Heart of Clay

no. 1, The Women of Tenacity - The Women of Tenacity, no. 1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Strong-willed, successful and determined, Callan Matthews is the queen of organization, detail, and planning. Clay, her fun-loving husband of 13 years, refers to her as Ms. Business. Unfortunately, unbridled chaos runs amuck in the deep, dark places of her heart as she struggles to keep herself together. She contemplates how she ended up at a place in her life where Clay is tugging at the last few threads keeping her from completely unraveling. It isn't his ghastly snoring, his inability to pick up after himself or the tonal quality his belching repertoire is gaining on a daily basis that is pushing her toward the edge of a breakdown. It is a secret Callan refuses to reveal.

Easy-going cowboy Clay Matthews is a respected college professor, a favorite among family and friends, and completely baffled by his wife. He thought he knew everything there was to know about this woman. Suddenly, she's turned into a mystifying female he barely understands. Clay would give just about anything to recapture the feelings they used to share, but Callan seems to want no part of it. Just when he decides to get to the root of the problem no matter the outcome, he discovers his wife has harbored a secret nearly too painful to bear.

Will their love be strong enough to withstand a revelation that will rock the foundation of their marriage?

Grab some Kleenex...or the box!

I. Loved. It. I laughed. I cried...and cried...and cried. Being there with Laney and Brick every step of the way - experiencing the hurt, the doubts, and feeling every pain - made me appreciate them so much more. So many tears but so worth the happy ending! Have I mentioned I loved this book?! :-) Hug the person who means the most to you and say how much you love him/her. Hug, say, repeat. For as long as you both shall live.

Heart of Clay!

I could not put this book down! Loved it! Thank You!

Heart of Clay

Can someone please write a book where the female character isn't weak, whiny, pathetic, and all about woe is me. She was strong enough to lie, keep a HUGE secret, and start a business without her husband's approval. She knew love because of her brother and father. If she thought her husband would eventually leave her, why get married...who does that? God became a part of the book but not in the beginning. They should've been consulting God before they got married instead of afterwards and even then it took thirteen years once the lies started to surface for them to call out.These two shouldn't have been together because neither was responsible or grown-up enough to be in a healthy adult relationship. I didn't like the female or male characters. This book was not well thought out.
