Katie has spent her entire life living in the shadows. It’s not because she wants to. It’s because she has no choice. Living with an overbearing and abusive father, she’s put up with quite a lot from him. In his eyes, she’s just a waste of space, something she’s unable to change his mind on no matter hard she’s tried.
An unexpected accident on the way home with her grandmother throws her life into further limbo. Her grandmother is now in the throes of pain, and her father blames her for something that wasn’t her fault in the first place. Nothing she can say or do will change his way of thinking. Not even her grandmother stepping in to take the brunt of his abuse.
Her only silver lining in the entire matter comes in the guise of the ambulance attendant, Adam. She’s drawn to him from the moment she sets eyes on him. Granted, she’s not even sure if he likes her in the first place. Never-the-less, she’s willing to hold onto a little bit of hope when it comes to Adam himself.
As her situation escalates, and her grandmother takes a turn for the worst, Katie soon realizes that life just got a little more difficult. Her father becomes far more disgruntled, and he’s intent on ruling her life with an iron thumb. Another chance encounter with Adam soon sets a chain-reaction of events into motion that she never saw coming. Refusing to fall prey to the pain and heartache she’s endured for so long, Katie vows to make the most of the situation at hand. Even if it means sacrificing certain aspects of her life in order to get to where she belongs – in Adam’s loving arms.
A bittersweet love story, Heartbeat is a tale that will definitely leave you wondering as to what happens next. Faith has penned a story that’s definitely a little controversial, but it’s one that slips into the deepest reaches of your heart by the time you get to the very end. Granted, the ending is one no one will ever see coming, but that’s the beauty of a good story. I look forward to seeing what comes next for this intriguing series.
