'. . . Harrel's book, with many descriptions of delicious foods and famous landmarks from around the globe, will please readers of travel fiction looking for an inspirational story.' (Publishers Weekly)
'There is so much to love about Harrel's charming new novel, and it touches the heart in a way that will likely leave the reader gushing over it!' (RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, TOP PICK)
'Narration by both Meg and Crystal, full of emotion and soul-searching, will resonate with anyone who has struggled to see another point of view. Both characters are drawn as independent and persistent, occasionally to their detriment, but not too stubborn to get past stumbling blocks. Harrel's second novel is a charmingly gentle read that will please those who enjoy faith-based, hopeful fiction with a delightfully positive tone.' (Booklist)
'Faith and religion are well integrated into the story to provide an uplifting message of hope, optimism and courage.' (USA Today Happy Ever After)
'Harrel's second book is a well-crafted, compelling story about love, hope, relationships, family importance, and Godand rsquo;s trustworthiness.' (CBA Market)
'A tenderhearted story of second chances, Harrel's sophomore effort pairs expressive language with well-drawn characters and will attract admirers of Laura Frantz and Melissa Tagg.' (Library Journal)

Lindsay also pens some great scenes revolving around the sisters' bucket list trip. Ireland, London, and Paris were my favorite destinations, but Pamplona became the impetus for some desperately needed clearing of the air, so I enjoyed that as well. Macchu Picchu got the trip off to an interesting start, in that what happens to Megan is unexpected and certainly not what readers would want to happen to them.
The subplot with Megan's donor Amanda is touching and wrenching at the same time. Kudos to Lindsay for tackling some subjects that, especially in Christian fiction, remain taboo. I wanted to see a bit more of Amanda's journal and plotline as she moved toward healing.
In fact, the plot of The Heart Between Us is often pretty sketchy. It feels like Lindsay goes to one destination, stays there for a few minutes, and then boom! We're off to the next place, the next event, without much depth. She describes some destinations, like Australia, with admirable effort, but I didn't get the sense of truly being there during any part of the book. I also felt that with a few notable exceptions, such as the Notre Dame scene, I was told about character growth. I saw it through a camera lens, not as an invested participant in the story. Maybe Lindsay just tried to tackle too much, too fast.
Overall, The Heart Between Us is an admirable first effort, and I think Lindsay will improve. I'm looking forward to her next book, The Secrets of Paper and Ink, this winter.
