The stock market has crashed and the United States is plunged into the Great Depression, dragging hard-working individuals to the depths of despair as they struggle to keep their heads above water. Robert Blair knows this first hand as everyday becomes a battle for survival when he loses his NYC dock job. Fighting hopelessness, Robert barely manages to feed his wife Ellen and their four-year-old son Stephen as he combs the city for any type of work. Even at the lowest point, Robert is selfless,...more

Gail Gurley is a writer who pierces the heart. This book is by far her best work, although every book she writes holds you in the palm of her hand. Fearless Heart captures the time period with ease, but gives the reader an in-depth view of an extremely conflicted family. Gail writes from her heart and it shows in this story. I could not put it down and have since recommended the book to my book club. Way to go, Gail! I look forward to more from this talented writer.

A very heartwarming story of men coming together in times of need.

I love this story and can't thank the author enough for sending it to me. Its a great story of hardship of family and devotions of friendship. Of love and compassion and of unity in times of need. I would recommend this story for anyone who would love a good story.

I HAVE JUST READ THE FIRST THREE CHAPTERS OF FEARLESS HEART, AND I FOUND IT TO BE HEART WARMING, AND TOUCHING. THE CHARACTERS ARE REAL AND THE DESCRIPTIONS PUT YOU IN THE HEART OF NEW YORK CITY IN THE DEPRESSION. I HAVE JUST ORDERED THE BOOK AND CANNOT WAIT FOR IT TO ARRIVE.

This story is very deep and touching. It draws you in by the fully developed wonderful characters and their strong faith in God. It is set during the great depression. Instead of being overwhelmed, withdrawn and brooding over their own circumstances, the characters truly cared about each other. If they had more than someone else, t...more

The characters in Gail Cauble Gurley's "Fearless Heart" may be living through all the hardships of the Great Depression, but based on their unbelievably positive outlook this would apparently be news to them. Despite the possibilities of freezing, starving and losing their home, they remain smiling and happy like veritable Stepford Wives. The sweetness runs a tad thick here, in a voice which seems most suitable for reading to children. At Sunday School, perhaps.
