In Every Heartbeat by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the story of three college students who have been friends since they lived together at the same orphanage. Now all grown up, they are students on the same campus, all following different paths. Libby is pursuing journalism, Pete is studying to enter the ministry and Bennett's only plans are for right now-the fun he can have while on campus. They try to keep their friendships tight, but are being pulled apart by those around them and by the tensions of a country on the verge of entering the first World War.
One thing that keeps them close is the fact that they are all orphans and are all searching for answers to their pasts. Sometimes the answers aren't what are expected, as they soon find out. And some paths traveled are sometimes better left untraveled.
This will appeal to readers who enjoy not only historicals but also romance and mystery. There is a strong Gospel message included. This book was a quick read, sometimes it left me feeling a little under-whelmed. Fans of this author won't be disappointed.
