Megan Jacobs always wished for a different heart. Her entire childhood was spent in and out of hospitals, sitting on the sidelines while her twin sister Crystal played all the sports, got all the guys, and had all the fun. But even a heart transplant three years ago wasn’t enough to propel Megan’s life forward. She’s still working as a library aide and living with her parents in her small Minnesota hometown, dreaming of the adventure she plans to take “once she’s well enough.” Meanwhile, her sister is a successful architect with a handsome husband and the perfect life—or so Megan thinks.

When her heart donor’s parents give Megan their teenage daughter’s journal—complete with an unfulfilled bucket list—Megan connects with the girl she meets between the pages and is inspired to venture out and check off each item. Caleb—a friend from her years in and out of the hospital—reenters her life and pushes her to find the courage to take the leap and begin her journey. She’s thrown for a loop when Crystal offers to join her for reasons of her own, but she welcomes the company and the opportunity to mend their tenuous relationship.

As Megan and Crystal check items off the bucket list, Megan fights the fears that have been instilled in her after a lifetime of illness. She must choose between safety and adventure and learn to embrace the heart she’s been given so that she can finally share it with the people she loves most.

About the Author

Lindsay Harrel is a lifelong book nerd who lives in Arizona with her young family and two golden retrievers in serious need of training. She's held a variety of writing and editing jobs over the years, and now juggles stay-at-home mommyhood with writing novels. When she's not writing or chasing after her children, Lindsay enjoys making a fool of herself at Zumba, curling up with anything by Jane Austen, and savoring sour candy one piece at a time.

Industry Reviews

'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 God'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 *
