The Heart of Memory

When beloved Christian writer and speaker Savannah Trover becomes gravely ill, she has to face the sham that her faith has become. Days before her heart transplant, she vows to change her ways and she renews her relationship with Christ.
But when she awakens from the surgery, Savannah discovers that her faith has left her completely.

Savannah's husband, Shaun, is concerned about his wife's odd behavior---and even more concerned about the secret he's keeping from her. If she doesn't bring down their ministry, then he might, losing his family in the process. A stranger may hold the answer to Savannah's recovery, but is Savannah strong enough to return to her old way of life?

Can Shaun right his wrongs before word gets out? And do either one of them remember how to be who they once were---or who they want to be?

In this latest relational drama from Alison Strobel, readers will explore the difference between emotional faith and life-giving truth as Savannah wonders if she can ever trust her heart again.


This book was a very interesting read and the subject matter was handled much differently than I expected.   Alison wrote about issues related to organ transplants in a way that I had never heard of before and it made me curious enough to go and do some further research.  I wasn’t prepared for the abrupt ending though; it caught me totally off guard and disappointed me a little.  I was so caught up in the story of Savannah and Shaun Trover that I wanted to find out more about their life and how things turn out.

This story is one emotional roller coaster that you won’t soon forget.   Shaun and Savannah Trover are characters that are very easy to relate to.  They are “real” and struggle with a crisis of faith, which many readers will be able to connect with.   On the outside, they are a Christian couple who has it all; the perfect marriage, perfect ministry, perfect life………..but behind closed doors things are not as perfect as they seem.

I will definitely be interested to see what author Alison Strobel comes out with next.   I found this book to be unique, interesting and a well-written Christian fiction title.
