Description

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."

Review quote

A groundbreaking story with a theme that is rarely touched upon in this genre. [...] The Girl Who Could Read Hearts by Sherry Maysonave is a psychological novel, a beautiful story of coming to grips with one's gifts. [...] Sherry Maysonave makes readers care about her characters and invites them to embrace their weirdness, their God-given talents without shame.
