My Stubborn Heart By Becky Wade

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?
God answers prayer in his time, and his way, not ours, and that is exactly what the undertones of this book is about. I have to be honest, the cover drew me in first, because it looked like a fun and flirty read, but it was a great storyline, none the less. We all know someone in the same situation, if not ourselves and can place them in the story. It's a great Sunday afternoon on the porch swing type of book. I felt connected with the characters and drawn into the book. I think the author accomplished what she set out to do, and provide as real characters as possible. I would reccomend this book.
