The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews

The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews is a story of second chances. This little novella is full of so much history and surprise that I couldn't put it down! It's a true story (with some name changes) about a part of World War II that most people are unaware of and that happened right off the shores of our country.

Mixing past and present Andy Andrews meets people who lived through this time and weaves their tales into one story. A story of love, hope and healing. Andrews proves once again that he has a gift for the written word. This story should be read and remembered for its not only historical significance, but for the lesson it teaches on forgiveness and letting go.

About the book:
In the classic storytelling style of The Noticer and The Traveler's Gift, New York Times best selling author Andy Andrews now delivers an adventure set sharply against the warm waters and white sands of the Gulf of Mexico in WW II America.
Saddened and unable to abandon her resentment toward the Nazi war machine that took her husband's life, the young and attractive Helen Mason is living a bitter, lonely existence. Betrayed and left for dead, German U-boat officer Lt. Josef Landermann washes ashore in a sleepy town along the northern gulf coast, looking to Helen for survival.
The Heart Mender is a story of life, loss and reconciliation, reminding us of the power of forgiveness and the universal healing experience of letting go.

This book was provided for review by Thomas Nelson as part of their BookSneeze program. Ah-choo.
They also sent me a copy to give away.
