Publisher's Description

Lindsay Harrel presents a powerful story of healing, adventure, and learning how to live life to the fullest.

Megan Jacobs always wished for a different heart. Her entire childhood was spent in and out of hospitals, sitting on the sidelines while her twin sister Crystal played all the sports, got all the guys, and had all the fun. But even a heart transplant three years ago wasn’t enough to propel Megan’s life forward. She’s still working as a library aide in her small Minnesota hometown and living with her parents, dreaming of the adventure she plans to take "once she’s well enough." Meanwhile, her sister is a successful architect with a handsome husband and the perfect life—or so Megan thinks.

When her heart donor’s parents give Megan their teenage daughter’s journal—complete with an unfulfilled bucket list—Megan connects with the girl she meets between the pages and is inspired to venture out and check off each item. Caleb—a friend from her years in and out of the hospital—reenters her life and pushes her to find the courage to take the leap and begin her journey. She’s thrown for a loop when Crystal offers to join her for reasons of her own, but she welcomes the company and the opportunity to mend their tenuous relationship.

As Megan and Crystal check items off the bucket list, Megan fights the fears that have been instilled in her after a lifetime of illness. She must choose between safety and adventure and learn to embrace the heart she’s been given so that she can finally share it with the people she loves most.

    This review was written for The Heart Between Us.
    Beautiful story showing how even while stressful circumstances can cause tension between siblings, there is hope to find the way back to each other. Each person in the story handles life in different and unique ways. I cried while reading this one. The author writes with great emotion and empathy. A story I will read again. I received a copy of this book from the author and this is my own personal honest opinion.

    This review was written for The Heart Between Us.
    A heartfelt contemporary story with a lot of hope, faith and romance!

    The unique plot of this story was quite interesting, incorporating the past journal entries with the current blog as Megan filled in her own experiences. There was a lot of depth to the story, especially as the sisters worked through their own relationship, and both began to heal. Their characters were developed well, and the author does a good job of describing what they are going through, especially Megan who has lived so long with a chronic illness. It was easy to understand her fears and anxiety about taking risks. I cheered her on as she seemed to grow in strength and wisdom. It was fun to imagine traveling to all the different places they went.

    Discussions of faith fit perfectly as the sisters both struggled with the past, and hoped to overcome the obstacles that came with it, affecting their current relationships and life direction. Both women realize they have lived in fear and have let it rule them, letting it rob them of the joy of truly living, something many of us can identify with if we are honest. Themes of forgiveness, trusting God when it doesn't make sense, learning to let go to truly love someone, are worked well into the story, as well as touching on difficult topics like sexual abuse.

    Readers who like a contemporary story with some faith, and realistic relationships, should enjoy this book.
