Hidden Under Her Heart

Hidden Under Her Heart is a book wracked with emotions. It has love, pain, suspense, faith, and so much more in it. It is one of those books one is going to love or hate-there is slim chance of being in between. The characters are well written and are deep and compelling. Maryanne is hiding within herself to a point, keeping her secrets and fighting to decide what she should or shouldn't do, while Lucas is opinionated, courageous, and stands to his guns making him even more compelling. The mystery man in this book-Maryanne's assailant-is another character of mystery, and VERY different from the "hero" of this book , Lucas.
I had a hard time putting this book down. At one point, I had no choice as my emotions over ran and it felt so real and my convictions run deep just as Lucas' do. Torn between faith and earthly desire, Maryanne is dragged through an experience that is bound to change her life forever. And the secret she holds just may change Lucas'.  The strong religious connotations behind this book are bound to bring about controversy-hence why I say it is one of those books one will love or hate. I, in fact, absolutely LOVED the book. I enjoyed every page and found myself lost in the pages of my Kindle. (because they have pages, right? ) Travel on a journey of pain, love, and restoration, head on over and purchase Hidden in Her Heart today!
