Read The Heart Echoes Online Free - Swedish sisters Astrid, Lena, and Sandra have struggled to get along since childhood, but when Lena is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, they are each thrown into crisis together.
Astrid’s well-ordered, predictable world is shaken by the return of her ex-boyfriend Michael, an American who abandoned her—and their infant son—years earlier. While Astrid has remarried and had more children, she is suffocating under her husband’s kindness and cannot escape the pull of the past. Seeing Michael at their son’s high school graduation reawakens her grief and rage, along with more complicated and threatening emotions.
Envious of Astrid’s seemingly stable life, Sandra is married to an alcoholic and drowning in debt. She turns to Lena for help at the worst possible time. Lena, fighting to stay alive, must finally confront a devastating secret she’s kept from Astrid since the summer Michael left. As the walls they’ve built between them crumble, the three sisters must try to forgive and to rebuild their shattered bonds…while there’s still time.

Not a quick read
This was not an easy book for me to get through. I started it once but put it aside for new books that caught my fancy. Last week I decided it was time to clean up all the unread 'orphan books in my kindle and I categorized all of them as currently being read on Goodreads thinking...

This is easily the worst book I've attempted to read in years. Maybe it's the translation, but the language is stilted and odd. I didn't like any of the main characters in the book. The plot revolves around the dysfunctional relationship between 3 sisters and their history of betrayal, lies, pass...

This was my Kindle First choice for August. It was a little slow and repetitive in places but I liked it and would definitely read this author again. Apparently she's written a lot but this is the first translated into English from the Swedish. The three sisters featured are all very different. I...

Had a hard time getting thru the book. Slow like molasses.

Only my inability to stop a book once I've started it could make me finish this book. The writing seemed kind of choppy until I got used to it, I'm not sure if this is because it was translated to English. The book is related separately by all three characters which makes it seem repetitive. With...

This is a heartfelt story of three sisters and long ago buried secrets. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, especially as it was set in Stockholm in one of my 'hometowns' and favourite cities in the world!

The heart echoes
I really liked this book. The characters are relatable in their flaws and in their strengths. The book is written from each sisters point of view, which f for me, made it more interesting and allowed me to see each sisters version of life.
The ending came to soon and abruptly for...

Unlikeable & under developed characters. There was no real plot... I chose this as my kindle first pick for August and wish I chose something else. I struggled to finish it.

Not really my type of book but the characterizations were well done. Three sisters, all of whom have found what they thought was a great love but that they do not have at the moment. One sister is dying and they all end up looking closely at what they had and lost. I really didn't like the ending...
