When a brilliant surgeon undergoes a heart transplant, her life transforms as she begins experiencing memories of a murder she never witnessed.

The residents worship her. Nurses step out of her way. Her colleagues respect and sometimes even fear her. But surgeon Tori Taylor never expected to end up on this side of the operating table. Now she has a new heart. Her life, previously controlled and predictable, is now chaotic. Dr. Taylor had famously protected herself from love or commitment, but her walls are beginning to crumble.

Where there once was a heart of stone, there is now a heart of flesh. And there is no going back.

    " This is a good book. Although completely unrealistic and far fetched, it's enjoyable and suspenseful. As with a ll books, there are parts that don't make much sense, but overall a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melmac MacDonald | 12/19/2013

    " Kraus is an excellent writer. He creatively weaves medical and fiction and Jesus all into one delightful read. I was a little apprehensive about this book initially but I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. Tori's journey of healing both physically and spiritually is beautiful. Watching her heart soften and begin to heal is truly inspiring. The story overall will keep you engaged with just enough mystery, just enough romance, and just enough story to keep you reading for hours. Hats off to Kraus for writing yet another delightful and inspiring read. "
