My Foolish Heart is a fun book to read that goes deeper than most books that are centered around romance. The book deals with fears that can keep someone from living life like they should. It shows nicely how God can move someone beyond their fears to accomplish what they didn’t think possible.
One of the stories in the book involved a competition to see who would become the new high school football coach. Without giving anything away, I enjoyed how neither one was made to be the bad guy. They were both good guys, vying for the same position. I liked how it played out.
The end was tied up a little to neatly in my opinion. But I’m one who likes endings that are a little more realistic and leave some things undone, but giving the reader the idea that it’s moving in the right direction. Almost all of the characters, even some of the secondary characters, in the book experienced growth or heart-change throughout the book.That was a plus.
Overall, this was a great read. I found myself thinking about the characters when I wasn’t reading the book. This is a really good author, and I’ll look for more of her titles to read. There are other books in this series that come before this one. I didn’t realize that when I picked up the book, but all of the background needed for this story was filled in nicely, so I wasn’t lost having not read the previous books
