The Heart Mender: A Story of Second Chances by Andy Andrews is a story about a young woman who lives in America during WWII. It's a story about a young man in the German navy. This is a story about intrigue, suspense, hope and possibly love. Helen Mason and Lt. Josef Landermann lives will never be the same.
This is a great read. I enjoyed meeting Helen Mason and learning why she is a bitter young woman. And Lt. Josef Landermann is a young man that would have made any German momma proud. The author, Andy Andrews did a wonderful job in creating an intriguing story that was different from most historical stories. Helen and Josef dealt with broken heart issues that needed to be healed.
There was enough twists in the plot to keep me reading. I wanted to know what happened next. The overall story is intriguing, inspiring and definitely makes me want to delve deeper in my own faith. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in historical stories, books of intrigue, something hopeful, well, just everyone!
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of the BookSneeze.com
Ok, here is a real twist... I have an extra copy of The Heart Mender and I would like to give it away. So, I am going to have a drawing! Hmmmmm..... What kind of drawing? I know, everyone who leaves me a comment saying they are following me on Twitter and Google Friends or Networked Blogs will be entered in the drawing. I will then throw your names in a "hat" and pick one, with my eyes closed.
Be sure to add your email address in the comment box so I can email you to let you know you won and request your snail mail address at the same time. When you do leave your email address put it in a format that will be hard for spammers to read, such as email(at)address(dot)com..... well, you know what I mean.
The drawing will begin today May 5, 2010 and will end June 13,2010. That way anyone who would like the chance to enter the drawing will have an opportunity to do so.
This would make a great gift for a graduate or even a father. Men would enjoy this book, as it's not too "girly."
