My Review of Three and a Half Heartbeats by Amanda Prowse

MY REVIEW OF THREE AND A HALF HEARTBEATS BY AMANDA PROWSE.

Description

"Grace and Tom Penderford had a strong marriage, a comfortable home in the English countryside and a healthy baby girl, Chloe. They were happy. They were normal.

But soon after Chloe turns three, tragedy strikes when a disease called Sepsis claims the life of their daughter, devastating their small family.

The Penderford's had never heard of Sepsis - a cruel, indiscriminate disease that takes a life somewhere in the world every three and a half seconds. Now, with their world crumbling, they must mend each others broken hearts ... and try to save their marriage if they can.

To find out more about this tragic disease visit www.sepsis.org where you can learn to recognise the symptoms of Sepsis to help protect your loved ones.

All proceeds from the sale of Three and a Half Heartbeats on Amazon.com are divided equally between Sepsis Alliance, an advocacy group in the United States and the UK Sepsis Trust, so by buying the story, you will help them in their battle to raise awareness and save lives. Thank you for making a difference."

My Thoughts

This is honestly one of the most powerful, emotional books I have ever read. Grace's story, her desperation is so real and intense. Her pain just leaps from the page, grabs you and won't let go. Everytime Grace cried, I cried.

The subject of Sepsis is one I am familiar with and understand the horrific consequences of this illness. I am so glad this story will help bring awareness and may help prevent more families having to deal with its devastation.

Amanda Prowse is an amazing storyteller and had quickly become one of my favourite authors.

Freya Braithwaite knows she is lucky. Nineteen years happily married to a man who still excites her, two beautiful teenaged daughters, and her dream career as a health food writer. Her home is filled with love and laughter, with a passion for food at its very core.
