Contest#1 - The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews - ends Jun 09th, 2010. Open Worldwide

Constest open Worldwide
Synopsis (from the front and back flaps):

While digging up a withering wax myrtle tree besides his waterfront home on the Gulf Coast, author Andy Andrews unearths a rusted metal container filled with Nazi artifacts and begins an intriguing investigation that unlocks an unspoken past that took place in this backyard…literally.

In the summer of 1942, as the country gears up for a full-scale commitment to WWII, German subs are dispatched to the Golf of Mexico to sink U.S. vessels carrying goods and fuel for the war. While taking a late-night walk along the coastline, Helen Mason – recently widowed by the realities of war – discovers the near-lifeless body of a German sailor. Enraged at the site of Josef Landermann’s uniform, Helen is prepared to leave the lieutenant to die when an unusual phrase, faintly uttered, changes her mind. Set in a period simmering with anger and suspicion, The Heart Mender offers the very real chronicle of a small town preparing itself for the worst the world has to offer. As cargo from torpedoed ships begins to wash up on the beach, Josef and Helen must reconcile their past in order to create a future.

Blending his unique style of historical accuracy with unparalleled storytelling. Andy Andrews offers a tale of war, faith, and forgiveness – illuminating the one principle that frees the human spirit.
