Overall Review:  

A Trusting Heart is a light-hearted novel discussing the power of forgivness and learning when it is okay to trust. The book examines Megan's broken childhood as well as her sister's Anorexia resulting from it. Megan must finally learn how to forgive her family and the man she left at the alter in order to move on with her life.


As Megan falls for a new man, she discovers just how hard it is to love and trust when things are not always as they seem. This book teaches readers how important forgivness is in a way that is fun and easy to read. Although published by a LDS publisher this book mentions little of the LDS faith specifically and is perfect for any young adult looking for a light-hearted read with a sprinkling of life lessons.
