The Heart Asks No Questions by Rose D. Franklyn is really four stories within the book about four women and their respective love and life journeys. The Heart Asks No Questions is divided into four parts which are listed simply as Sylvia’s Story, Mila’s Story, Juliette’s Story, and Amanda’s Story. Each of these women has their own unique background and history, and each story stands independently on its own. Although each of the women, their personalities, histories, their outlook on love and romance, backgrounds, etc. differ, the common theme is that of hope, forgiveness, acceptance, healing, and second chances at love.
The Heart Asks No Questions is a hopeful, heartwarming read, especially for readers who enjoy women’s fiction or romance novels. I liked the structure of the book and the fact that it showcases four such different stories in one book. There is a strong element of the artistic and theatrical world in this book. Although I liked all of the stories, I had favorites and I especially liked Juliette’s story - not only for Juliette’s candid personality, but also for the openness with which she is able to embrace love, sex, and life itself, which can be an inspiration for many women. Because the voice of the stories is first person, it lends authenticity and relatability to the journeys and the specific incidences, while also allowing the reader to understand the mind and emotions of the women undergoing these experiences. This is a great book for all romance genre fans.
