Contemporary Romance About the Power of Love
Julia Katz’s “Test of the Heart” is a very real story about the complications of long-term relationships and the obstacles that couples in love face. It is also the moving story of how a family deals with various losses – the loss of a son and the possible loss of a marriage.
When Andrea’s son drowns in the family swimming pool, the stresses present in her family relationships come to a head, particularly the contentious relationship she has with her mother-in-law, Gabriella. Andrea’s husband, Matt, is very much in love with his wife but also very much under the control of his mother.

“Test of the Heart” is ultimately a reaffirmation of the power of love, even in the face of unspeakable pain and loss.

Well written and engaging, with characters that are multi-layered and realistic and who are struggling with real-life issues, this is a book that will appeal to fans of contemporary romance fiction that features strong characters and a genuine look at a passionate relationship between 2 people.
