Great Reading Feb 7, 2007
I just finished this book and was a great sequel to Rush of Wings. I liked Morgan's character in the first book (though brother Rick was better for Noelle's character than Morgan). He was just such a likable character even with his demons which he works through in "The Still of Night". I was a little disappointed that Morgan never really got to see or talk to his daughter except on the phone once but guess that made a different slant on the story. I also was a little disappointed that the romance doesn't get off the ground until almost the last page. I would have liked to have seen the last chapter explore that a little further although the epilogue covers the birth of their baby girl-okay what did they name her and also how did their marriage affect other secondary characters in the book-did she continue to teach? okay guess that leaves our imaginations or maybe another sequel is in order. This one picked up enough of Rick and Noelle's life (from A Rush of Wings)to know what was happening with them without dwelling on them too much. I enjoyed Rick's story and now Morgan's but almost the whole book is dwelling on Morgan's problems so would be nice to have a couple chapters of his life at peace. Some reviewers thought there was not enough spiritual emphasis in the 2 books especially the first one but for me it was a nice change from some of the Christian Novels I have read. The author puts enough in to know where our strength is and with God's indwelling the characters work through problems and can have peace. All in all a good book and my favorite so far of Kristen Heitzmann. You will definitely enjoy this book much more if you have read "A Rush of Wings" first.
Makes you think! Jan 30, 2006
This is a great book and very moving. It really makes you think and consider your choices. I love how it portrays the problems that men face over abortion, as well as women. I think that is very important and a book everyone should read!
The Still of Night Sep 30, 2005
It was a pleasure to read this book and the one preceding - to see how the characters intertwined. She brought you into the story in such a way that you felt each emotion. It was good to read a story where the characters struggled with life issues as well as their relationship with God. I am delighted to have found Kristen Heitzmann. This is the first time I have read any of her books and I look forward to more!
Another great book from Kristen Heitzmann!!! Aug 31, 2005
I just finished this book and I will definetely be reading more from Kristen Heitzmann! The story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. If you read "A Rush of Wings" also by Heitzmann, than you will already know Morgan Spencer, if you haven't you can still dive into this book. Jill Runyan and Morgan Spencer, highschool sweethearts, were torn apart by an accidental pregnancy and lies. They are reunited at their 15th highschool reunion.
Jill has just discovered that her daughter, Kelsey, who she gave up at birth, has leukemia. Kelsey needs a bone marrow transplant so her adoptive parents contact Jill as a donor. Struggling through the hearbreak and agony of not being a match for her daughter, Jill must now locate Morgan and tell him that he was lied to, that his child was not aborted, but she exists and needs his bone marrow in order to live.
Morgan was told when he was 18 that Jill, the love of his life, aborted their baby. He has lived with that belief for the past fifteen years. Today he is a very sucessful millionaire who has turned his back on God, and turns to alcohol way too often. Receiving the news that his daughter was not thrown away, but that she is in desperate need of his bone marrow, he hastens to under go surgery for the transplant.
The story explores love, forgiveness, prayer, and many other issues. You will no be disappointed after you read this book. It will make you want to go and read all of Kristen Heitzmann's books. Like I said earlier, you can read "A Rush of Wings" before you read this one is you want a better understanding of the characters. But you don't have to in order to enjoy this story.
A Typical Heitzmann Jewel! Apr 4, 2005
I love the humanity of Ms. Heitzmann's characters. They're not perfect and they don't necessarily learn from their mistakes - right away. The emotion and turmoil in this book definitely reflected normal human beings... always self-protecting and afraid to face the truth. But both characters learn, grow and flourish as individuals. Great book!
