Sophie's Heart by Lori Wick
Who can know the heart of a woman? Who can fulfill her deepest dreams and desires before she even realizes them?
Sophie’s Heart is the story of Sophie Velikonja’s journey from Czechoslovakia, her homeland, to finding a home in America. Despite her heartbreak of leaving her grandmother, once in America God begins to fulfill her deepest desires in unexpected ways and draw her closer to Him though it all. From translating foreign languages, to cleaning up after 3 children, and falling in love with a widower, Sophie’s story is a journey that leads the reader into her heart and life.
Lori Wick is one of my favorite authors and this book is just another reason to love her writing. The characters were delightful. Sophie truly exemplified what it means to have a servant’s heart and to trust the Lord even when you can’t see how things will work out. I enjoyed this book. It was a little long for my taste, but I don’t think that the story would have been complete without the length. I would definitely recommend this book.
