Psalm 37: 4 "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart!"

C.S. Lewis said, "Any amount of theology can now be smuggled into people's minds under the cover of romance without their knowing it.

"Heart's Desire" is also an award-winning screenplay by Ann Ault (more information on Ann's website: www.hifromthesky.net)


"Heart's Desire" is a delightful, supernatural romance that shows God's faithfulness to a Japanese American child named Patsy who is  isolated as a Christian in a Buddhist community. As Patsy grows up, she yearns for a husband to share her faith, but it seems an impossible prayer.  However, God works the impossible through the improbable.  What follows is a saga that is complicated, humorous, and deliciously fulfilling to the ultimate meeting of minds and hearts.

"Heart's Desire" takes an honest look at the struggle we go through to obey the invisible God when we are tempted by the very desires He gives us.   Patsy learns it pays to obey the invisible God who not only gives her heart's desire ... but He gives her a husband, too.

"Heart's Desire" is the Fairy Tale that is real ... it is the Love story that is out of this world!  "Heart's Desire": True love, true faith ... a true story!
