Review: Keep Me In Your Heart


Title: Keep Me In Your Heart
Author: Lurlene McDaniel
Publisher: Ember
Publication Date: 
 December 28, 2010
Reviewer: Carissa

Summary: Three of Lurlene McDaniel's bestselling novels in one volume. Readers
will relate to the compassion and strength of the characters as they
piece their lives back together after tragedy strikes.

Letting Go of Lisa
Nathan Malone has been home schooled his whole life. He hasn't spent
much time with kids his own age, let alone dated. Now that his mother
is busy with his new twin sisters, he must enroll at the local high
school for his senior year. On the first day of school a girl catches
his eye. Lisa is a loner and doesn't care what anybody thinks of her.
Nathan is intrigued. When he and Lisa finally start spending time
together, he is the happiest he's ever been. But Lisa has a tragic
secret and when she decides to deal with it herself, Nathan has to
make a choice. Can he ever let go of Lisa?

Saving Jessica
Jessica McMillan and Jeremy Travino are a perfect couple. When they
met in high school, Jessica's upbeat spirit helped Jeremy to see that
there must be a reason he was spared in the car accident that killed
his brother. But now Jessica has been diagnosed with kidney failure.
Her only hope is a kidney transplant but no one in her family is a
match. Jeremy can't watch another person he loves die. He believes
that his life was spared so he could save Jessica by donating a
kidney. But his parents are terrified of losing their only child. Will
Jeremy go against his parents' wishes to do what he must to save
Jessica?

Review: This isn't the kind of book I usually read, but I really enjoyed this
3-1 book collection! These three novels all had two topics in common:
love/romance, and death/near death. Each of these stories made me cry,
especially Telling Christina Goodbye. By the end of it, I was all out
bawling! I could really touch the characters in these books, and share
their feeling. The writing wasn't spectacular, there wasn't any
similes or metaphors (that I noticed), but this book was well worth the time it took to read it.
