A PURELY DIFFERENT READ.

I read this book with a dear friend. We reviewed this for our blog. We thank Miss Becks for providing a copy and letting the two of us read it together. This book is completely different. It's not something that I would pick up upon seeing the blurb, but it's a book that was worth the shot.

This is a convo review btw. :) I am known as the RockChickF. :)



When you first saw the title, what did you think of it?


RockChickF: I thought it sounded like R.L. Mathewson's books. :)

A Naive Heart is a story about secrets and betrayal. It's a story that I tried to enjoy, hoping against hope for a happy ending, but ultimately came away from feeling dirty, hurt, and offended. It's a story that's said to be based on a true story, but as to whether or not that is Sarah Becks own story, I don't think I care to know.

Early on, I wondered if maybe it's because I identify far better with John than Sarah that I had such an issue with this. When he struggles so hard to keep his secret,

By no means is this a typical romance but it caught my attention based solely on the blurb. Becks’s engaging inaugural foray into story writing is gripping in its very straightforward approach. Based on a true story, I don’t know if it’s the author’s own story or someone else’s, I read this in one sitting. How does anyone, man or woman, know that the person that they’ve married is being honest about themselves? This isn’t an exploration on getting an answer, instead it’s one woman’s story about ...more

I liked reading this book. It made me think about how we are as individuals and the thoughts that we think and the fact that we aren't open to listening to others. That's precisely how secrets begin or why they are kept. That being said I really wonder how much do you have to know a person before you know enough. Enough to spend your life with them. Enough to think that the two of you are similar.

This book is excellent in its underlying messages and I really appreciate the author for her courage
