Reviews forA Heartbeat Away: A Novel
I've read many of Harry Kraus's books and this is quite possibly his best work ever. I'm amazed at the man's talent and his heart for God.Dr. Tori Taylor is a brilliant oncology surgeon but she is also arrogant and unfeeling toward those around her. Then her own heart fails and she needs a transplant. When she awakens after her transplant surgery, she experiences strange dreams, which quickly turn into harrowing nightmares. She comes to believe she is having the nightmares because she is feeling what her donor felt. She is troubled so much that she seeks help in understanding what is happening to her.From then on, Tori is on a roller coaster ride of intrigue. Whose heart does she have and what in the world happened to this person? Who wanted her dead?Harry Kraus takes the reader on a thrilling excursion into the world of cellular memory and delivers surprise after surprise, ending with one huge shocker that the reader never saw coming at all!Dr. Kraus is a surgeon in Africa and his desire is to ease suffering, both physical and spiritual, of his patients. His word amazes and humbles me and his books move me greatly. If you do not read this book, you will definitely be missing out. This reader will be forever buying any book he writes.read more
