    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Many Layered Story of Faith and Healing"

    Rarely do I come across a book which combines medicine with faith. A Heartbeat Away is an excellent story of young surgeon, Dr. Tory Taylor's rise to fame as a top cancer surgeon, whose patients love her . . . and whose medical colleagues abhor. Dr. Taylor's treatment of the nurses and medical staff attending her patients has been demeaning, harsh and unprofessional. So much so that she has been placed on administrative leave. Following a virus that has ravaged her heart, Tory has to have a heart transplant, putting her on the receiving end of medical care. She is horrified that the nurses dread to care for her or even help her to the bathroom. Following her transplant, Tory begins a journey that will ultimately change her life . . . humbling, guiding, discovering . . . remembering . . . not only her own memories, but those of the person who gave her a new heart. This is an amazing story . . . mystery, faith, love and more. Can't wait to check out more of Harry Kraus' books.

    Story
    "Good but difficult to follow"

    Love the medical aspect of this book and the organ donor subject. There were a lot of scenario's packed into this book so at times it made it hard to follow. At times almost unbelievable but I suppose that is why it is labeled fiction.

    I have read other books by this author and am actually reading another one now.

    The narrator was average not one that cross character gender easily.

    This is a good book I am just very stingy with my 5 stars.
