No. I can't think of any other name better than Strong Heart. The title is perfect for the story.

Exactly. It is difficult to think of another name for this story. Maybe we should check with the author if he had any other titles in mind for this book.

Nice title but it could also be called Endurance.

No offense meant but this title sounds like a shoe company ad ?

I think the name suits the book perfectly.

I title is a good fit. But "A journey into into a mystery land" won't be far from appropriate for me.

This is also a good angle. I liked Sarah more than the plot.

Strong heart is just appropriate for the content. The author is good for what he does.

As regards the title, for a long time the title was "The Spear Thrower" because the atlatl was the piece that untied everything, but after a discussion with my publisher Ethan I agreed with him the title should be Strong Heart - in fact when he suggested it I instantly knew he was right. Then I wanted to call the series the Spear Thrower Series but again changed it to the Strong Heart series, because not everyone knows what a spear thrower is, and the name can be misunderstood or confuse people. Strong Heart is better. It seems you readers agree.
