A new heart I will give you, and put a new spirit within you; I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my spirit within you and you shall be my people and I will be your God. (Ezekiel 36:26)

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Out of the abundance of the heart flows the issues of life. All of us have hurts and pains that we have hidden deep within through the years. These hurts and pains start identifying who we are not who we were meant to be. There is a new and better way; one in which you can heal, mend and be born again. It is all a Matter of the Heart, because the Heart really Matters. This book will take you through a process of revelation and healing bringing a fresh beginning. Our outside character and identity is quickly changed when our inside personality is healed. I am excited to see you become the person you were always meant to be.

    " This is probably my least favorite Emily Giffen book....too emotionally draining! "

    " I just finished reading this book and I wouldn't even be giving it one star if I didn't have to do so. It was an extremely disappointing read. After reading all of Emily Giffin's books, this is probably her worse so far and makes me second guess reading her book coming out this July. The story line was yet another soap opera style story line with a man cheating on his wife with someone whom he told he loved, told her it was over and then went home crying to his wife wanting to make it "work". For me, it was believable that a man of authority would take advantage to some degree of his position as Charlie's surgeon, but Valerie was a knowing participant. They fell in love with each other and he returned home to profess his love for his wife? Both Tess and Nick seemed unable to see the forest for the trees when contemplating where to go from there...instead of actually not wanting to live a life that is a complete and total lie after broken trust and broken wedding vows, you are lead to believe they both seemed to mutually decide that they weren't able to give up the "life" they built together. There is absolutely no way any woman with any self respect or respect for the sanctity of marriage would be able to move forward. It was devastating the way Nick was so involved in Charlie's life and then abruptly left without seeing him or anything. That is unthinkable to do such a thing to a six-year-old who has been through such a traumatic experience. Nick spent valuable time with Charlie, rebuilding his self-confidence and then he just walks away. It seemed that Tess complained throughout the book about different aspects of her life and frankly painted the life as a stay-at-home-mom with complete and total negativity. Everything to her seemed to be a "duty". She wasn't enjoying her life, so I don't blame Nick for not being satisfied. That should have been the root of their debate at the end of the book, why are we both unhappy? He cheated...she was obviously not happy after giving up her career, something at which she couldn't let go of through the entire book which seemed increasingly redundant. The storyline was questionable, there were many things that left the reader hanging without closure and the idea of infidelity and falling in love with someone else, but still not wanting to "give up the life" you have just because of an expensive house, car, friends, and so on. That's a pathetic excuse and as her friend told her, she stayed after her husband cheated and she despises him. Pretty much that's how it would be for Nick and Tess as well. It was a predictable storyline with a rushed-through ending that seemed downright forced in the way it was written. They got back together too soon and the whole idea of the affair seemed to be gone. I would only want my spouse to stay with me if they loved me. I don't at all understand why Valerie wasn't honest with Tess about loving Nick and vice versa. It seemed the author was trying to prove something with this book that wasn't quite clear. It was not a smooth realistic storyline. In all reality, it was NOT AT ALL believable. I would not recommend this book, unless you are looking for the idea of working through a marriage that will always remain a joke for the rest of your lives. "

    " Reading this book made me angry. So, tired of people who make a commitment and then fail to keep it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 1/31/2014

    " Just to be clear, three stars doesn't mean mediocre. I don't read a book that is mediocre, and if I did, it would only get one star. The Heart of the Matter was good in that it painted pictures in my mind of the scenes as if I was watching a movie, and I fully was able to understand the feelings both Tessa and Valerie were going through. It didn't, however, cause me to look at anything in life with a new perspective, and it didn't introduce me to a character I've never met before. Overall, I'm glad I read it, and it was a good time-killer. "

    " Quick read. Read it out of order not knowing the author has written other books around some of the same characters in this book. Weak women as characters but is needed for the plot. Just okay. Not great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 1/20/2014

    " Fantastic book! Finally a romance writer that writes a novel where the hero and heroine are not perfect. I feel like many people miss the message completely with this book. I have read many bad reviews regarding this novel and I just do not understand why. Hands down best book Giffin has ever written. It breaks my heart and feeds my soul at the same time. Love it! "

    " Enjoyed the read, quick and easy. The storyline pissed me off. Aka the cheating. "

    " First I found the plot interesting but then it was just annoying. Didn't like the ending. But to be honest any ending would be disappointing "

    " I had a tough time reading about the young boy getting burned. Not as a happy book as the others I have read by the same author. "

    " Great Read. I really like Emily Giffin. Definitely my kind of writer. This was a good book. I liked how it tied in Rachel and Dex from her other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Wilder | 11/30/2013

    " I have a weird fascination with books about cheating, even fictionalized accounts. I could relate on some levels. Also loved the tie in to Something Borrowed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/15/2013

    " Not finishing it. And never buying her books again. Another cheater book. This author needs new material. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki Evans | 2/10/2013

    " Didn't make for a pleasant read but I found it to be realistic. Not exactly a fairytale or what women WANT to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 12/5/2012

    " Harmless, light read. I found Giffin's first three to be like this, but didn't love the fourth one (Love the One You're With). She seems back on track. "
