I was blown away when I read The Heart Mender: A Story of Second Chances. Author Andy Andrews claims this is his best book to date, I can say it is indeed one of the best books that I have ever read. When I started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it from cover to cover in one sitting.
The Heart Mender: A Story of Second Chances is a historical “fiction” book about war and forgiveness, love and espionage, the gulf coast and German U-Boats. I’ve lived on the Gulf Coast for 13 years and was immediately drawn into the imagery and story painted by the author. Even though this book is “fictional” in nature, Andy does a great job of drawing out several facets of forgiveness in this book. The people who will benefit most from this book are those who are dealing with anger and struggling to forgive.
The story line is set on the gulf coast during world war II and involves lots of action, romance, and mystery. I really don’t want to give away the plot, but I do want you to read the book so I included a video from the author below. You can also go the the official website by clicking here. There you can find all kinds of information about the book including a free PDF of the first few chapters! (But I warn you once you start reading, you won’t want to stop.)
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of The Heart Mender, the retail price is $18.99 (Hardcover), and is worth every penny. It is also available at places like Amazon.com for $12.91. I gave it five stars.
