The Beat Of My Heart
Once again I was completely engrossed in this second book of the Nantucket Legacy series. Big hearts that see people reigned. Family is important for some, but for others they prefer to try to rule the roost. “She was quite fond of her grudges, nursing them like little pets.” Grudges change us from open hearted to closed fisted and are best avoided.
Life was hard. People died. She “was gone from this earth, yet life carried on as if it were an ordinary day.” We feel that the world should stop turning when a loved one dies, but that is never the case.
