THE TEMPLE OF THE HEART
RICHARD A. ANDERSON
Rating: 3 Cups
Joseph Banquo is studying to be a monk. But after seeing a beautiful woman outside of the monastery, he realizes that is not the life for him.
Byron Sage is a loner. But when Joseph becomes his friend while they are attending the same college, he finds Joseph to be overbearing and too much for him at times.
Joseph leaves in search of who he really is. Along the way, he meets many women and hopes that one may have the potential to be the lover he is looking for. He is lost and cannot tell which path he is supposed to take. Will he find out who he truly is, or has all the soul searching left him lost forever?
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.
