3.0 out of 5 stars Love Your Heart, February 12, 2010
This review is from: Love Your Heart (My Little Girl) (Hardcover)
I wanted to like Love Your Heart by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas more than I did. The message behind the story was wonderful, don't get me wrong. I just got caught up on the disconnected details. Katie, the main character, tries to figure out what she's good at to do at a talent show. I liked that the daddy said, "It's okay. God gave you lots of talents, Katie. Let's ask Him to help you find just the right one for the Talent Show." But they never showed them praying or what talent she decided to do! That was a huge teachable moment missed.

Then Katie's friend Sophie jumps into the story. It was an abrupt addition. I think she could have showed up in the story earlier to make the reader have feelings for her before backstage at the talent show...the moment of a selfless decision for Katie.

I loved how Katie helped Sophie which she, along with Katie's daddy, recognized as honorable actions revealing her heart. I missed a wrap up, however, of the Christian message. A tie to God's ways or Biblical truth would have been nice.
