About "The Still of Night"
Kristen Heitzmann's characters leap from the page with a balance of strength and fragility as they face anguish from the past. Jill and Morgan, once high school sweethearts, had loved and lost--each other and the baby whom Jill gave up at birth. Years later, Morgan is outwardly successful, but he is still haunted by the memory of the tiny child. And then Jill shows up again in his life with very disturbing news. With her trademark dramatic storytelling, Heitzmann takes readers on an unforgettable journey with two wounded souls as they struggle toward healing and restoration.

Customer Reviews For "The Still of Night"Write Your Own Review
Kristen Heitzmann has not gained the notice that she should have in Australia. I find her to be one of the best Christian fiction writers from America. Her characters are real, the plot is engaging, the themes are deep and difficult. In this story, Jill is contacted by the adoptive parents of the baby she was forced to give away 16 years before. She is thrilled until she learns that her biological daughter is dying of leukemia. Her own childhood sweetheart, Morgan, also the father of the baby, never knew he had a living child, believing that his girlfriend had aborted the baby he had wanted to take responsibility for and bring up in a family. Their relationship had fallen apart at the time as Jill's parents whisked her away from Morgan, and forced the abortion. Jill has hidden her guilt and shame for years, and now her daughter needs a bone marrow transplant. She hopes to be a match, but the tests come back negative. Now she has to consider contacting Morgan after all these years of pain, tell him his daughter is alive, and that she needs him. Dynamic, moving and worth reading.
