Couldn't put this book down. It is a must read for teens, adults, male & female. A great message of faith and hope in today's world that condones abortion and the killing of our babies. This book not only addresses it from a woman's perspective, but also a man's. It reveals the real truths about our society's way of thinking. If you've ever experienced an abortion, or know someone who has or is considering it, you will find hope and forgiveness here. A great inspirational and romantic story. The characters come alive when you walk with them through the decisions they make that will affect their lives forever. The outcome is a happy one when they trust in God. I especially like how the Angel showed Callie how her life would affect generations to come forever. i got so caught up in the story that I couldn't put it down. - Amazon Review

Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I loved the beginning, the twists and turns, and the ending.
Mrs. Hoopes did a lot of research on abortions and she placed appropriate Bible verses to answer characters questions. She organized her arguments well and wove together a tale with a mission. Even though there is an obvious point to this book, the story keeps us interested. More than once I wondered where it might be going.
I am already looking forward to Mrs. Hoopes next book! - Amazon Review
I couldn't put it down! It is a story about how even the smallest things we say or do can be used, by God, to effect great change on someone's life. It is a book about forgiveness, acceptance and most importantly love. I enjoyed the vibrancy of the main character, Callie Green and the way each character's life was intertwined with the rest. It will make you examine your own place in this world. - Stephanie B
Heartbeats is written from the heart. The the story weaves its way through the lives of "everyday" people as they encounter life-altering decisions that so many face in this day and age. I highly recommend reading "Heartbeats" - for insight and understanding into the hearts and minds of those often faced with monumental decisions AND the miracles that God can and will perform. - kathryn
This was a fast read and the characters were easy to connect with. As a Christian it is nice to have books, movies and music that fit the goal of living a lifestyle pleasing to God. I enjoyed the reality of the story and the facts that I learned thru out the book. - Michelle
