The Girl Who Could Read Hearts — A Family and The Power of Intuition


     If you are intrigued by the wisdom of listening to your heart, intuition, the supernatural, mysticism, and               enjoy C.S. Lewis, The Shack, Doreen Virtue, The Alchemist, or Oprah, you’ll be captivated



Born gifted with a rare seventh sense ─ the ability to read human hearts coupled with keen intuition ─ Kate struggles to understand her premonitions while surrounded by skeptical, sometimes cruel, family members and their secrets. With startling twists, the story brims with inspiration and daring while exploring intuition, the supernatural, angels, the afterlife, and issues relevant to many of today’s societal woes.

A compelling tale filled with subtle wisdom, the book is both tantalizing and powerful.


Riveting… a page-turner.” “Highly recommended.” “Filled with dynamic, rich imagery.”



“A moving, memorable story that combines spiritual reflections with a myriad of social, political and personal conflicts… and they make for a complex web of events. The Girl Who Could Read Hearts is a highly recommended, evocative read…” 

— D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review


This is an affecting story about believing in oneself, and perhaps even of the importance of the supernatural.

“In Sherry Maysonave’s intriguing and supernatural The Girl Who Could Read Hearts, a young girl with special powers navigates through the drama in her life… The story has an immediate mystical tone… and is filled with dynamic, rich imagery…”

The use of the diverse family members from several generations creates the sense of a rich tapestry of history and of the scope of the secrets, adding appeal to the already seductive plot. Their interwoven stories further convey themes of believing in oneself and in divine intervention…”

Foreword / Clarion Reviews 


This book weaves spiritual, mystical, and experiential themes into the most compelling family storyline ever. The author’s use of metaphors, similes, and analogies bring life and light to these interconnections making the read a great delight. Little Kate’s character magnifies those around her elevating the spirit of hope and imagination while laying bare some of life’s greatest questions. Highly recommend it!

“I am a fan of both magic and fantasy (Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, The Dresden Files). I would consider The Girl Who Could Read Hearts to be a wonderful fantasy about a little girl, the travails in her life and the magical way in which she overcame them, if I did not also know that much of what happens with her is also the true life experiences of the author Sherry Maysonave. This book can be an enjoyable quick read, but don’t do that. Take your time, contemplate the nuances, and decide for yourself how faith can create change. Enjoy — and learn!”

— Eddie Castoria, 5-Stars, Amazon Reviewer, 8-9-2017



“The Girl Who Could Read Hearts by Sherry Maysonave is a truly enjoyable way to be reminded of the magic possible in earthly lives… an inspirational and thought-provoking novel. Ms. Maysonave writes in a clear, easy-to-read style; the story flows effortlessly. While there are many characters and various connections between them, it is easy to keep track of each one… The author’s sharing of her own intuitive abilities at the end of the book is also enlightening. 

This book is truly a page-turner, engaging the reader from the first page until the last.”

— Deborah Lloyd, 5-Stars, Readers’ Favorite Reviewer


“I loved the book! It was insightful and had characters well developed and personable! We all need to learn to find God in everything and true love is something we all strive for. From whether angels are real to all the mystery that surrounds death, this is a book that seems to say sometimes all is darkest before the dawn; but dawn will come.

I would definitely recommend this book to all ages, and have suggested it as an addition to our local library

— NightFaery, 5-Stars, Net Galley & Amazon Reviewer


“… a lot of action… I enjoyed the little surprises and secrets we learn along the way that unexpectedly connect the characters. The book certainly has the ability to stir up emotions as readers learn about the sorrows and joys these family member experience. 

Not many inspirational books have quite this much suspense and activity… most readers will find at least one family member who they can relate to.”
