Publisher's Summary

Dr. Tori Taylor rules the operating room with a cold precision that makes nurses cower and her colleagues take notes. But even with her success as a respected surgeon, Tori finds herself alone in her moment of desperation - dying on her own operating table. Tori needs a heart transplant, but what she receives is far more than just a donor organ. Lying loveless and friendless in the recovery room, Tori experiences flashes of terrifying events she never witnessed.
Soon she leaves her controlled world and starts investigating a homicide only she believes happened. Is she hallucinating? Or will someone believe her in time to stop a murderer from killing again?

Many Layered Story of Faith and Healing

Rarely do I come across a book which combines medicine with faith. A Heartbeat Away is an excellent story of young surgeon, Dr. Tory Taylor's rise to fame as a top cancer surgeon, whose patients love her . . . and whose medical colleagues abhor. Dr. Taylor's treatment of the nurses and medical staff attending her patients has been demeaning, harsh and unprofessional. So much so that she has been placed on administrative leave. Following a virus that has ravaged her heart, Tory has to have a heart transplant, putting her on the receiving end of medical care. She is horrified that the nurses dread to care for her or even help her to the bathroom. Following her transplant, Tory begins a journey that will ultimately change her life . . . humbling, guiding, discovering . . . remembering . . . not only her own memories, but those of the person who gave her a new heart. This is an amazing story . . . mystery, faith, love and more. Can't wait to check out more of Harry Kraus' books.

Loved the story, but...

What did you like best about this story?

The story line was captivating. The mystery kept me guessing!

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator sounds like a 12 year old... Well, maybe 16. But she certainly didn't have the voice of a mature oncology surgeon. I found this VERY distracting!
