Playing by Heart

Playing by Heart
Anne Mateer
Lula lost her mother when she was young. So when her father finally pays attention to her she soaks up his words. His dream for his youngest daughter is for her to be the first female with a PhD. So Lula changes her flighty personality and goes after her degree in mathematics. When her older sister loses her husband, Lula heads home to help her out temporarily. There she learns that her father's dreams might not be what God has in mind for her. It's not exactly what she wants to hear.

I really enjoyed this book. The emotions and conflicts that the characters displayed were very real and relatable. I felt the author pulled from what people during this time period might have been dealing with and wrapped her story around it. This plot had romance, drama, and faith. I'm not a fan of basketball or math, but despite this I enjoyed the story and will definitely read more by this author in the future.

I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
