“Playing by Heart” by Anne Mateer

Playing by Heart

I think my favorite thing about this book is that it takes place very near where I live and at a time when my great-grandpa would have been about 10 or so years old. Things like that just really make a book that much more interesting for me.

Other than that, though, I did really enjoy this book. I thought it was well written and I really liked the characters. Perhaps it was the time at which I read the book, but I was able to connect with these characters quite a bit and I like that. I think the only thing I actually didn’t like about this book was that the ending felt very abrupt, and because of that I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

This is the first book I’ve read by Anne Mateer, but I will certainly be looking for more of her books in the future!

WHAT SOME OF MY OTHER FRIENDS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK

…Anne’s talent for drawing you in makes you feel like you’re in Dunn, Oklahoma right along-side of them!
Mateer’s novels just get better and better- you don’t want to miss this!
~Alice

This was my first book by Mateer, but it will not be my last. Her style is so sweet and God-honoring. It is the kind of book that leaves you feeling good, as well as causes you to examine your own life and faith.
~Sarah

Sparks fly whenever Lula and Chet get together and their rocky romance makes for an engrossing read. Another exceptional novel from an exceptional writer.
