When I first started this book, I wasn't quite sure what I would think of it by the end...but I ended up loving it!
Five bleeding hearts struggle to mend despite their pasts that threaten to bind them in pain and heartache.
Bleeding Heart brings the most unlikely of characters together, each with their own hurt, broken heart, and scar, as they lean on each other to hope for a better future. The woman who brings them all together is just as unlikely...
What I liked so much about this story was how well I got to know each of the characters and what made them who they were, their heartbreaks, their sorrows.
It was definitely a riveting read as well, as I read it in less than 3 hours, and almost one sitting!
I was hard to decide who my favorite character was, but I think by the end I really liked Myghal the best, because of his faithfulness, and show of friendship of the truest kind throughout the story. He started out as a sort of back round character and then came to the forefront, and backing off again, yet he was always there when they needed him like some kind of guardian angel. If Bleeding Heart has a sequel in the works I definitely vote that it be Myghal's story.
Sally was a good heroine, in that she had a touch exterior, but proved to be fragile and in need of true friends. When the book first started I didn't know if I would like her or not, but she grew on me by miles, and by the end I thought she was fantastic.
Overall, a well written tale, that is not so much a romance, but a story of friendship and how God can mend our broken hearts. The end part was just amazing, I could not tear my eyes from the page until I read the words "The End" definitely a book well worth the read! Highly recommend!
