The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews - Copy Available

I was introduced to by Matty on her blog Lazy Bee Farm. Receiving free books in exchange for a written review sounded like an interesting proposal. So I joined up and just received my fourth book to read and review. I selected The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews because I love historical fiction and this one sounded so interesting. From the cover:

“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 WWII America.

Saddened and unable to abandon her resentment toward the Nzi 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.”

I am anxious to get started reading this story. And if you think you’d like to read it, too, send me an email telling me so at Booksneeze (Thomas Nelson Publishers) has given me an extra copy to give away on my blog. As I really don’t have a ton of blog readers; nor is this something I’ll be doing regularely, I’m using a simple sysytem of gathing emails from those of you who might be interested in having a copy of this book. On Saturday, May 15th, I’ll drop them into a basket, stir them up and then have Jim draw one out. So if you want to be a part of this drawing, send me an email and let me know. (If you want to link this post to your own blog for your own readers, feel free - but it is not required for entry.)

I'll be reviewing this book here when I have finished it.
