On My Nightstand - In Every Heartbeat by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Campus life proves more difficult than they expected. Fraternities haze the guys, while Libby's efforts to land a writing job with a newspaper meet with failure. Each friend fights to overcome the stigma of being an orphan. In Petey's case the issue of a disability adds to the drama.
Growth comes as they discover their own weaknesses and limitations. Only when they depend wholly on the One, who is a Father to the fatherless, do they find peace and purpose.
Kim Vogel Sawyer does a masterful job with this story. The universal themes of love, forgiveness, and fighting for the underdog resonated with this reader.
Plenty of chilly days and nights are still ahead. Curl up with some cocoa, tea, or coffee, and immerse yourself in this pre-WWI novel. You'll be happy you did.
