A Great Story!

Where does My Stubborn Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I haven't listened to a lot of audiobooks, but this one was very enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Stubborn Heart?

A very memorable moment was when Kate was telling Matt that she knew that he'd lost his wife and if he wanted to talk about it, she was there for him.

Which character – as performed by Kate Forbes – was your favorite?

Matt

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can Matt Jarreau ever get over the guilt and pain of his first wife's death and learn to love again?

Any additional comments?

Story was slow

I loved the story line and clean Christian romance. I did feel this story dragged on longer then it needed to however.

Beautiful Story

I loved the message of this book. Beautiful story showing how to live out God’s plan on His timetable. The narrator was good but didn’t fit the image of 31 year old Kate. Would have preferred a younger, more energetic voice for this book.
