My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade is a story of waiting on God, listening to God and following God's path in life and love despite your own desires. Kate Donovan accompanies her grandmother to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to help with the restoration of Chapel Bluff, the house her grandmother grew up in. Kate is looking forward to an adventure and a break from work and life. She gets more than she expected when she meets Matt Jareau, the man hired to renovate the house. Of course, she can't help being attracted to him, but she can tell that he is clearly struggling with something and she is determined to befriend him and help with whatever he is going through.
I really enjoyed this book. I really like Wade's writing style. I found the characters well developed and believable. As for what happens in the book, I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil it for anyone who plans to read it, but I was so sad for both Kate and Matt when she moved back home. But fortunately, there was a happy ending!
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
