In Every Heartbeat: Book Review and Giveaway!

About The Book:

Three best friends, three cherished dreams, three searching hearts...

As three friends who grew up in the same orphanage head off to college together, they each harbor a special plan for the future. Libby Conley hopes to become a famous journalist. Pete Leidig believes God has called him to study to become a minister. And Bennett Martin plans to pledge a fraternity, find a place to belong, and have as much fun as possible. But as tensions rise around the world on the brink of World War I, the friends' differing aspirations and opinions begin to divide them, as well.

When Libby makes a shocking discovery about Pete's family, will it drive a final wedge between the friends or bond them in ways they never anticipated?

My Review:

I have been a fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer for a while now, having read a number of her books. As part of the Canadian blog review team for Graf-Martin Communications Inc, I recently had the opportunity to read Sawyer's latest release, In Every Heartbeat.

I absolutely loved this continuation of Sawyer's recent novel, My Heart Remembers! Not only does it includes beloved characters, Isabelle , Maelle, and Matt but also grown up characters, Libby and Pete. You also meet Bennett. These characters are all very well develop and I love the growth in friendship and romance that occurs in the book. The book is very well written with a number of surprises along the way. Faith in God is evident in this book, along with the themes of love, forgiveness, growing up, and importance of family!

If you are a fan of Sawyer's previous work, you will definitely enjoy In Every Heartbeat! I know I did! I highly recommend this book and it would be a great gift idea for the book lover in your life!
