My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade~~A Litfuse Publicity Group Book Review




My Review

My Stubborn Heart is the first novel that I have read by Becky Wade.

Overall I enjoyed the story. I found the characters to be very likeable, although at times, a little quirky. The problems were realistic, and at times seemed overwhelming to the characters, but they were solved in believable ways. The book also was humorous at times, as well as, heartbreaking. I liked the way Becky was able to make the characters pop off the page, and her scene description is impeccable.

There were some things I didn’t like, things that bothered me personally. I found the use of course language to be out of place in a Christian novel. I do realize that the author intended for the story to be as realistic as possible, but it didn’t suit my taste and I ended up skipping parts of conversations because of it.

Another thing that didn’t seem right, was the mention of yoga, as exercise. I am not going to be to elaborate here, but in my opinion it is not a God honoring activity. You may feel differently, that is something between you and God. Although I urge you to research its origins and make an informed decision.

Like I said earlier, I enjoyed the story; and I think that I would choose to read another book by Becky Wade if the opportunity arose.

I give My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade 4 out of 5 stars.


About the Book

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light...whether he likes it or not.

When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?


About Becky Wade


Becky-Wade2During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.

Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn't be more thrilled with it.

These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.

  1. I agree with you about the few "crude comments/remarks," they just seemed horribly misplaced even though they were not "graphic." Glad you enjoyed this one, too, Tammi - I truly enjoyed it and am already wondering about Wade's second novel. =)
