"The Heart Mender" by Andy Andrews

The Heart mender: A Story of Second Chances
Author: Andy Andrews
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 9780785231035
Genre: Self-help, Motivational, Inspirational

While digging in his back yard, author Andy Andrews finds a rusty tin of Nazi German artifacts. After curiosity gets the best of him, he decides to do some research and find out more about it. The information that he uncovers is startling and becomes the background of this story.

Helen lost her husband during WWII. She is lost and angry because of her tragic loss. Josef is a German U-boat officer that washed upon the bank of the gulf shores, who Helen finds nearly dead. Her feelings of hatred make her want to leave him to die, but something changes her mind. Those feelings of hatred develop into feelings of friendship, forgiveness, then healing and love.

This is a beautifully written story told only the way that Andy Andrews can tell it. He delivers a very powerful message of forgiveness and what happens when we forgive. This is a story one should not miss and be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged. This is one story I will not soon forget. I highly recommend it!!!
