Harvest House Publishers is celebrating the 25th anniversary of one of the most beloved Christian romance novels of all time by releasing an exquisite special edition of the original book. . . Lori Wick’s “Sophie’s Heart” was first released in 1995, and has since sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. Amazingly, I had never before read it and was delighted to discover this captivating story for the first time. With a rich, burgundy and foil-adorned hardcover and a ribbon bookmark, this lovely edition would make a precious gift for ladies of all ages; whether they’ve never before met Sophie, or they’ve read her story time and time again.
Written in simple, charming language and telling a timeless love story between a young woman who left her native country of Czechoslovakia and a widower and his three children, it is clear why “Sophie’s Heart” has won the hearts of so many. There is an almost fairy-tale quality about this story, and yet the true charm is not from magical qualities but rather the heroine’s deep and abiding faith in her God, and the profound effect this has on the family who captures her heart.
If you enjoy quality Christian romance that is clean, deeply faith-based, and inspiring to our own walks of faith, I cannot recommend this sweet story of “Sophie’s Heart” enough. My only regret is that I didn’t discover it years ago! But, I am delighted that Harvest House is making it readily available to a new generation of readers. If you are looking for a heartfelt gift for a special young lady (or lady of any age!) in your life, “Sophie’s Heart: Special Edition” would be the perfect choice.
