A healing heart

A Healing Heart Now in Large Print and Audio! Contemporary Sweet Romance

 A Healing Heart is now available in audiobook   and hard cover large print!

A Healing Heart by Angela Breidenbach

A workaholic woman must trust her business
to the one man who tried to destroy it when she suffers a heart attack. Mara Keegan is an uber-successful mother and a widow of
three years. She’s been chasing success and all the “good things in
life” for her family to make up for the cruel whim God played on them by
taking her husband. In an effort to be the perfect mom, she decides to
make a photo memory quilt, a graduation present for her daughter,
Cadence.


She’s not yet finished when she experiences a heart
attack. While Mara recuperates, she revisits the choices she’s made that
led to this physically and spiritually broken heart. The memory quilt
must be finished in time for Cadence’s big day, but Mara struggles with
her burgeoning feelings for the man who must keep Mara’s business going during her recovery, Joel Ryan. Can Joel find his way into Mara’s heart and onto Cadence’s quilt?
