A Fallow Heart Review

About A Fallow Heart by Linda Kage

Ten years ago, an oil tycoon’s daughter and a farmer’s son shared a moment neither would ever forget. When she left town in disgrace, a piece of her stayed locked deep within his soul. And like the ground he tended, his emotions lay fallow for years. Cooper Gerhardt’s deeply buried feelings for Jo Ellen Rawlings grew more fertile over time, just waiting for the day she would return to release his deepest desires.

When she strolls back into Tommy Creek, Texas for her ten-year class reunion, Cooper shows her farm boy style exactly what she missed by leaving. Starting a short-term affair is simply unavoidable. But when the week is over, can either of them let go of the responsibilities and apprehensions keeping them apart? Or will their fallow hearts learn to flourish together?

Stephanie's Review of A Fallow Heart

What can I say? I absolutely loved A Fallow Heart! It’s one of those books that will keep you up late at night waiting to see what will happen next. One of those books that you can so easily relate to that it keeps you on the edge hoping it will never end but, so desperately wanting to know what happens at the end. You know the kind I’m talking about…. The ones that make your pulse rise and your eyes water.  Yeah… it’s that kind of book!

I absolutely fell in love with Cooper- the well-mannered, good looking and an all-out gentleman who was just a well-raised farm boy. Sometimes, so much of a gentleman that he gets his heart broke in fear of holding back his true love from her own dreams. With that said, Jo Ellen was just as much a lady. Never wanting to get in the way of anyone else, never wanting to leave loose ends unraveled and not wanting to risk getting her own heart broke, she stayed away from the one person she knew would love her like no one else could.

Throughout the story, my hear broke a dozen times. Watching fate turn to good, then bad, then good again… and well, the moment when he walked into the high school for their 10 year reunion, I just knew it would be fireworks. Sadly enough, she would never know that he was there. Never know because when he found her the dark hallway with Travis, his heart shattered and he walked away without saying a word.

Needless, to say- keep a box of tissues handy because this one is a real tear-jerker.

A Fallow Heart was a great read- so much so that it will go down on my list of forever favorites. I can’t help but wonder if there will be a second book to the story. While A Fallow Heart was well-written and had a great ending, I can’t help but wonder what might happen next. Hmm, I wonder if the author, Linda Kage might consider writing a sequel and treat us to what happens next for Jo Ellen and Cooper. I know I would be excited to reading it!
