Notice I did not use a stock photo for My Stubborn Heart, by Becky Wade. I loved it so much that I took a picture and posted it on facebook as soon as I was done! I. loved. this. book. The main character, Kate (an Audrey Hepburn type, but with red hair), has been praying for her husband to be since the 4th grade. She is a romantic at heart and knows that God has a special man chosen for her. Or does he? At 31 she is beginning to wonder if the fairy tale ending is not what God had planned for her.
Kate and her grandmother travel to Redbud, Pennsylvania to renovate Chapel Bluff, her grandmother's childhood home. Chapel Bluff turns out to be more of an estate! I enjoyed exploring it and learning about it's transformation! The characters are all lovable and richly written. They came to life for me! Gran's friends are a hoot and have great story lines on their own. Velma (Weezer-like from Steel Magnolias) tells it like it is and had me laughing page after page. Gran is strong and clever and knows when to step in or stay out of the situation. Adored her. Matt Jarreau's (retired star hockey player) past is tormented and long suffering and I patiently (not!) waited for him to find peace and happiness in his life. I don't want to give away too much! I even found myself reading parts to my husband- and he liked it, too.:)
