A Heartbeat Away by Harry Kraus...

A Heartbeat Away

After being swept away one stormy summer evening by the disturbing, powerful tale of a soul's redemption that is An Open Heart, I knew I wanted to read Dr. Kraus' A Heartbeat Away!!!
David C Cook, because they an awesome publishing company that markets superb books, agreed to send me A Heartbeat Away, and I now have the pleasure of sharing my review with y'all.

In this book, the mystery goes far beyond the question "Who committed this crime?"
This time they question is "Why do I even remember the crime? Did this happen to me? Whose thoughts are these?"
After receiving a heart transplant, Dr. Tori Taylor is haunted by images in her dreams, and memories during the day, none of them she can place as her own. Did the new heart bring the thoughts with it?
How can Tori rid herself of these recollections and convince the police to investigate a murder that seems to exist only in her mind?

This story shifts back in time also, to trace the steps of a young couple whose lives will converge with Tori's, adding to the mystery and spiritual depth.

With connected subplots to follow, a provocative look at the cellular memory phenomena, and a strong story of spiritual transformation and emotional awakening, A Heartbeat Away truly encapsulates Harry Kraus' tagline: Grace From The Cutting Edge.

Thank you David C Cook!!!

  1. I had the privilege of reading an advance copy of this book for an endorsement, and think it's one of Harry Kraus's best. Glad you agree.
