Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
~ Proverbs 3:3 (NIV)
Forty years after meeting, falling in love with, and marrying Dust Off pilot Seth Martin then losing him when he’s declared MIA during the Vietnam War, Evangeline “Vangie” Martin decides it’s time to move on. After having Seth declared dead, she heads to a mountain resort for her fortieth high school reunion, hoping to reconnect with her high school sweetheart. But fate has other plans. The resort caretaker is none other than her husband, but with no memory of his life before being shot down. When he refuses to acknowledge his true identity, Vangie must make a decision: If she is to have the love she’s waited for so long, she must forget the past and accept Seth as he is now. But can she?
“Deeply moving and thought provoking, The Heart Remembers takes readers on a journey of the heart that will be with them long after they put the book down. With characters you can’t help but care about, Michele Huey weaves a story of intrigue, faith, and—most importantly—love. A delightful read.” (Robyn Whitlock, reader and critique group member)
“Michele T. Huey has created a compelling, complex character in Vangie. Your heart will break for her and rejoice with her. Kudos to Huey for setting her novel in the context of the Vietnam War, which is all too often ignored in women’s fiction.” (Melanie Rigney, author, Sisterhood of Saints)
“More than a novel, The Heart Remembers is a compelling witness to the power of love and a God who never forgets our deepest longings. This story takes root and grows true faith.” (Virelle Kidder, conference speaker and author of six books, including Meet Me at the Well and The Best Life Ain’t Easy)
“A riveting love story that spans forty years and two continents, readers of The Heart Remembers will find themselves cheering for nurse Vangie and Dust Off pilot Seth as they fall in love in Vietnam, shouting ‘finally!’ when Seth proposes, and reaching for a box of tissues when Seth’s helicopter is shot down and he is declared Missing in Action, just as Vangie learns she is pregnant. And that’s when the story is just getting going! A twist of events forty years later kept this reader asking for more. Romance, heartbreak, laughter and suspense, all rolled up in a book that is guaranteed to keep the reader turning pages into the wee hours of the morning.” (Kathleen Deyer Bolduc, author of three books, including The Spiritual Art of Raising Children With Disabilities)
