In Every Heartbeat by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Three friends who grew up in the same orphanage go off to college to pursue their dreams for the future. Libby aspires to be a famous journalist, Pete is called to become a minister and Bennett just wants to fit in, be accepted by a fraternity and have fun. Making friends and finding their own place on campus is the main driving force at first. Gradually they each begin to pursue their own interests outside of campus. Libby begins to write romance stories for a women's magazine, Pete seeks out his birth parents to confront them about throwing him out of their home at a young age and Bennett bears his resentment that he will never measure up to Pete and Libby.
Libby and Pete's quests cross paths when Libby finds out that a young boy is to be executed for a crime that she believes he did not commit. This boy turns out to be Pete's brother. Many problems arise as the story continues and Libby wakes up to the fact that God loves her and she has an awakening to His love. I don't want to reveal too many plot lines. The book is well written and you will just have to read it yourself. There really is so much more to this story and well worth reading.
This book was provided to me free, to read and review, by Bethany House Publishers.
