Raised in West Virginia's humble coal mining community, Gerald Morris now lives in Washington D.C. and is highly successful in all of the areas that matter. Education. Career. And marriage. Wholeheartedly in love with his wife Eleanor-a revered attorney with enticing good looks and a magnetic personality-Gerald couldn't be happier. Then a crisis occurs and he discovers Eleanor's darkest secrets, ones so troubling they threaten to change everything he's ever believed. When Eleanor's health crashes and she is forced to withstand a heart transplant, Gerald finds and begins reading her personal journal. Re-living their life together through Eleanor's shocking revelations propels Gerald onto an impossibly challenging spiritual journey that no good man as faithful as he should ever have to imagine. The Heart by Peter O. Knight is full of twists and turns and secrecies exposed and yet Gerald's story is not unlike any one person's whose faith has been tested by tragedy. Set against the backdrop of love and marriage, The Heart is a provocative tale of love, wickedness, turmoil, and challenges of faith. Literally, the heart is a vital organ, but what if it is not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually contaminated? With it's unimaginable events and inspiring message, The Heart is-without question-as enthralling and extraordinary as William Young's mainstream Christian novel, The Shack.

What I loved most was, because I read this on a brief recommendation, I had very little expectation and could really enjoy the plot turns and revelations because I was unaware of the general plot all together. When the main character, Gerald, learned something new, I could appreciate his feelings and concerns. And then somewhere along the way, I realized that I could truly see his heart and character in the writing. A sign of a fabulously written book!
While a light and easy read, this is one that will leave you pondering the many facets of the concluding pages and how they can be applied to our lives outside of a work of fiction, even though we may not parallel the main characters! Great work Dr. Knight. (and thank you for the bonus chapter!! I'm a reader that enjoys a great story, but likes a bit of closure that goes beyond the end of a book! Well done!)
Looking forward to purchasing several copies to give as Christmas gifts this winter!
