About the Author
Marie Wells Coutu claims she has been writing all her life. Through story, she hopes to inspire women to find God’s purpose for their lives regardless of where they’ve been or what they’ve done. A writer and editor for newspapers, magazines, nonfiction books, and government agencies, she has edited devotionals and other books published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, she is a past president of Carolina Christian Writers. The Secret Heart is the third book in the Mended Vessels series. The first, For Such a Moment, was her debut novel and won the Books of Hope Contest. Thirsting for More, the second book in the series, was a finalist in the 2016 Selah Awards Contest and a semi-finalist in the Royal Palm Literary Awards sponsored by Florida Writers Association. Marie retired after 15 years with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and she and her husband now divide their time between Florida and Iowa. You can learn more about Marie and her novels on her Facebook page (Author Marie Wells Coutu), at her website (MarieWellsCoutu.com), or follow her on Twitter (@mwcoutu).

Coutu has a beautiful way of revealing character through relationships. The main character, Shawna, is the second wife of the Governor of Tennessee. If that wasn’t hard enough, the Governor’s late wife’s mother lives with them and cares for his children. Can you imagine? Talk about fireworks!
But the real drama is between the power couple themselves. Ambition and guilt are lonely bedfellows and Coutu unravels and re-tangles their marriage with each disappointment. Can it survive all the secrets and scandal? I'll never tell, but you'll love getting to know the real Shawna and Hunter.
Marie Wells Coutu is a lovely writer and I was thrilled to receive a free copy of The Secret Heart in exchange for my fair and honest review.
It is a realistic story, and quite a page turner. I enjoyed how the author took a family who is in a political office and talked about the every day conflicts they face. I got attached to the characters and wanted to know what was going to happen, so found it hard to put down. Shows us the lesson of honesty, forgiveness and moving on, no matter what happened in our past. If you like Christian fiction, this is a great addition to your library!
