My friend JP Barnaby has a new book releasing July 11, and this is what she said about it. “On March 7, 1992 my daughter Kaitlyn was born with a pulmonary atresia, the same condition that affects little Robbie in A Heart for Robbie – because Robbie is her story. I wasn’t able to give her the same happy ending in real life, so I wrote her one. This book is her legacy.”
Waiting for someone else’s child to die so yours can live is the worst kind of Hell.
Celebrated Young Adult author Julian Holmes pits the heroic characters in his Black Heart series against all different kinds of monsters. But when a critical heart defect threatens his son’s life, he finds he has no champion. No amount of books, classes, or practice can prepare Julian for the fight to save his beautiful son’s life.
Suddenly there are hospitals, transplant lists, and the nightmare of insurance red tape to navigate. In the midst of his trouble, Julian meets Simon Phelps, the insurance coordinator for Robbie’s case. Simon lives so deep in the closet he might never find his way out, but he dreams of exactly what Julian has. Then one night, drunken need and desperation brings them together, and a new fight begins.
