SYNOPSIS: Annette Ferrari lives in Lawton, OK with her family when she decides it is time to leave and make it on her own. She moves to Norman with her girlfriend Lynn when she meets Aaron. It is love at first sight as he captures her heart. As they spend time together their love grows. Aaron joins the army and they continue their love through letters. Annette's life is turned upside down as she experiences the Oklahoma Bombing and her letters from Aaron stop. Broken hearted Annette devotes her mind to her studies. Tim a class mate befriends Annette and lets her know how he feels about her. But it isn’t until a disturbing event happens which changes her course of life and love.

REVIEW: A struggle of the heart is a beautiful read that makes you think about the choices that define your life and help make you the person you are meant to be. 

Can a devastating incident impact your life so much it can show you what you are meant to do with it? Can heart break lead to happily ever after? For Annette Ferrari the answer is yes. Leaving behind the small town of Lawton, Annette heads to the city in search of herself. In the journey to find out who she wants to be Annette falls in love, gets her heart broken, figures out who she wants to be and finally gets her happily ever after. 

Fostino describes the characters in beautifully remarkable detail and draws you into their lives - making it seem as if you know them personally. The vivid descriptions in this book capture the reader's attention and brings you into the story. A Struggle of the Heart is an emotional tale about finding one's self, the struggles of love, and the choices we make when it comes to both. 

This book definitely tugged on my heart strings and I must admit, I fell a little bit in love with Aaron myself. I give this book a 5 bottle rating and definitely recommend it for all to read. I will definitely be reading more from Marie Fostino in the future.

Thank you for the honor, Marie.
