You just know when you pick up a book and put it down many times it is going to be a hard book to review. You plug along determined, to read the story because after all, you have have enjoyed this author before. (Loved The Baker's Wife) There was too many "toos" in this story. Too many characters, too many incidents happening in one day, too many coincidences. All of these many things, just made the book hard to read. The paranormal aspect of the story, had an interesting premise, but it just didn't deliver for me.
Over all I have to rate this at a 3 star book.

Who will you trust when dark waters rise?
Eagle's Talon is an architectural marvel-shining residential units afloat in a protected cove of the gorgeous Rondeau River. The project is nearly complete, partially occupied, and ready to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way. Then torrential rains and a flood leave a ragged collection of builders, investors, and residents stranded in one floating building, cut off from the rest of the world.
They're bitterly divided over what to do next.
Architect Vance Nolan insists they should sit tight and wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single mom Danielle Clement, desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, struggles to hold their motley band together.
Power failure, a pall of unnatural daytime darkness, explosions in the distance, then a murder ratchet tensions to a boiling point. But Danielle's young son, Simeon, has spotted something strange underwater-beautiful, shifting lights in the dark water below.
In this watery world where everyone's secrets will eventually come to light, salvation may mean more than just getting out alive.

While I am not a fan of war stories, historical or modern day, I am a fan of quilt stories. I love this Quilts of Love Series, and have read most of this series. So while I am not a fan of battle scenes, I have to say this author was a great story teller and shared the battle scenes very well. Beth worked on this quilt all during the story, as she worked caring for the injured soldiers. A love story between two unlikely people. Beth and Joe the soldier for the other side. So while I did not connect in a deep way to this story because of the war story, I did enjoy it. A book that you will enjoy and can read quickly since it is not a large book. 4 stars

About A Heartbeat Away:
When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.
Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test---but can betrayal be forgiven?
