Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams.nbsp;She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.
And yet?how many women do you know who ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried.nbsp;She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale.
Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores, and errands, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christen women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.
But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live?the life she dreamed of as a little girl.
The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman.nbsp;A woman who is truly captivating.

A must read for men and women. Could not put it down. I have read Eldredges other books and highly recommend them - especially Beautiful Outlaw.

This is the only book that has made me cry. Very powerful, and every woman can relate to something in this book. I encourage you to read it!

A story about what it means to be a valiant and remarkable woman--and creating a God-driven future. "God," says Eldredge, "has written the Romance not only on our hearts but all over the world around us. What we need is for Him to open our eyes, to open our ears that we might recognize His voice calling to us, see His hand wooing us in the beauty that quickens our hearts." (p 115, 2005). A worthwhile read for both women and men alike.

An insightful look into God's original design for women. The best Christian living book I've ever read.

A must read for women. Stasi reached me as a fellow woman in ways I didn't even know were there. I laughed and cried and felt love and hurt that had long been pushed away. I am a better person and woman for having read this book.
