A Discerning Heart is part romance, part fantasy, part cautionary tale. A rollicking story of an Old World fisherman who looked for love and acceptance but settled for power and wealth. Throw in a mysterious island and even more mysterious mermaid and an enchanting story emerges. Sex, lies and a long missing pirate’s identity are all major plot points in this fantastical romantic adventure.

Five Star Review on Amazon By Lorraine Price
A Discerning Heart is nothing like the title would indicate. I got sucked into it right away with “Dim Jim.” I immediately felt sorry for this character and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen. I loved the breathtaking description of the island that he visits and thoroughly enjoyed the magical, mystical fairy tale that seemed to appear out of thin air as I read this story with relish. It was full of hope, danger, mystery, enchantment, trouble, and romance. Definitely an adult version of a fairy tale!
Patty has a way of bringing reality, depth, and dimension to every character she creates. I can’t stop reading her book until I have finished it. Loved it!
