it before.
  • Well I think I was about six when I started to ask questions about Jesus
  • When I was younger, I thought that I could do things on my own and find success. What I misunderstood was that success without the blessing of God didn't bring fulfillment.
  • Well I know that I never felt accepted for who I was until I accepted Jesus.

My Overview: What happens when your world is turned upside down and everything you hoped & dreamed for is shattered & destoryed in an instant? Andrea Hatfield finds herself in such a situation & wonders if she can ever measure up to being who God has called her to be. Weeks away from marrying the man she is in love with, everything falls apart. Now determined to pick up the pieces of her broken heart & move forward, Andrea finds herself wondering what is God's plan for her life? And Does this change the way the God feels about her?

 However Andrea will discover that no matter what circustances or situations happen in life, God's plan always remains the same. Seth Anderson, the new associate pastor,  is about to enter Andrea's life! Will Andrea allow herself to be forgiven of her past, or will she allow her past to overshadow the future that God has planned for her?


My Thoughts & Comments: I am always searching for books to read & review that are Chrisitan Fiction or Non-Fiction that tell wonderful stories without using foul language or describing explicit scenes. I look for characters that are real and life like & draw you into their situation! Characters that know that without Gods hand upon their lives they are destined to fail. In this story, Her Heart's Desire, I could feel the struggle that Andrea was going through and how she desperately wanted to be a faithful woman of God.

 I loved that way that the author portrayed the characters as real, with real problems and gave them the courage to ask God to help them to face their situations. This is a story that starts out with heart break and carries you through the redemptive healing grace of God in each character it touches. Andrea Hatfield will become a real person to you & Seth Anderson will give you new hope in following after & never giving up on your heart's desire!

Note: This book review only reflects my opinions and thoughts! My desire in writing this book review is for those that want to read a story about how God works in people's lives & restores and redeems them. This book review was written because I wanted to share with others what I enjoyed & gleaned from reading this book. I did not receive this book through a book blogging program. If you are looking for a story of romance & God's abiblity to heal broken hearts & show His mercy and grace, then you'll find this book an enjoyable read! This book also had no foul language. Thank you Amie for a wonderful read!
