Billed as Christian fiction, I found this novel to be a 'heart-warming' story of talent, love and redemption. There were a couple sections which were a little preachy, but otherwise it was just descriptive writing, quotes about the heart from Shakespeare, among others, and a great plot. Highly recommended!
This is an excellant book. It truley is a book of the heart. Not only is it a great story but very imformative. Characters are wonderful, story line is great. One that will definatly pull on your heart strings!!! A must read.
I read this book for my monthly book discussion group and I was the only one of 8 women who did NOT enjoy the book. It tells the story of a little girl who is in need of a heart transplant. It is clearly designed to tug the heartstrings and offers a Christian message of hope and redemption. I felt that the author manipulated the storyline and was heavy-handed in directing the reader how to feel rather than allowing the reader the courtesy of reacting as the story unfolded. If you like Richard North Patterson's and Nicholas Sparks' writings, you will probably enjoy this.
This was such an awesome book. It was kind of hard to get into at the beginning but once it grabs you, it really grabs you all the way! Annie is the sweetest little girl who needs a new heart. Reese is a heart surgeon who because of something that happens in his life, no longer cares about being one. Its a great story of how Reese comes to help Annie in so many ways...and how she helps him too. I just loved it!!
Fantastic book about relationships, love, and the human spirit. The little girl is amazing and the story is heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time. Charles Martin has done it again! Great read.
