Born gifted with a rare seventh sense-the ability to read human hearts coupled with keen intuition-Kate Kindrick struggles to understand her capabilities. She is often bewildered by her unique perceptions combined with seeing symbols and panoplies of color in people's hearts. Kate's parents fear that their young daughter suffers from delusional psychosis. Their concerns are intensified by her claims that she has conversations with an angel. Only her grandmother, who is gravely ill, and her uncle, a famous writer, encourage Kate to develop her gifts. Yet it's her naivete of the intuitive signs that augur trouble. When she doesn't heed an inner warning, her world spins into a dangerous spiral that spells hazard for her and those she loves. Her antics land her cherished uncle in the hospital. His life hangs in the balance. Just when she believes things couldn't get worse, her life cascades down a doubly treacherous path. She is forced to spend extended time with her teenage cousin, Marilla Marzy, and the girl's sinister father-Vaynem Moxsin. Tormented by both of them, she prays for rescue. Shocking events transpire. This captivating novel explores issues relevant to many of today's societal woes: prejudice, abuse, eating disorders, and limiting belief systems. It delves into the mysteries of death and of angels, plus intuition, finding God in all, and true love. Full of spirit, this poignant story brims with inspiration, daring, and hope.

Love it!
I’m in a book club with 8 other picky readers who range in age from 33 to 70. We like a good story; page turners are favorites. We also value substantive content so we have plenty to toss around while we enjoy dinner and a glass of wine. I’ve recently read Sherry Maysonave’s, "The Girl Who Could Read Hearts", and it’s now the book we will read and discuss next month. I love the underlying message, the divine has our back if we listen to divine guidance, which at times can be subtly communicated. There’s more, a story line with twists and turns, a villain with character traits I recognize from a few of the villains in my own life, and an angel advising a six year old who has the gift to . . . read hearts.
