The Temple of the Heart is a novel which must have your full concentration. I had a hard time relating to Joseph, as I found him to be at times immature and nothing more than a moocher. Mr. Anderson does give us a great view of what life was like for those who lived in the 1970’s. The historical aspect of this novel is alive and rich within the pages.
Warning: While the main genre is considered Contemporary, it is also classified as historical, romance, and semi-autobiographical.
