Losing Heart by Donna Brown

Publication Date: November 1, 2014
Genre: Psychollogical Thriller


"I hate you. I hate you with all of Sylvia's heart."

Helen has waited for months for the heart that will save her life. After reaching out to the grieving mother of her donor heart, Helen realises that a second chance comes at a price. The price, she soon realises, is much steeper than she'd ever have chosen to pay. 

There's more than one way to break a heart. There's more than one way to destroy a life...

This is truly a broken heart story full of emotions and family struggles.
From the beginning you know this is a family barely holding together.
Then what should be a wonderful thing - the emergency alert beeper goes off.

Helen has been waiting for a new heart to replace her failing one.
It is always bittersweet, knowing someone must die in order to get a replacement organ.
The emotions of the donor family will always be unpredictable, which is why anonymity is the best policy.
Is a new heart enough to repair a damaged family?

Helen reaches out to her donor's family but it is her husband Tom who opens the door to am extended relationship with Sylvia's mother, Marian. In fact, he never even asks Helen how she feels or what she thinks.

This is not a mystery. This is sheer horror.
It's appeal is in that it could be true.
Losing Heart is one of those books that, when you have finished, you sit back and absorb what happened.

I was given this book in exchange for my own opinions.
