With mounting hospital bills and Trumans penchant for gambling his savings, the situation seems hopeless . . . until his estranged wife throws him a lifelinethe chance to write the story of a death row inmate, a man convicted of murder who wants to donate his heart to Trumans son.
As the execution clock ticks down, Truman uncovers disturbing evidence that points to a different killer. For his son to live, must an innocent man die? Trumans investigation draws him down a path that will change his life, his family, and the destinies of two men forever.
Wiley's gambling additions, marriage problems, and self-loathing create an additional dynamic for Fabry's tale. Carefully weaving pieces of the mystery together with Wileys death-defying run from loan sharks, Fabry keeps readers guessing until the last possible moment. His conclusion takes a poetic turn, but leaves readers to deal with the loss of the character whose point of view the majority of the story is told from a huge loss after a huge attachment.
Readers can easily relate to Fabry's characters, who deal with deep issues. Wiley's journey to redemption takes the entire length of the book. His wife holds onto hope, refusing to divorce her husband. She gently pushes him toward Christ while fervently urging him to reexamine his life and make changes for the better, not to mention visit his son at the hospital every once in a while. Ultimately, Wiley's own sacrifices lead him to the one sacrifice with everlasting significance: that of Jesus Christ. Wiley's doubts opposition to Christianity are believable and relatable, as are his struggles with addiction.
Wiley's troubled relationships with his wife, son, and daughter draw the reader in. These are real people with real problems, fallen from grace, but brought out of the darkness by God. Beyond the enthralling who-done-it mystery, which Wiley and his daughter work to solve, the Wiley family transfixes readers with their gripping stories matched with Fabry's delightful and fascinating writing. Not in the Heart reaches into the depths of the human heart and comes out with a tense, thought-provoking and exciting read that successfully examines the human condition and provides hope and inspiration.
