In Every Heartbeat
In Every Heartbeat by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the story of three friends who grew up together in an orphanage and head off to college together.
Libby's goal is to be a famous journalist. Petey plans to be a minister. And Bennett wants to pledge a fraternity, find a place where he belongs and have all the things he felt he missed out on growing up.
As the country surges towards World War I tensions are high and opinions are strong. As the friends leave the small, enclosed world of the orphanage and enter the college campus they are pulled apart physically, for the first time in a decade the three friends will live close, but not in the same building, and emotionally. New friends are made, new desires are expressed and wants and longings are within reach.
As the friends struggle to stay together, Libby makes a discovery about Petey's family that threatens to tear them all apart. Or will it bind them together forever?
A wonderful book that was hard to put down. Well worth reading.
