Heartsight by Kay SpringsteenKatherine Tate
Contemporary Romance

"'Is there ever a right side of an IED to be on?"

Trisha has her hands full with packing up her late grandmother's beach house and trying to take care of Bella, her 6-year-old daughter with down syndrome.  If that wasn't enough, Bella has taken to wandering off on her own.  Luckily she is met by a neighbor - former Captain Daniel Conway.  Dan has had enough of the unsuccessful surgeries to restore the eyesight that was taken from him in an explosion in Afghanistan.  He has resigned himself to a lonely world of darkness - until his private world in interrupted by a runaway six-year-old.  Now he finds that his life is becoming full of a sweet little girl and her beguiling mother.  But what can a blind man offer to a woman who has enough concerns on her shoulders?

My Opinion: I truly enjoyed this book.  I must say when I first picked it up I thought the author was biting off more than she could chew with so many dynamics to the story, but she did a wonderful job with it.  The main characters are strong and plausible in their actions and emotions.  It was not a book that I had to pretend that it worked - it was compelling and realistic.  Though there are not many characters in the story, I fell in love with all of them.  The plot kept up a steady pace and kept me intrigued from beginning to end.  I would definitely recommend this book.

I received a free copy of this book for review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.

  1. I came from Cym Lowell's Book Review Party Wednesday.

    If you would rate it from 0 to 5. 5 being the highest and 0 the lowest, what score would you give this book?

  2. Hmmm...I don't really give books a number really. I'd say a 4 because although it wasn't a book that absolutely blew me away, it is a great book and I thoroughly intend to read it many times over.
