Intertwined

GIVEAWAY

SLATTERY, JENNIFER
INTERTWINED

Abandoned by her husband for another woman, Tammy Kuhn, an organ procurement coordinator finds herself in an altercation with a doctor. Now she is fighting to keep her job and her sanity when one late night she encounters an old flame facing an unthinkable tragedy. Because they both find eternal purposes in every event and encounter, they soon discover their lives are intertwined but the ICU is no place for romance....or is it? This could this be where life begins again.

My Review:

Slattery sure knows how to put the real into realistic fiction. This book packs more than one emotional wallop that left me gasping for breath a time or two. And spitting-nails mad. My tummy was tied in knots the whole read. A gritty novel that explores some pretty harsh realities. But the story isn't without hope and the author does an exceptional job of sharing the power of Christ's redeeming love. Never preachy, there is still a relentless witness woven into every scene. And what I really love about this book is that while Tammy and Nick are Christian they are by no means perfect. They struggle with their own brokenness and sometimes it's messy. Watching them stretch and grow helped me assess and even re-evaluate some issues in my own life. An intense read that has the potential to spark great discussions in a book club.

My thanks to the publisher and author for supplying me with a copy of this book.

    1. Exactly -- and I learn so much more from them since I live through their growing -- does that make sense? Anyway, really good read. Good luck, rubynreba.

  2. Books should be about people who aren't perfect and struggle with decisions whether big or small.

  5. To quip a comment I made on a different book for a different book review site that so fits this one as well: "I love a book that deals with the messy-ness of real life....and when the author handles it with the Grace & forgiveness that Christ offers us! This sounds like the perfect read to rock my little world a bit"

    Fits perfectly with my variety of book tastes :-) Thanks for the chance to win a copy of "Intertwined" Kav! Sounds like we have the same love for these kind of stories!
