Andy Andrews begins "The Heart Mender" with a personal account, he finds "hidden treasure" in his backyard. Upon his discoveries, Andy searches the Internet for clues as to what exactly he has found and then his wife's wisdom leads him to talk with the "old people" in his town for additional information. From all of this comes the story of Helen and Josef.
Set in a time period of great fear and suspicion all around, this story will transport you back to World War II. Helen has lost her own husband due to war and while out walking on the beach late one night she sees a body of a solider. Disgusted by the sight of his enemy uniform Helen must make a difficult decision. Helen's heart leads her to do a noble thing and rescue this man, leading her on a path of second changes, forgiveness and new love.
This story will remind each of us to look within a person and not look merely on the outside and to also open our hearts and minds to second chances.
