Testing the Heart follows the struggle of an urban high school teacher who is determined to rescue students from life on the drug-ridden streets, salvage her school from being deemed a failure, and save herself from the enigmatic man who distracts her from her purpose. Filled with diverse characters, humorous moments about life in the urban schools, and all-too-true predicaments that education faces today, this story takes Penelope Parsons from traditional educator to a rebel with too many causes. She must decide how to tackle each seemingly insurmountable challenge in order to make things better for her students, her profession, and herself. She is willing to face down the principal, her colleagues, and even her mysterious lover, Jonathan Perez, to ensure her success.
