Overview

On a secluded beach in North Carolina, three lonely people find hope in each other.

Trish Evers is an artist and single mother, who has inherited her grandmother's Bed and Breakfast in a North Carolina coastal town. Though she must sell the house, she decides to bring her daughter to the beach for one last summer vacation in her childhood town.

Bella is a six-year-old girl who has Down syndrome. Rejected by her father, Trish, is the only parent she's ever known. Bella likes to explore the beach and has a tendency to wander off. One day, Bella goes exploring on her own, and Trish finds her in the company of an intriguing stranger.

Dan Conway is a U.S. Marine, who had been born into a family of Marines. Now blind as a result of combat injuries and unable to "suit up," he feels he no longer has a purpose in life. He's come home to the beach, where he spends his days in solitude. Dan must learn to believe in himself and to love life again, which he begins to do through his interactions with Bella and Trish. When a hurricane strikes, and Bella wanders off again, her only hope for rescue is Dan.

Working within the confines of his blindness, he must overcome his fear of failure and recall his training in order to search for the little girl and bring her to safety.

    Wonderful, beautiful love Story

    It's not often you are treated to the perfect love story, beautifully written. Here it is, Heartsight. It has everything, drama, love, conflict, humor and above all warmth. No, it doesn't have steamy sex but the sexual tension in this story could start three fires simultaneously! I fell in love with the hero, Dan, a blind Marine, right from the start. Bella as the charming, challenged child and Trish, her over-protective mother, won me over immediately. If you don't read any other love story, be sure to read this one. Absolutely the best.

    Good storyline with believable characters!!!

    Review by Karen:
    Heartsight is a fabulous story. It is very well written with nicely developed and believable characters. There's a good storyline, with an even pace that encourages you to keep turning the pages. I fell in love with Dan, Trisha and Bella; each one of them was very special. I didn't like Trish's ex-husband, though. But you can decide that for yourself when you read the book.

    Heartsight is an easy and fun read - I absolutely loved it! I read it in one sitting because I just didn't want to put it down. I believe all readers who love romance will want to add this book to their library.

    Quote: While not a quote, this really touched me: He felt the smile tug his lips upward and realized he'd just handed his heart to a six-year-old for safekeeping.
