Rand is the town's doctor and has been through a lot. He's had his eye on Rachel Boyd for a long time, but she's made it clear that she doesn't want to have anything to do with him. When one of their friends begins to have heart troubles, they need to team up to try and make him better.
Rachel's husband died and she's unwilling to risk her heart again. She looks at Rand through glasses that are tainted by memories of her father. While it's unfair, the more time she spends with him, the more she has to admit that he may not have as much in common with her father as she believed.
These two both have fears they keep close. Rand is deathly afraid of the dark, and with good reason I might add, and Rachel doesn't want to go through the pain of losing a spouse again. They're going to have to overcome their fears to be together, especially Rachel.
The first book, From a Distance, was about Daniel and Elizabeth. They both pop up in this book, as well as the characters from the second book, Beyond This Moment. James and Molly are the main characters in that one and show up a lot as well, especially James since he's Rachel's brother. You can read these out of order, but there are hints of things that have happened in the other books that I didn't remember.
Within My Heart has depth. Both in the characters and in the main story line - as well as a few other side story lines that make this book a rich and satisfying read.
It is a very emotional book. About love and death - and trusting God to have the best plan for you - instead of holding so tight to your own plans, desires, and fears.
Tamera Alexandra is a very gifted writer who has the ability to weave different people's situations into one book - and makes you feel like you know these people.
I highly recommend Within My Heart. But you should read the other two in the series first, From a Distance, and Beyond This Moment because many of the characters are tied together from the very start. Reading the other two first will give clarity to some of the situations that play out right to the end of book number 3.
Very well done - and worth your time to read.
Again Alexander approached a serious subject and handled it respectfully and delicately. I am so impressed with her ability as an author to be able to craft such serious and believable stories without leaving me in a deep depression by the end. Instead she allows us to see God's hand in every situation, what might have been tragic turns into something to rejoice over. I think that speaks volumes about Alexander's personal relationship with God. Wouldn't it be great if we could always see God's hand working for good in a bad situation like she does?
I would recommend this entire series to anyone. If you do want to read this book, I would encourage you to start with the first book in the series, From a Distance.
