Blog Tour for Heart's Storm by Julia Sherman




Book Blurb:


Elizabeth Shulman, a twenty-seven-year-old Russian Jewish immigrant, would like nothing better than not to die a corporate accountant working at a Fortune 100 company. She wants to walk away from the corporate rat-race, but...she’s still holding onto the painful memories from her poor past—from the days her family came to America with nothing so that their children could have a free life.



But soon one day’s event turns Elizabeth’s world upside down and inside out. With her bubble burst, Elizabeth decides to take the first step, quit her job. However, her bullying boss from HELL offers her a promotion and a big raise. But there’s a hitch. She must also agree to do pro bono work to bolster the company’s image. Her pro bono assignment: tutor unprivileged kids in a Southwest Chicago elementary school. And there, in school, her life begins to change when she gets a peek at a different type of world from her own.



Heart’s Storm is a bitter-sweet romantic comedy about love and career, family and friends, immigration and hardships, betrayal and forgiveness, and the promise of the American dream.


Jo-Anna's Review:

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the interaction between characters and that it had some funny moments but still had some deep moments as well. I also loved that it has to do with friendship, old and new love, and family. Coming from Russia to America would be a hard and difficult thing to endure and I thought the author did a wonderful job portraying that in the main character. My favorite parts are when Liz is with the children and how they bond. If you enjoy romance novels with some seriousness to them, this is a definite must read for you!
