Review of The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae by Stephanie Butland

Reviewed by: Mojomums reviewer Nichola

What they say: Ailsa Rae is learning how to live.

She’s only a few months past the heart transplant that – just in time – saved her life. Life should be a joyful adventure. But…Her relationship with her mother is at breaking point. She knows she needs to find her father. She’s missed so much that her friends have left her behind. She’s felt so helpless for so long that she’s let polls on her blog make her decisions for her. And now she barely knows where to start on her own. And then there’s Lennox. Her best friend and one time lover. He was sick too. He didn’t make it. And now she’s supposed to face all of this without him. But her new heart is a bold heart. She just needs to learn to listen to it . . .

What we say: “I simply loved this book. The subject matter was unusual and interesting. The way Stephanie Butland writes is engaging and entertaining. I was immediately drawn to the characters and compelled to keep reading.  It made me laugh and cry – the sign of a great book.

I would definitely recommend to a friend and have already passed it on to be read!”


The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae by Stephanie Butland is available from many good bookstores and online from Amazon.
