As three friends who grew up in the same orphanage head off to college together, they each harbor a cherished dream. Libby wishes to become a famous journalist, Pete plans to study to become a minister, and Bennett wants to join a fraternity and have as much fun as possible. But as tensions rise around the world on the brink of World War I, the friends' differing aspirations and opinions begin to divide them, as well. And when Libby makes a shocking discovery about Pete's family, will it drive a final wedge between the friends or bond them in ways they never anticipated?

Best-selling, award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer is a wife, mother, grandmother, author, speaker, singer of songs and lover of chocolate...but most importantly, she's a born-again child of the King! A former elementary school teacher, Kim closed her classroom door in 2005 to follow God's call on her heart to write and speak. Now blessed with multiple writing contracts with Bethany House, Barbour, and Zondervan Publishing, Kim enjoys sharing her journey to publication as well as the miraculous story of her healing from a life-long burden of pain and shame. Kim's gentle yet forthright testimony lends credence to the promise of Ps. 117:2--"Great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever."

The book “In Every Heartbeat,” three orphans that grew up together begin their college life.
Libby wants to be a famous journalist. Petey wants to be a minister. Bennett wants to pledge a fraternity, find a place where he belongs and have all the things he felt he missed out on growing up.
Both Petey and Bennett would like for Libby to notice them, but Libby only sees them as brothers and best friends at first. All of them go through many hardships and failures at school to start, but they don’t quit.
Petey is considered an orphan because his parents threw him out when he was a young child. So he wants to go back and tell them how much they hurt him. One of my most favorite parts of the book is when Petey confronts his family and how very touching it is.
During the book you will see how each of them grow up in maturity and spirituality. The book is suppose to take part during WWI but you don’t hear about the war until the end of the book. I always look for the title in the book and this one is very special. It tells us how the Lord is in every heartbeat.
I really liked this book and it’s an easy read. Kim Vogel Sawyer is an excellent author and I love to read her books. I recommend “In Every Heartbeat.”
