"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

The HEART MENDER BY Andy Andrews

A Story of Second Chances

I hesitate to write too much of a summary of this book, I had read the summary that came with the book, and the info on the screen when I ordered the book and feel I knew too much of the story before reading.  This book has a great story, message and impact if you just pick it up and read it without all the hype.

I will tell you most of the book takes place in 1942 during World War II, set in warm waters and white sands of the Gulf of Mexico.  It is truly a story of second chances and forgiveness. 
Andy Andrews is a wonderful storyteller, he first wrote and released this book under a different title several years ago that hardly made shelves in any bookstore.  He is now releasing it under this new title with a great publisher and some big fans from his other works, with the hopes of getting his story read by the masses.  He tells us on the first few pages that this story for the most part is true, the names and places have been changed because the people in this story do exist. If you are a history buff you may enjoy this book, if you like romance you may like this book, but if you love a good story you will love this book.

I agree with you about too much info in a book blurb. That has happened to me twice recently, and I think that both times it really hurt my opinion of the books.

I put this book on my wish list last week and am exicted to read it. Thank you so much for the chance to win it.
