In Every Heartbeat by Kim Vogel Sawyer - with my comments

About the Book: (from the publisher)

Three best friends, three cherished dreams, three searching hearts...

As three friends who grew up in the same orphanage head off to college together, they each harbor a special plan for the future. Libby Conley hopes to become a famous journalist. Pete Leidig believes God has called him to study to become a minister. And Bennett Martin plans to pledge a fraternity, find a place to belong, and have as much fun as possible. But as tensions rise around the world on the brink of World War I, the friends' differing aspirations and opinions begin to divide them, as well.

When Libby makes a shocking discovery about Pete's family, will it drive a final wedge between the friends or bond them in ways they never anticipated?

My Thoughts:

Okay readers, life has sort of interrupted, and I haven't finished reading this one yet. However, this has an awesome story line that promises to be very fulfilling. So far, the main characters are really tugging on my heart strings! To be an orphan is something I really can't comprehend, and it really does present some very real emotional challenges. Libby, Pete and Bennett all have unique challenges in their lives, not the least of which is that the U.S is about to be plunged into the first World War!!

Kim Vogel Sawyer is a very talented author, and I've never read one of her books that wasn't immensely satisfying. I'm looking forward to completing this one! I'm sorry I haven't got this finished in time for the tour, but so far - it's GOOD!!

I have this one waiting for me on my TBR shelf -- along with a number of other Kim Vogel Sawyer books. I've only read two so far but LOVED them both.
