A Man's Heart is a story about potato farmers in Washington State. Jules Matias was engaged to be married to Cruz Delgado a neighboring farmer but she had left him standing for the second time. She wanted to go back to school so that she could grow the perfect potato, he was hurt beyond words as they both had loved each other all their lives. Cruz just could not understand why she wanted to wait and he said he was not waiting on her anymore.
Jules had finished her studies but was not anywhere near finding that perfect potato. She received a call that her dad had passed away, so she locked her apartment and got in her car and started driving home. She was so sad, her Mom had left them when she was small and had taken her baby sister, so he was her only close family. She knew when she got home she would meet up with Cruz and she was ready now to marry him but was he ready to forgive her for standing him up two times.
In this book written by Lori Copeland there is so much going on. Jules graduates, closes her apartment and moves back home, where she had to run the potato farm. Her sister came up from Florida where she had been raised by their now deceased mother, she just moved in for an unlimited time. Then there was a drought, a friend with cancer, two little children that needed care, and Pop Jules' dad had left a surprise in his will that was not expected.
All in all this was a great book and I would give it 5 stars. God's healing hand, with love, forgiveness, and learning that only one being could make anything perfect.
This book was sent to me by Zondervan publishers for my review.
