Book: Speak to My Heart
Author: Stacy Hawkins Adams
This novel shows how the Lord is always speaking to us; whether we listen to him is the question.
Serena Jasper is a young professional woman on her way up the corporate ladder in a large advertising firm. She’s always been close to her mother, especially since the death of her father. But when Serena learns of a devastating family secret, she feels betrayed by the one she trusted most.
As she questions how someone as devout as her mother could have lied to her for years, Serena pulls away from both family and faith. Without the haven of hearth and home, she flounders as she tries to help a girlfriend trapped in an abusive relationship. Burying herself in her prestigious career doesn’t help either. With the help of a possible new love in her life, Serena realizes that, instead of resisting the voice, she needs to listen to the One who speaks to her heart.
