Why did I love this book?
Tales of enemies who become lovers – whether from warring families or rival gangs – are as old as Pyramus and Thisbe, Romeo and Juliet, and Tony and Maria.
Setting this story during an actual war heightens the tension. This book will draw you in from the start.
Josef Landermann sails aboard a German U-boat, hunting Allied supply ships in the waters of the Gulf Coast. Helen Mason is the embittered Alabama widow of a US Army Air Force pilot killed by the Luftwaffe. How Josef and Helen come together is a remarkable, enchanting true story.
Woven around themes of love and forgiveness, The Heart Mender is a thrilling page-turner that will touch your heart.
