The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesThe Heart Mender (A Story of Second Chances)
by Andy Andrews

This book is an endearing tell based on real events, what you would call historical fiction. A German sailor from 1942  finds himself washed up on the Florida coast. What follows is a beautiful but short story of who finds him and how relationships can cross all sorts of barriers, plus a bit of adventure thrown in. Surrounding this tale is a separate one, which tells of the finding of  relics and uncovering of bits of the truth, that help tell the historical parts.
While not extremely deep or developed I still highly enjoyed the story. I was also able to share it with my eleven year old daughter who liked it as well. I would recommend this book as a quick read to anyone looking for some enjoyment that is fairly wholesome and uplifting.

Thomas Nelson provided me with a complimentary copy of this book, plus one to give away to one of my readers! Just leave any comment on this post and I will pick a winner randomly after I close comments on August 31st. For an extra entry blog about this giveaway and link back to me, leave a link to your post in your second comment.
