In a Heartbeat by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy
I absolutely loved this book! I thoroughly enjoyed the movie The Blind Side and the true inspirational story behind it. But this books allows people to hear directly from Leigh Anne and Sean. They talk about their childhoods and the financial struggles they had early on in their marriage - and even during the time when Michael first came into their lives. They also share about the Christian faith that's behind their passion to give ... whether it's time, money, energy, or whatever ... whether it's a little or a lot. There are also interludes between chapters where you hear firsthand from their kids - Collins, Michael, and SJ - and from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The book does talk some about the movie, but it really talks about the story behind the movie.
The book is moving, funny, and honest, and I felt like I knew Leigh Anne and Sean personally after reading it. It was a very quick read. I would have read it straight through in one sitting but family and work kept pulling me away. :)
I would HIGHLY recommend the book to anyone!
5 stars (out of 5)
I received a free copy of this book from The B&B Media Group for free in exchange for my fair and honest review of the book.
