    Best Ever

    I really love this book I read it back in 9th grade. Now at 23 and a new found love for the word it was wonderful Christian Romance novel. From the scriptures to the story I loved. This had been the only book I read by Lori Wick but I'm definately going to read more.

    Not Worth Your Time

    A friend of mine recommended this book to me and I, being someone who is always reading about five books at a time, took her up on it. Needless to say, I was so very disappointed in it. To be honest, I only finished the whole thing because I told my friend I would. The entire novel was sappy and cliched. There was no depth to the characters and the children in the story did not act their age at all. The title character was almost ridiculously perfect in everyway and the 'climax' was extremely melodramatic. This book would probably be good for someone who doesn't want to think much and is looking for the very basest of reading entertainmet and shallowness.

    Great Book

    This is a great very tender heart warming book. I loved everything about it although I wish it would have talked more about Gladys. Very knowledgeable book, sure to bring tears to your eyes

    I really like this book my first book by lori wick and am glad i read it 
    Characters in this book are great from the adults to the kids in the family. Each one has a special trait like we all do. My favorite was Sophie and the little girl. At times it's funny, and at times it's heart-wrenching.It is a very touching book and even made me cry.
    thanks to my reading buddy zara for suggesting and reading with me 
    Sophie's Heart by Lori Wick is on Darlene's read shelf. Darlene gave this book 5 stars. Shelves: favorites

    Really good

    Really enjoyed this book throughout. Yeah it's a little long, but I didn't feel bored. It also kind of reminded me of the movie Spanglish. Looking forward to reading the author's other books.

    A Must-Have

    There are books I read that I know I have to own - Sophie's Heart is one of them. At times it's funny, and at times it's heart-wrenching. Lori Wick is an amazing author. I love reading every single one of her books. She's one author that I know will never let her readers down.

    The Celebration of Christian Romance Style

    I read a lot of different litirature styles. I read Christian Romance when I need to relax from 'heavy' reading. Sophie's Heart is my favorite book by Lori Wick. The plot is very structured, no side-tracking characters makes the plot captivating. If you like the Sound of Music musical, you will love Lori's Sophie's
