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.

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...

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...

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.

The story line was interesting. Three sisters who suddenly have to face the decisions they have made in the past that have taken them to the point where they are in life, while dealing with the illness of a loved one.
I was looking forward to reading the book, but I found it disappointing.

This is a very touching story. Real life put into words that most cannot verbalize. Teaches you to love and appreciate what you have and those in your life, and to put the past where it belongs - in the past. The translation was impeccable, read as if it had been written in English. High...

A kindle first can be a hit or a miss . This book was a hit . It was a story about 3 sisters dealing with cancer, infidelity , and just a loss of heart in a relationship . It's a good story told in their points of view . Its worded a little different due to the fact the author is Swedish - but it...
