Cliff 'Clean-Up' Markham is back in Sterling Lakes for St. Luke's Vacation Bible School when he meets Laura Matthewson, the local librarian. It looks like Cliff is smitten with Laura but Laura seems to be wary of him. A problem between Sterling Lakes and Clark’s Falls thrusts the two of them together in search of a solution. It looks like this problem has happened before and might history be repeating itself? Amidst all these difficulties, Laura also has to think about letting her own light shine. In a small town where there are still people with small and closed minds, will letting one’s light shine be the answer to all their problems. Praise of the Heart by Regina Andrews is the third book in The Sterling Lake series but can be read as a standalone.
Praise of the Heart is a beautiful and uplifting book. Just reading the conversations of the main characters makes my heart feel light. The story is inspirational and holds some nuggets of wisdom that we all should know and live by. The main theme of the book is about letting our light shine and it was shown in the development of the characters. The book lesson came across very well. There is some romance in the story but I think this can be read by people of all ages. A good book with a solid ending.
