“It was up to me to face the choices I had made. Did I have the strength inside me to see my journey through to the end?”

Bailey Rose couldn’t hide anymore from the mistakes that she had made. The bills were piling up and it looked as if she was about to be made redundant.

Surely now was the time to make some wise choices and start to control her spending?

Unfortunately for Bailey she felt that the best way to cope with any difficulty in life was to run away and start shopping. The day after she hears rumors that she might be made redundant Bailey hits the shops and buys a pair of sparkly-heeled shoes (her third pair) and a silver sequin dress. They will go perfectly with her diamanté necklace.

Bailey and the girls get together that same evening in the local nightclub and have a great time drinking and gossiping. Before Bailey knows it, the time is 2am, her so-called friends have ditched her and she has no money for a taxi home. The snow that had looked so pretty and diamond like earlier in the evening is now turning into a blizzard, freezing her feet so she can barely walk. With no knight in shining armor to come to her rescue Bailey sets off into the woods, a short cut to her home that she has never taken before in the daylight let alone in the middle of a snowstorm.

It is a decision that will take Bailey to another world.

Will Bailey survive this fairy tale adventure or is this one mistake that she wont be able to hide from?

Bailey isn’t alone on her spiritual journey; she meets some interesting characters that help guide her. The adventure that they go on together teaches Bailey the meaning of true friendship and why good people sometimes make the wrong choices.

In this fantasy world not everyone is so generous with their time or the lessons that they want to teach Bailey. The King and the Captain see Bailey as the answer to their prayers and are more than willing to go to any lengths to force Bailey to help them get what they want. Will Bailey be strong enough to outwit them or will they find a way to break her spirit and her body?

Strength of my Heart is a spiritual tale about a young adult in her early twenties that has to face up to reality in a fairy tale world. The spiritual journey that Bailey goes on reflects our current real world reality of facing up to the financial decisions that we have made in the past and learning to make new choices going forward.

Strength of my Heart takes you on a rollercoaster that will have you wondering if Bailey will ever learn to make the right choice or if she is destined to always be materialistic.

Strength of my Heart – A Spiritual Fairy Tale is a teenage book for girls aimed at a young adult readership of 16 years old and upward. It is a timeless spiritual book for the kindle that will appeal to all age groups.

Reading groups that received advanced copies prior to publication have called the book ‘enchanting’ and ‘thought provoking’

5.0 out of 5 stars A page-turner to lose yourself in 23 Feb 2014
Do you ever recall the fairly tales you used to love so much as a child and lament that the magic you found in those books is over, now you are an adult? 'Strength of My Heart' is truly the fairy tale for adults that you've been wishing someone would write and it has brought back for me some of the delight and total absorption in a story that I remember from way back. It had me in its hands from the very first page.

There is something about the directness and honesty with which this book is written that makes you immediately feel empathy for the very human central character. With such vivid descriptions of scenes and characters, the author has a gift of pulling you in and keeping you there, something which in my opinion, many established authors lack.

If you want a book to quickly lose yourself in, to snuggle up with and which will stay with you for a long time, I highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern day fairy tale 21 Feb 2014
By Jess

This book shows that we are never too old to enjoy a fairy tale. Once I started to read it I didn't want to put the book down.

The story has great depth and many spiritual messages, and I for one can relate well to Bailey, as she begins to re-evaluate her life and her choices.

Thank you Heather for this lovely book and I look forward to your next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story for our time 8 Feb 2014

An adult fairy story with a heroine more worldy than Alice in Wonderland. She takes us on a journey through the mire of corruption & economic despair meeting intriguing characters that ultimately give us a hope for the future.

Firstly, I was drawn to Strength of My Heart by Heather Murdoch by its subtitle, A Spiritual Fairy Tale. I have liked fairy tales ever since I watched a cartoon version of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen on television when I was a schoolboy. After reading the essay on fairy stories in Tree and Leaf by J.R.R. Tolkien, I understood more clearly the importance of fairy stories and why they are not for children alone. Strength of My Heart, which is a good title, I think, could be called a modern fairy story, which wishes to reveal the dangers of being too bound to the world and material possessions and it also unveils a path to spiritual growth.
Written in confident, limpid, flowing prose, the book had an odd charm, which compelled me to read on. Its narrator is a young woman who begins her story not happy with herself, her family, her friends, her job, and is fearful that she might soon become redundant. Left alone in the snow one night, she leaves the ordinary human world behind and enters a world where live talking animals and humans together. Other than the fact that they can talk, there is nothing magical about Rabbit, Unicorn and Fox, the friends she makes in this world, but she does experience some magical moments.
As her heart is gradually thawed, warmed by love and friendship, during the course of her adventures, I found the book had the same affect on mine. So you could call it a heart warming tale, well told. It makes clear the dangers of materialism and reveals a path to redemption from it, through the simple pleasures of friendly company and love. Anyone who enjoys the world of the fairy tale will enjoy reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and lovely fairy tale 11 Mar 2014

Searching for the kind of books I enjoy reading most, I'm really glad to have come across Strength of my Heart.

It's a lovely book with lots of hidden gems and I have already read it 3 times, each time bringing new perspectives. I lost myself in the story, to me, the sign of a good book and read.

Very happy to recommend this as a great little read. Do you have any more books to purchase? Look forward to the next one
