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.

Annette had grown up in a small town and was very close to her parents. After high school she moved to the city to attend college and share a house with her best friend. Working as a beautician, she never expected to find love strolling into her shop. Aaron was a very handsome and wonderful man. She fell in love immediately. They shared everything. Then Aaron told her he signed up to join the Army. While devastated, Annette supported his decision. She never dreamed her life could change so drastically in a year, but it did.
Very emotional and full of compassion, this book will tug those heartstrings hard. Ms. Fostino includes some historical information in this book to give it a different twist. Family and love are both included in this latest book. Ms. Fostino is very good at describing human situations and emotions. You'll love this book but keep the tissues handy, you'll need them. I recommend this book highly.
I found it included more than the needed amount of medical information. It could have easily been highlighted and still gotten the point across. This made it drag in places.
I gave this one 4 cheers our of 5 because the medical information lost my interest after so much was included. Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

This is my favorite of the books I've read by Marie Fostino. Raw emotion and realistic situations, the flashback into the horror of the Oklahoma City bombing, parts of it were difficult to read, because it was so real. A Struggle of the Heart had great characters and the plot moved along at a pace that made it easy to read and hard to put down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book had me gripped from the word go, I was totally hooked and could not put it down. It told the story of Annette, a young lady who fell in love and had her heart broken. Then through the tragedy of a bombing in her local city, decisions were made which lead her to a different path. I was really involved with the characters, which were very believable. Being a health care professional myself the intensity and stress of going through medical school, I could really relate too. The book was easy to read, descriptive, well written and flowed. It was a pleasure to read. I recommend this book, and look forward to reading the next book by Marie Fostino.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
