A Heartbeat Away.




The terror of war....
The carnage left on the battlefield...
The loss that tore hearts...
The pain that those who lived endured...
The fact that those who lived were changed...
The fear that "changed" meant unlovely and broken....
The truth that Love sees through all loss...
These themes are vividly depicted 
in S. Dionne Moore's book. 

   A love story set in the Civil War, between two vulnerable people, A Heartbeat Away tells the story of Joseph Madison and Beth Bumgartner. 
   He is a Rebel soldier, she is a nurse from a Union loyal family. They are left in the wake of the war that has etched its bloody horror on their minds and wounded their bodies with its weapons.   
   They are wounded souls, flesh and blood people in need of God's strength, peace and grace. 
As Beth pieces together the quilt blocks her mother gave her, and Joe heals from his wound, will they find that God's hope is a heartbeat away?  

Filled with memorable writing and characters you want to see healed and together, S. Dionne Moore's A Heartbeat Away tells a very good story. 

Thank you S. Dionne Moore and  Litfuse for my copy of this book! 

S. Dionne Moore's tagline is "Heart and Soul," and her writing is filled with both! You can learn more about her in this interview with Vannetta Chapman and the ACFW, and you can read a Character Spotlight of Beth Bumgartner here at Relzreviews.com
