Amazon Description: I’ve made mistakes. Some of those mistakes have ruined lives, including my own.
Because of this, my past is something I have kept to myself, so when I found a woman who also wanted her past to remain hidden, it felt like the universe was pushing us together.
It turns out the universe had nothing to do with that.
If a person’s past doesn’t exist, the present may not unravel the way it should.
I found out the hard way, when I learned that my wife is not who I thought she was…living with a past I should know about. Her continuous self-destructive behaviors let me know she clearly has a plan—possibly one I never should have been a part of. I keep trying to save her, but she’s making it hard.
Now, both of our pasts have simultaneously rolled into the spotlight—colliding head-on, and causing the present to come crashing down on top of us.
I learned that since our pasts are part of who we are, they will always be the foundation of our present and our future.
The question I have is, will either of us walk away in one piece?
AJ and Cammy/Cameron are teenagers. She ends up pregnant with AJ’s child and informs him hours before the birth that she’s giving the baby up for adoption but not by her own choice. Her parents are forcing her to give the baby up. AJ is in the room for the birth. He has no say in the adoption as his name was never listed on anything and Cammy always told everyone she didn’t know whom the father was. She admitted it in the birthing room, one their daughter was born but it was too late. AJ walks out, mad at the world. Cammy is asked by the adoptive parents to name her and she names her Everything, Ever for short. There is a reason she named her this but I’m not going to spoil that part. In order to find out this reason, you’ll just have to grab the book and read it. 🙂 I promise you it is worth the price and definitely worth the time reading this emotion wrenching book.
Things come full circle but there is a LOT of stuff that happens in the thirteen years that Cammy and AJ aren’t talking or friends until she just pops up out of the blue one day.
A Missing Heart is AJ’s story. If you’ve read A Heart of Time then you’ve already met most of the characters that pop up in this book, except a few who are new. Just like A Heart of Time, A Missing Heart will slay your emotions. While reading this book I was laughing and crying, happy and sad and angry. Shari will put you through an emotional roller coaster with this book but what a wonderful roller coaster it is and definitely one that you should take a ride on.
I love Shari’s books. That’s no secret. She will kill you emotionally while reading a book before pulling all the pieces back together. Definitely give A Missing Heart and A Heart of Time a chance and read them. Read her other works if you love these books. I promise you’ll be addicted like I am!
