Quotes & Awards

  • “Brims with historically significant details…Sudden celebrity imposes a heavier burden on conservative women than on most. In America by Heart, we learn about this woman’s inner strength to persevere, whatever lies ahead.”

    Washington Times

  • “This isn’t your traditional campaign book by any stretch. This is more Book of Virtues meets biography, with long blockquotes and candid reflections. It stands on its own as a nice little contribution to our culture.”

    National Review Online

  • “The always-outspoken former vice presidential candidate intersperses personal reflections with her favorite classic and contemporary readings on family, religion, and patriotism. Rousing selections for like-minded mavericks.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “More overtly political than her autobiography, the book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her and portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires. Palin fans will enjoy this audio experience.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/5/2014

    " I just really like Sarah Palin. She is so anti what I think people who call themselves politicians are these days that I wish more people would just speak from their heart. She gets what is wrong with society and how to fix it. I really enjoyed her candor and the chance to grab a look "inside" at how she operates things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zandile Nemukula | 2/4/2014

    " Thruthful, open and basically saying it as it is "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Icenhour | 1/30/2014

    " Good read, deep in history but rather funny how it made me mad at things I didnt know about this country and the things going on behind the scenes. I know it is mostly one persons account but I did Google a lot of the information and found it to be true. I would tell you, read this and see for yourself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara Lofley | 1/29/2014

    " I really like Sarah Palin, she is the perfect picture of conservative feminism. I got roped into her pep talks and felt a lot of emotion and appreciation for America, and especially for our troops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 1/23/2014

    " I loved this book. She expresses many of my feelings about our country and faith. I think anyone that really wants/does slam her should take the time to read her two books. They prove that the rhetoric about her being stupid and inept is wrong. You may not like her, but that doesn't make her stupid or inept. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 1/18/2014

    " I liked her first book better. In America by Heart she talks about her personal political beliefs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ixan | 1/16/2014

    " Ridiculous woman. Sets herself up to represent Christians. She should have stuck to pageants. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 1/10/2014

    " Better than I expected, mostly due to the many nice quotes and stories she included. I particularly liked the ones on patriotism and faith/morality. For me the second half of the book is better than the first. However, I do not like her writing style or her political commentaries much. Succeeded at my having a greater respect for the author, but I still cannot say I am a fan "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan Minnick | 1/6/2014

    " Great book, I was pleasantly surprised that there are still real down-to-earth people out there who actually care about the direction of this country. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wayne | 12/31/2013

    " I think that you have to give her credit for having good values, and trying to do the right thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guna | 12/24/2013

    " Sarah Palin is an engaging writer, with strong conservative beliefs. But she is not strident. This is a good book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Clare | 12/5/2013

    " I wish I could write a book that is basically a compilation of quotes from other writers and speakers and market it as my own work. This was a real disappointment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 11/22/2013

    " Not quite what I expected. A little tough to finish, but still good to read and take time to remember what is good about America. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Xox | 11/14/2013

    " Yet another book from the stupid myth believers. Sarah is good at making a quick buck from the really brain dead stupid myth believers. But the book itself has no real content, and it is better off by making the page blank so that we oculd use it as a notebook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deena Jordan | 10/21/2013

    " I liked this book. Not quite as much as her first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/10/2013

    " Not nearly as good as her first one. it seemed like she did more quoting other sources than actually putting her own ideas out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 9/17/2013

    " Liked it, but not as much as her first book. This was more political, other was autobiographical. easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 8/27/2013

    " A little too detailed, but worth reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liv | 7/17/2013

    " I actually read this book. It gets two stars because it has some LOL moments. It's also going on my Politics of the Family syllabus in two places! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Chavel | 4/9/2013

    " Excellent book. Lots of great quotes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Max | 3/6/2013

    " has soon good ideas and points but tends to beat them to death for several pages "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 11/16/2012

    " Mediocre...I thought this book was going to be something totally different. It was simply an addendum to Going Rogue. However, I thought her chapter on Feminism and the National Organization of Women was dead on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Jones | 7/31/2012

    " This is a very enjoyable book. It lays out Sarah's worldview and her vision for America's future. For the haters on the left, it puts to shame the lie that she is a vapid airhead. The book is full of common sense. Read it with an open mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra | 5/15/2012

    " I like this book! I think Sarah had a lot of good things to say. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara Holman | 11/11/2011

    " Received as a gift, was a little hard to read. However, it is good message from someone I highly admire. It is just not the typical genre of book I tend to read. Historical reference, might be good for High School project on women in politics today. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tish | 9/25/2011

    " Love Sarah. Decent book that reflects her values. Nothing I didn't expect. "

    " I loved this book. I really felt like this book embodied the American dream. It truly explains how the family is the foundation of this country and where the country's strength lies. Sarah Palin is very articulate in her writing and I have enjoyed everything she has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tish | 5/19/2011

    " Love Sarah. Decent book that reflects her values. Nothing I didn't expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/19/2011

    " Resonated with me because I'm pretty much on the same platform as Sarah Palin on family, faith and flag. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guna | 4/4/2011

    " Sarah Palin is an engaging writer, with strong conservative beliefs. But she is not strident. This is a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 3/13/2011

    " Great reading. She is an outstanding American, no matter your political persuasion. She care about people in the United States.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 3/8/2011

    " I actually listened to her narrate this book and was pleasantly surprised. Her best book so far, in my opinion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 3/1/2011

    " Very biased to the right, but she doesn't want to be part of the GOP any more. Seems to be positioning herself to be called Tea Party. I only really liked the parts about her family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LJh* | 3/1/2011

    " Surprisingly, a fine book. Palin is a good and sincere woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maddy Kay :) | 3/1/2011

    " This is really interesting! Love her and her family. And her show is hilarious! I think she deals with all the crap that people dish, very, very well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yo | 2/28/2011

    " Loved it. There's lots of humour, and the great love of our country enthusiasm that I haven't seen since Reagan permeates the book. It's encouraging and reminds you that there's still hope for our country despite the negative events that pound us every day from the media. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 2/24/2011

    " I plan on writing a more detailed review of this book and Going Rogue on my blog, getting some criticisms out of the way before the political silly season starts -- when I intend to do nothing but defend her. But for now, let me just say that Palin is a wise woman and a real Christian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devon | 2/20/2011

    " This book has a lot of good ideas but at times she loses me in her absolute faith. Also towards the end you can tell she just wants to finish the book. The research either takes the backseat to speculation and opinion or she just uses quotes to fill space. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 2/15/2011

    " This is a very enjoyable book. It lays out Sarah's worldview and her vision for America's future. For the haters on the left, it puts to shame the lie that she is a vapid airhead. The book is full of common sense. Read it with an open mind. "
