Andy Andrews has a way of weaving fact and fiction together to make a very readable and enjoyable book. This book shows the power of forgiveness and second chances. Wonderful story of the best of people and the worst of people. It tells of how a young woman helped a man whom she thought to be her enemy but because of her actions became so much more to her. Without revealing too much of the story line, it shows that we never know when we have the opportunity to change a life forever, maybe even our own.

I just downloaded this book in english. I started to read it and at the very begining I discovered that it had been published before under the name of Island of Saints. I had read Island of Saints a few years ago and enjoyed it very much but did not want to read it again under the name of The Heart Mender. I called Barnes and Noble to tell them what happened. They admitted that this was true but refused to give me a refund because I had already downloaded the book. I tried to tell them that downloading the book was how I found out that it had been released before under a different name. I am sure Barnes and Noble makes enough money that they do not need my $10 AGAIN. My review of the book is good but Barnes and Noble gets zero stars. I wish I had bought a Kindle so they couldn't get any more of my money!

Andy Andrews' The Heart Mender is an inspiring story about the power not just of love, but of forgiveness, community and faith. Intertwined with the love story of an American woman and a German soldier during World War II (and with the stories of their friends and neighbors) is a bit of the author's own story, as he uncovers the clues that lead him to discover the romance. Andrews is a skilled storyteller, and weaves dialogue and description to create vivid and believable characters. The issues with which the characters struggle are real, and the answers to which they come are hard-won - but throughout the book is a firm and unyielding hope and confidence that love will, in the end, triumph. From beginning to end, the storylines illustrate the truth that bitterness and resentment do nothing but continue to wound, while making the choice to forgive can do everything towards bringing healing and hope to a broken heart. One of the things I most appreciated about this story is that while it is a love story, it doesn't happen in isolation. It blossoms in the context of a community, and affects - and is affected by - that community. I love that. It makes the entire book feel even more true - because in real life, relationships do inevitably happen in the context of community. I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I especially appreciated the "forgiveness " aspect. Who are we not to regive, when the Lord forgave our sins and died on the cross for us. My book club gave this book on average a 9 out of a 10 top rating.

I really enjoyed this book. The historical accuracy was certainly a plus. I loved the learning how to forgive lesson and how eventually love was able to blossom through all the pain. Good certainly triumphs over evil.

I just don't think you can go wrong with Andy Andrews. My daughter (17) and I both devour every book of his that we can get our hands on!

I thought book was an incredibly easy book to read with a heart warming message. I connected with the characters and laughed and cried along with them. Andy Andrews is a writer that everyone can read, and everyone will enjoy. If you enjoy this book, also check out Andrew's "The Time Travler's Gift." Enjoy!

It is difficult to classify this book, but it is easy to call it excellent. Andy has done it again. He takes truth and mixes it with imagination and weaves them into a story that reads like a novel but feels like an autobiography. It is hard to describe the book without giving away some of the wonders of the story, and I'll not be guilty of writing a spoiler. This is a wonderful, heartwarming book. Read it, you will be pleased you did.

I really enjoyed reading The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews. In typical Andy Andrews style, he has you from the beginning in an engaging story with a great lesson about life. In my opinion, one of the key skills to learn in life is how to forgive and Andy masterfully covers that skill in this great book. I highly recommend this book!
