on July 20, 2013

Hidden Under Her Heart is a story about abortion and courage. Maryanne Torres tries to gain validation and love by giving more in each relationship than she takes. Her boyfriend, Lucas Knight believes his reason for existence lies in becoming a triathlon champion. An unwanted pregnancy forces Maryanne to examine her past while Lucas is torn between concern and bitterness. Meanwhile, a tiny life hangs on the balance. Is it worthless because it is unwanted? (Summary from Rachelle Ayala‘s site.)

My Review

When I first started reading the book, I thought this was going to be man falls in love, woman falls in love, man saves woman, and they live happily ever after.  I was wrong.  This book has twists, turns, ups, and downs.  It is about a journey for Maryanne and Lucas on their own as they try to come together.

This author allows the reader to see the raw emotions of the main characters.  The characters’ past plays a major role in the plot.  I feel this book is relatable to people as our past always plays a part in who we are.  People have to come to terms with the past in order to move on in the future.

I would recommend this book.  There were a couple of times I wasn’t sure if I could finish reading the book (especially in the beginning when I thought Lucas would “save” Maryanne), but once I was able to get past that, I didn’t want to put the book down.  I will be reading this book again.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  2. I love to read books that have lots of twists and turns, that’s what makes them interesting. Now I listen to books on tape
