My Foolish Heart
In "My Foolish Heart" by Susan May Warren, Isadora Presley is the town recluse after a tragic accident leaves her unable to leave her home. She is also the host of the radio show My Foolish Heart. She works out of her home and gives advice on romance to her listeners. But Isadora has never been on a date. She wants to be able to meet someone and fall in love but after the accident, she has panic attacks and is not able to leave her neighborhood. Slowly she is able to venture out to places but feels more comfortable at home. Caleb Knight moves in next door and he has his own scars he is hiding from the town. Caleb moved to Deep Haven to be the new football coach after their football coach was injured in a car wreck. Caleb and Issy get off on the wrong foot and when they find out they are neighbors, things become more awkward. Especially when Issy finds out why he is in town and when Caleb finds out her father is the coach he is replacing. Caleb wants to get to know Issy better because he is intrigued by her. He calls My Foolish Heart hoping to be able to get advice on how to win her over. Neither Caleb nor Issy realize they are talking to each other on the show and they start to fall for each other on and off the air. Can Caleb help Issy overcome her fears?
