The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews



The Heart Mender is a beautiful love story, but it also details the ravages of war as innocent people were torn away from their loved ones. The story begins when the author Andy Andrews discovers some hidden artifacts from World War II buried in his yard. He begins a search to find out how and why the German war medallions and buttons ended up along the Gulf Coast.

A little known fact of WWII is that German subs were dispatched to the Gulf of Mexico, and their mission was to sink any US vessels that were destined to carry goods and fuel overseas for the US army. Cargo and dead bodies washing up on the shore of a quiet little town in the Gulf became all too common. One evening, a young woman walking along the beach discovers a wounded German sailor, and she decides to nurse him back to health. This is just the beginning of a fascinating story of war, faith and forgiveness.

This story spans several decades as the author discovers some fascinating evidence to prove his theory about the hidden artifacts. Andy Andrews is an incredible storyteller, and this book is a new favourite that I will definitely read again.
