WHAT THE HEART REMEMBERS by Debra Ginsberg
When young Eden Harrison receives a heart transplant from an unknown
donor, she becomes haunted by dreams of
people and places she doesn’t recognize, and she is convinced that her new
heart carries the memories of its original owner. Eden leaves her old
life and fiancee behind and moves to the city of San Diego.
There, Eden becomes fast friends with Darcy, a young woman recently
widowed when her wealthy, much older husband dies. Yet, the
more Eden learns about Darcy, the more she realizes that all is not as
it seems, and she begins to suspect foul play behind Darcy's husband and a young man Darcy had been having an affair with who has disappeared.
The compelling concept that memory can exist on a cellular level lies at the core
of this newest thriller from Ginsberg. Some twists and turns, both of the story line and a dangerous California highway, Del Dios, gives the reader an exciting ride.
