The characters lives, hearts and struggles will touch your emotions. This book includes the struggles of families trying to deal with life and death, how it can tear their families apart. There is corruption by a pharmaceutical company, doctors and others that participate in the illegal organ program. Add kidnapping, murder, solid friendships that are formed, the strong bonds of mothers coming together to save their children and a storyline that will grab your attention in the prologue and it's a page turners. I had a hard time putting it down. This book is the second in a series but can be read as a stand alone. It deals with issues that are prevalent in our world today.
I received this book as an ARC from Lisa Harris. All she asked for me to do if give an honest review. This book truly touched my heart, my emotions (yes I cried), and it truly is a page turner. It shows the strength of the characters, their flaws and their faith. There are other characters that you will love, some you will hate and others you wonder how they can call themselves human. Yes, there is romance and strong friendships that are formed between the characters. One researcher that is a nerdy hero. Also, he's a secret writer with a hero that is everything he wishes he was. He will definitely bring a smile to your face.
I gave Ghost Heart a five star review because it touched me in so many ways. I only give 5 stars to books that either touch my heart, bring tears, laughter or are page turners. This book is all of that and more. One of the best books I've read in a very long time.
Kelsey Taylor is five years old, and needs a heart transplant stop urgently. Her mother, Catherine, is prepared to do anything to save her daughter. Even going to Africa to for a heart transplant. The only way she save her daughter is to ask her father for help—which could destroy her relationship with her husband.
Mia Kendall is a heart surgeon in the public hospital in Tanzania. She finds her heart transplant patients are dying. But the transplant patients from the nearby private hospital not. She's suspicious. What is happening? Is there a problem with her surgical methods? Her post-operative care? Or is there a problem with the transplant organs?
Jeme is a Tanzanian wife and mother. Her husband has recently had a heart transplant, but he's sick again. And she's trying to protect her daughter—an albino, at risk of being kidnapped and murdered by hunters for her white skin and blue eyes. Unfortunately, this part of the story is based on fact. Albinos are considered cursed, yet at that same time, their body parts are considered good luck charms.
Ghost Heart focuses on the people who are trying to save lives. Catherine and Jeme, trying to save the lives of their daughters from two very different threats. Mia, trying to save her patients, and to make up for one mistake long ago. Organ transplant pilot Race Daniels, trying to save lives to make up for the two he couldn't save.
It also highlights the tragedy of our modern medical system, and the way it favours the haves over the have-nots. Those who have insurance or money or who live in a country with a good public health system vs. those who don't. The tragedy of transplants—the fact one person has to die in order for another to receive a new heart. The tragedy of greed—that where money is involved, someone will find a way to get rich at the expense of others.
The novel is suspense from start to finish, with several unexpected twists. Don't do what I did and start it when you should be going to bed! Recommended for all medical suspense lovers.
