Growing up between the strong guidance of his successful father and a secret fascination for gangsters, Tonio, a farm boy on the cusp of manhood falls in love with Sobe, the new Sheriff's daughter. He's brave and impetuous and he will stop at nothing to protect those he loves.
Told in the first person point of view Deep in the Heart of Me explores the depth of thoughts and feelings in a young teenage boy as he grows into a man.
I love this book, Diane has written a story that amazes me and reminds me of how stubborn and deeply emotional a teenage boy can be. Her writing reminds me of myself at that age.
I love writing in the first person when it is done well, and Diane succeeds in this area extremely well. Her descriptions of the locale, foods, and so many aspects of daily life in 1930’s Middle America are superb. She maintains POV so very well, which is key to writing in first person. The supporting cast is developed quite well also. One of the problems that Diane solved quite expertly is the balance between introspection and action and dialog.
Deep in the Heart of Me deserves a perfect score of 5 STARS! Thank you Diane for hours of entertaining reading.
