Freefall by Kristen Heizmann
softcover, 2006, Bethany House
Author Kristen Heitzmann sends us to the edge with her book, ‘Freefall’. The story unfolds on the beautiful island of Kauai; Ms. Heitzmann captivates us with her beautiful description of the islands’ foliage and atmosphere.
You can feel the ocean mist come down the mountains with the main character, Jade, whose loss of memory leaves her searching for who she is and how she came to be on the island.
Native Monica Pierce helps administer the healing solitude that Jade desperately needs and enlists the help of her investigator brother Cameron. Tormented by the hazy memory of the person she left in the mountains, Jade struggles to piece together the clues of her identity and make sense of the attraction she begins to feel for Cameron.
As the truth unfolds Jade and Cameron are thrown in to a whirlpool of chaos. Cameron battles his feelings of betrayal over a past hurt and the scandal that descends over Jade’s existence. Jade must learn to lean on God’s peace and understanding amidst a world writhing in deceit, selfishness and pain.
Through it all a beacon of hope shines through as Ms. Heitzmann shows us in a triumphant way, how with God, all things are possible.
