Book Review and Giveaway: The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews

I absolutely LOVED this book! I thought it was very interesting that Andy actually found a tin can buried under the roots of a tree that he was digging up in his back yard. Inside the can he found what looked like buttons from a military uniform, a ring, a badge, and three pictures. One picture was of a man, woman, and a baby in a wagon. Another picture was of uniformed men on a boat with Adolf Hitler! Andy’s takes us along on his quest to figure out who the family was in the picture and how these items came to be buried in his back yard.

Andy Andrews is an excellent writer and did a wonderful job of researching, talking with the few now old-timers who had firsthand knowledge of what happened in the Gulf of Mexico in 1942-43, and re-telling this amazing story! It's a true story of love, mystery, action, suspense, and forgiveness. What I find very intriguing is that through his research he uncovers a closely guarded secret in history that all American's should know but very few do.

This book has it all—history, mystery, action, adventure, love, sorrow, and forgiveness! I think anyone would love this book!
