The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel

HeartBetweenUs2The Heart Between Us is an adventure for the reader. Megan Jacobs received her much-needed heart transplant years earlier, but she is afraid to embrace her new life. At 32, she lives with her parents and cannot seem to move away from her pre-transplant life of fear. Her twin sister Crystal lives in New York and is trying to balance marriage, her career and deal with her resentments toward Megan.

All this comes to a head when Megan meets her donor’s parents. The parents let her read their daughter’s journal. Filled with bucket list type longings, it is the catalyst that moves Megan to step out of her comfort zone. She wants to see and do all the things on the list.

In a bit of a problematic scene, somehow Crystal not only decides to go with Megan, who she has hardly spoken to since the transplant. And she receives permission from her architect firm to take off and travel the world during a stressful time.

Crystal and Brian, her husband are also having problems stemming from her workaholic lifestyle. And Megan is trying to come to terms with the fact that her friend, Caleb wants to be more than a friend. Both ladies have some self-esteem issues. The guys in their lives are understanding, but also are realistic as they must deal with their respective ladies. I liked the fact that both the guys did not put up with much from the sisters.

Traveling the world to fulfill her donor’s bucket list, we are treated to a great adventure. Seeing the world through both Megan and Crystal’s eyes was a treat. The backdrop to the entire adventure was the story of faith and redemption told very well.

I would recommend this book. I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and Thomas Nelson–FICTION in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
