I know there's a range of opinions about Christian romance novels. And I suppose most of them would be considered "twaddle" as they aren't anything incredibly deep or moving. But I've always had a fondness for a good Christian romance novel.

I like the idea of "happily ever after." I believe I'm living my "happily ever after" with my best friend and I have been for almost 20 years. I want my kids to know that their father and I consider our love a romance better than any in a book.

So I like reading about a happily ever after- especially in a book with some substance and realistic characters.

A Heart to Heal was one of those, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There were interesting characters- characters that weren't perfect by any means, characters that didn't have easy lives and predictable behavior. And the story was a sweet one- not deep and meaningful but sweet. There's also a bit of a spiritual emphasis, a reminder that God is in control of our lives and is taking care of us and bringing us to the place He wants us to be.

A Heart to Heal was a quick, easy read. It would make a great easy pleasure read. And it was very enjoyable and worth a read.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The "dare from a friend" to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom's Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.


ABOUT THE BOOK

The Courage To Hope.

Guidance counselor Heather Browning is desperate. She needs a mentor to help Simon, a disabled student who is struggling at Gordon Falls High School. Unfortunately, hotshot Max Jones is her only option. Confrontational and cavalier, Max uses his flashy persona to hide the bitterness he's felt since his life-changing accident. Perpetually cautious, Heather finds Max's bad-boy bravado as intriguing as it is infuriating. But as Heather and Max work together to build Simon's self-confidence, they begin to trust each other. Max has never been slow and careful with anything. Can he be gentle with Heather's heart?

Gordon Falls: Hearts ablaze in a small town.
