There are things I liked in this book but ultimately, it seemed to go the way of all Christian fiction I m not even entirely certain exactly what frustrates me so much about Christian fiction There are specific things I can point to in this book like Libby s constant unapologetic scorn of her roommate who, while clearly not perfect, doesn t get credited by Libby for her clear good intentions, or

fiction I m not even entirely certain exactly what frustrates me so much about Christian fiction There are specific things I can point to in this book like Libby s constant unapologetic scorn of her roommate who, while clearly not perfect, doesn t get credited by Libby for her clear good intentions, or the repeated certainty to know God s specific will and calling and thus not worry about circumstances, when in reality God s will and calling for a person are often revealed by circumstances as opposed to circumstances being ignored because of an individual s notions of what God s will is also I have a very low tolerance of cheesiness This one wasn t the cheesiest book, but it had its fair share Maybe what irks me most is how in Christian fic, characters pray and then everything magically works out Sometimes this happens, but often it just isn t realistic I guess what grates on me is the behind the scenes notion that God s ultimate goal for peoples present lives is to negate misery I like happy endings as much as the next person, but I think I agree with C.S Lewis when he says God doesn t necessarily want us to be happy, but rather to be lovable, with pain and suffering often used to make us lovable.2.5 Three and a half stars.In Every Heartbeat tells the story of Libby and Bennett who are orphans and Petey who was abandoned by his parents at a young age These three

the brink of World War 1, Bennett would join up in a heartbeat if war happens Meanwhile all three are in college, all on scholarships Despite their different outlooks they have a strong friendship that nothing can break Or can it I rarely have books sitting in my bookcase that have not been read But I found this one I d grabbed one day from the donations grab and go area of our library before it closed down I had forgotten it was on the shelf, until in desperation I was looking for something to read I wasn t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did It helped that I liked the main characters Libby and Petey I struggled a bit with Bennett Some of the other characters like Maelle and her husband Jackson, and Aaron and Isabelle who have a great influence on the young people in this story were well drawn too Of course there are others who are far from pleasant with bullying and egotistical attitudes Although it covers some hard subjects like abuse, I found this an easy read and one that ultimately is tinged with hope and positive attitudes One quote really struck me She d been too busy trying to make God fit her idea of what He should be Seems to me that line sums up a number of people s attitude toward God Yes, this book is very obviously written from a Christian perspective but I thought it all come across naturally and in keeping with the characters rather than in a tacked on preachy way, as sometimes happens Although this is book two as I found out later, it works fine as a stand alone A sweet, gentle story despite some of the sub plots and their themes, I enjoyed this one This book is the sequel to My Heart Remembers and features three of the original orphans in Isabelle and Aaron s orphanage Libby, Petey, and Bennett They are now old enough that the three have all headed off to college This was a sweet, tender story as Libby finds her way back to God, Petey reconnects with his family, and Bennett still struggles to find his place in the world With twists and turns, a beautiful love story, trials of faith, hardships, and misunderstandings all set on a college This book is the sequel to My Heart Remembers and features three of the original orphans in

reconnects with his family, and Bennett still struggles to find his place in the world With twists and turns, a beautiful love story, trials of faith, hardships, and misunderstandings all set on a college campus once again Sawyer has penned a wonderful historical read I would love to see onebook in the series featuring Bennett.Definitely recommended for readers of historical fiction
