Nothing 'foolish' about the story and its message!
March 27, 2012
Mercy me, where do I start?
Here I was picking this book and thinking it'd be another one of those okay love stories or whatever.. Ha! who was I kidding? This was no 'whatever' but rather 'writer, where on earth have you been??'
Stories that are deeply rooted in the The Truth are the BEST kind out there and in this one, readers get to dive in and stand in awe of God's great LOVE and come out of this refreshly satisfied. Can I give it six stars? Superbly well writen! (And funny too :) I guess the only thing 'foolish' about it all was me seriously considering squeezing myself into the story at one point. Give this a try, you won't be sorry! Now, where to for more adventures with these sweet lovebirds?
I was really excited to read this book as I had never read any of Susan May Warren's book. I love new authors and new books!
I really enjoyed this book, it was a "can't put it down" book. Susan May Warren did an excellent job at keeping the reader entertained and wondering "what is going to happen next". I liked how the book had many twists and turns and wasn't too predictable. I also liked that even in the midst of romance, Susan May Warren was able to bring in scriptual and Godly truth. The book has lots of great scripture references. My Foolish Heart is Book 4 of the Deep Haven series, and I will be going back to read the first 3 in this series!!
Issy Presley, a 20-something young woman who is doing her best to cope after a tragic car accident took the life of her mother in front of her eyes, and left her father, the beloved high-school football coach, paralyzed and living in the town's care center. One summer day a young man moves next door, Caleb Knight. He moves to Deep Haven with high hopes for the future of the struggling football program. Little does the town know though that their potential football coach is struggling to find a new life to lead after an accident in Iraq took his leg and many of those in his unit. Not too hard to see that a romance soon buds between Issy and Caleb as he helps her heal from her tragedy.
I definitely found myself giggling as the characters developed their relationship, it was a definitely cute read and story to follow. I enjoyed the sub-plots between the supporting characters equally as much as the main story line, if not even more and wanted to know more about their lives. I laughed at many of the Minnesota-isms in the book too. It seems pretty true to small-town Minnesota life, annual walleye festivals, love of high-school football, etc. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a classic boy meets girl, they drive each-other crazy at first, but you really know that they are bound to end up together story line :)
