Winner 6 Awards. She’s intuitive. She knows what they are thinking and feeling. She sees colors and images in people’s hearts. She talks to an angel. She’s Kate, a precocious 6-year old. Can she survive the earthly dangers of her uncanny abilities?
Born gifted with a rare seventh sense—the ability to read human hearts coupled with keen intuition— protagonist Kate Kindrick struggles to understand her capabilities. She is often bewildered by her unique perceptions combined with seeing symbols and panoplies of color in people’s hearts.
Kate’s parents fear that their young daughter suffers from delusional psychosis. Their concerns are intensified by her claims that she has conversations with an angel. Yet it’s her naiveté of the intuitive signs that augur trouble. When she doesn’t heed an inner warning, her world spins into a dangerous spiral that spells hazard for her and those she loves. Her antics land her cherished uncle in the hospital. His life hangs in the balance.
"The Girl Who Could Read Hearts" explores issues relevant to many of today’s societal woes: deteriorating family relationships, prejudice, abuse, eating disorders, and limiting belief systems. It delves into the mysteries of death and of angels, plus intuition, finding God in all, and true love. Full of spirit, this poignant story brims with inspiration, daring, and hope.
