Product Description

Tessa Young, an up-and-coming landscape architect who specializes in the design and creation of labyrinths, has immersed herself in the mythological, spiritual, and healing aspects of the elaborate structures. She also is searching for God and hoping to make sense of the nightmares that have plagued her since childhood. When Smith Chandler, an estranged colleague--with whom she'd half fallen in love a dozen times before catching herself every time--calls to propose a project he claims is the opportunity of a lifetime, she reluctantly agrees to check it out. Smith is reconstructing a pre-Revolutionary War abbey for wealthy clients. Among its remarkable features is an overgrown labyrinth. Unable to resist, Tessa accepts his offer to work with him. Soon she is immersed in the project of a lifetime. But one evening, after weeks of work in the labyrinth, Tessa and Smith are attacked. While protecting Tessa, Smith is stabbed, and the nightmare begins...again.

“Then you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”—John 8:32

The Edge of Recall, like Kristen Heitzmann’s other novels, invites the reader beyond the often predictable storyline of Christian fiction into a world of mystery, intrigue, and romance. With unique characters and plot twists that keep the reader engaged and guessing, The Edge of Recall is one of her finest suspense novels yet.

Tessa Young, a talented but troubled landscape architect, has built her career by constructing elaborate gardens and meditative labyrinths for the rich. While these labyrinths are her passion, they are also tied to her recurring nightmares and the fragmented memories of her past, which she can’t forget or comprehend. When Smith Chandler, a college acquaintance with whom her friendship was bitterly ended, reappears in her life, she’s ready to slam the door in his face—until he offers her the project of her dreams. Given the opportunity to reconstruct a colonial-era labyrinth, she can’t say no. Yet, beneath the labyrinth lurks a secret which changes Smith and Tessa forever.

Heitzmann’s cast of characters is real and inviting. Tessa, in particular, is a character whom many female readers will find a kindred spirit. Like so many, she is crippled by her fear of rejection. Yet, she remains a successful and compassionate woman, as well. Smith is an amiable Brit recently recommitted to God and baffled by Tessa’s unpredictable temper. Beside them stands Smith’s charming co-worker Bair, an ex-rugby player paralyzed by the thought of a date. Cast against them is the odious Rumer Gaston, a casino owner with plenty of money, but deficit of humanity. With swift-moving and witty dialogue, Heitzmann brings each of her characters, good and bad, to life, evoking tenderness, humor, and fear. Through the relationships between the characters, Heitzmann touches on the importance of love and forgiveness, commitment and trust.

The novel’s setting dances from Maryland to Nevada to Colorado, each setting splashed with local color. Readers are invited to savor southern crab cakes, bask in a luxurious casino, and rest in the Rocky Mountains’ embrace. Heitzmann never lets her readers get bored but provides a winding plot and an emotional journey that keep the pages turning. The Edge of Recall offers spiritual encouragement along with suspense as each of the main characters unfolds in his or her understanding of God. Heitzmann does an excellent job of showing through her characters how large the gap is between believing in “a god” and having an intimate relationship with Christ.

One of the novel’s most prominent themes is the importance of truth. Because of the ambiguities of Tessa’s past, she is unable to love or trust. It is only after she uncovers the reason for her recurring nightmares and her father’s disappearance during her childhood that Tessa is free to live. Smith must experience a truer revelation of God’s love before he finds his heart complete. Heitzmann subtly and skillfully weaves a story that reflects God’s redemptive heart and abilities. The Edge of Recall will draw a sigh of contentment when the last pages flutter shut, making it more than worth its price. -- Lauren M. Peltier, ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This was the first book digital book I have purchased and I have truly enjoyed it. I was considering purchasing a Kindle but found there really is no need. I am perfectly content reading from my laptop. It was easy to locate where I left off with the easy to use digital bookmark and Kristen Heitzmann, one of my favorite authors, did not disappoint.
