Heroes at Heart: Book One
Yancy Bell was bullied in high school for being a yellowbelly, not because of any cowardice, but because of his nervous bladder condition. It’s Yancy’s first year in college, and he’s hoping to make a fresh start.
Three days before Christmas, the campus is empty. Having to pee on a midwinter night leads Yancy to meet Curt Donovan huddled in a dark shower stall. Curt’s a troubled jock whose coming out went badly, so he plans to end it all.
But Yancy adamantly refuses to let Curt go through with his irrevocable plan. With just one dark night to talk Curt around, Yancy has to win the trust of a stranger who only sees one way out.
This was a very hopeful and sweet story, I enjoyed so much.
It had a simple plot, but the way the author was able to transmit Curt and Yancy’s emotions was so beautiful. I liked both main characters, they were sweet, compassionate and even though they were introducing the reader into a, sometimes, hard to read subject, they were able to keep an attitude that brought hope.
The way a relationship start building in such a difficult situation was a nice thing to see. I feel it was a great job to make it as believable as it was, it didn’t seemed forced and I got to feel how much they care for each other.
It was a very interesting book. The first I read from this author, but certainly not the last, I am impressed how nicely the subject was address. It was beautiful to read. I’ll be looking for more books from the author.
