*My Stubborn Heart* A blog tour!

This review is for the debut novel "My Stubborn Heart" by Becky Wade.

I absolutely love finding new authors to read that have tremendous talent and Becky Wade is just such an author!
I love this story because not only does it use at least two generations of family together it weaves a wonderful tale of life, death, pain, redemption and grace.
Becky brings her characters to life with poignancy. The opening of the book was quite unique and immediately peaked my interest in the story. It was almost like the beginning of a fairy tale and was sure to be a charming story I thought. I do, however, hesitate to stick with my charming thought as it almost seems too trivial of  a word to use when, the wonderful author, Becky, manages to bring such depth and feeling to their lives and stories. She truly does an amazing job of weaving human characteristics into this story and gives you a glimpse into how different people deal with loss and pain while maintaining a thread of hope for something better to come for them.

Kate Donovan has walked through the past months in a lackluster daze. She does her job as a social worker well but really she is only going through the motions.
A request from her grandmother, for Kate to take a three month hiatus from her 9-5 and accompany her to her old hometown of Redbud, Pennsylvania to help restore the old family home, she jumps at the opportunity to escape her doldrums.
She is tired, lonely and depressed. At 31 she was sure God had her spouse out there for her and has prayed faithfully for him since she was young but still finds herself single wondering if he will ever appear.
Then Kate meets Matt Jarreau who is the hunky carpenter her grandmother hired to help them re-do the house.

Unsure of why, but knowing with a strong fact that she feels this way, Kate senses a deep and guarded sadness to Matt. Feeling attracted but waving it away by proclaiming him to attractive for her, she instead determines to pull Matt out of his shell and befriend him. Kate and her grandmother set out to do just that very thing and feel sure that they can succeed.

Could God be finally answering Kate's long uttered prayers or is Matt just in her path so she can help him along the rode to finally healing from his traumatic past?

I wholeheartedly recommend that you pick up this debut novel and read it for yourself! I think that you will find yourself sucked into the story and just as eager as I was to find out what happens to these very likable characters!
