In Every Heartbeat
“In Every Heartbeat” by Kim Vogel Sawyer is about three friends who grew up together in an orphanage. Libby, Pete and Bennett are heading off to college and they all have big plans for the future. Libby wants to become a famous journalist, but she soon finds many obstacles in her way. She quickly realizes that nobody wants a female writing for them but that does not stop her from reaching her dream. Pete feels that God has called him to be a minister. He suffered from abuse as a child and wants to be able to help everyone he can by being a better person than his father was. Bennett is looking for a place where he fits in and also wants to have a good time while in college. These three friends are always there for each other but are many tests along the way. The biggest comes when Libby and Pete find themselves attracted to each other. But when Pete finds out his brother is in jail for murder and his mother and siblings need him, it brings all three closer to each other and God. I received a free copy of this book to review from Bethany House.
