Heart Like Mine, by Amy Hatvany

This is a very touching story of life, love and grief.  I think this book presents the unusual and difficult side of a second marriage perspective. The author did an excellent job to bring the reader in the meander and struggle of the heart of each of the characters.

Heart Like Mine

Publication Date March 19, 2013

Publisher book description:

From rising star Amy Hatvany, an engrossing new novel about a woman whose life is turned upside down when the man she’s engaged to suddenly becomes a full-time father to the children from his previous marriage.

Thirty-six-year-old Grace McAllister never longed for children. But when she meets Victor Hansen, a handsome, charismatic divorced restaurateur who is father to Max and Ava, Grace decides that, for the right man, she could learn to be an excellent part-time stepmom. After all, the kids live with their mother, Kelli. How hard could it be?

At thirteen, Ava Hansen is mature beyond her years. Since her parents’ divorce, she has been the one taking care of her emotionally unstable mother and her little brother—she pays the bills, does the laundry, and never complains because she loves her mama more than anyone. And while her father’s new girlfriend is nice enough, Ava still holds out hope that her parents will get back together and that they’ll be a family again. Review By Lara Moore, contact.
