Heart Murmurs by Brynn Chapman
On tour with Prism Book Tours
Note from the Author
Heart Murmurs arose from the concept of cellular memory. The story grew from my readings about the experience of a handful of donors who began to have memories…. they did not recognize. With people and place they did not recognize. In one case, a woman was actually able to identify her donor’s murderer.
“Cellular memory can refer to: A variation of body memory, the hypothesis that memories can be stored in individual cells.”
I hope you enjoy Mia’s story, her battle with her heart condition, and cheer for her to win her battle with the Secret Literary Society. THE LITERATI.
Mia Templeton is dying. Or was dying. After receiving a heart transplant, her world is forever altered. Before her eyes open, she overhears her donor was murdered. Whispers invade Mia’s mind before she’s even left the recovery room. She develops tastes for foods she once hated, and dreams so vivid, they feel like someone else’s memories. Her personality is altered – once a quiet doormat, she’s now inexplicably flippant, and confident. And her unexplained longing for the new boy at school is borderline obsessive.
Morgan Kelley is new. Adopted by his aunt, a descendant of Louisa May Alcott (Little Women), he’s thrown into life at a new high school, and as a historical guide for his aunt’s store – a homage to all things Alcott. Conspiracy theories abound about his mangled lower leg – but no one has been brave enough to ask. Till Mia.
Something is awry with the Underground Railroad tunnels beneath his aunt’s home. Mia and Morgan enter the world of a secret Literary Society – and are drafted to help bring a rogue Literary giant to justice, solve the mystery of her heart donor, and the real fate of Beth from Little Women.
I liked this book. I like the way the author put several real facts in the story. I thought it made it that much more interesting.
The characters were fun to follow and quite believable.
The story flowed well and was easy to follow.
The title fit the story very nicely and it had an eye-catching cover.
I would recommend this book to other readers.
I would also give this story a literary rating of 5/5
