Twelve years ago, Charlie Crawford shot dead his two lesbian neighbors. Now he's terminally ill and requesting early release from prison.

Back then, Sharon and her friends fought to bring him to justice. Now she has to find the strength to fight again. But the man who killed her friends also took her sobriety. And with it he took her partner, Laura. Sober again, all Sharon has left is a life she's just about surviving.

She'll do what she can to keep Charlie in jail. But it's hard—really hard—to cope with the news that Laura's back in town.

Hate has spoiled Sharon's world. There just doesn't seem any place for love. But she's forgotten just how powerful friendship can be. She'll soon remember.

Indelible is the inspiring sequel to the best-selling Love in the Balance.

Far be it from me to attempt to improve upon the 3 reviewers of the paperback version of Marianne Martin's latest novel, "Indelible Heart". For all of us Kindle-ites, (or Nook-ers) the e-book has just become available and, having just finished reading it, I too consider it to be a must read.

In my opinion Marianne K. Martin is one of the premier authors in this genre. If you have never read any of her books, I recommend that you take the time to acquaint yourself with this author's sensitive, witty and insightful story telling. You most definitely will not be sorry!

All but one of Marianne's 9 books are available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both paperback and e-book formats at very reasonable prices. Her first book "Legacy of Love", is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble in paperback only. However, I have it on good authority that the e-book will be available in February, 2012. If you have not yet read "Never Ending" (sequel to Legacy) for Kindle or Nook, I suggest you borrow or purchase the paperback version of Legacy before reading "Never Ending". Although "The Indelible Heart" is the story of Sharon From "Love In The Balance", there is a good portion of this book that continues the story of Sage and Deanne from "Legacy..."and "Never Ending" 10 years later. So fans of Sage Bistro get to hear more of her story as well!

I certainly hope it won't be too long a wait for this fellow Michiganders next novel.

It's interesting to see the changes in the characters ten years after the senseless death of their friends. The emotions run deep and the characters have human flaws we can all understand and empathize with, and yet we can see what they can't. It's a good story well told. Ms Martin has a deft touch and she paints a vivid picture of the circumstances and emotions of her characters. I love her style and facility with our language that can be two dimensional in less skilled hands.

M. Martin is a writer who leaves no loose ends. The story is gripping, tender, tear jerking, and captures the true feelings of a woman's heart and emotions.

One of life's lessons is learning where boundaries are and how to live within them. Marianne K. Martin uses the interactions between friends to show how boundaries can be difficult to maintain.

The book picks up a story line first addressed in Martin's book Love in the Balance and brings it forward ten years. Charlie Crawford murdered two neighbors who were lesbians and now his family is trying to get him out of prison early because he is dying. The killings nearly destroyed the life of Sharon Davis who was a friend of the slain women. The trauma of the incident drove her into alcoholism and caused her relationship with her lover Laura to fail. Years later Sharon thinks she has finally put her life back together and then the effort to free Crawford sends her back into the bottle. On top of that, Laura has returned to town to care for her ailing mother. Sharon has two obsessions and they're about to slam into each other. She can't resist Laura and she cannot forgive Crawford. People who know her, especially her best friend and business partner Kasey Hollander, are afraid Sharon is going to lose control of her life again, but disagree over what they should do about it. What they do not want is a repeat of what happened ten years ago.

The Indelible Heart can be read and appreciated as a story of a woman who is trying to find balance in her life and her chance to possibly recapture the love she once knew. If the reader is looking for a romance, then this book suits that purpose. Marianne Martin has a habit though of going deeper with her characters and sometimes that can make the observant reader uncomfortable.

Sharon, for example, cannot just commit to an action, she becomes consumed by it. Movements need people like Sharon, but they can be very difficult to live with, even when someone loves them. Sharon becomes so focused on revenge against Crawford that she cannot see the fact that, no matter what is done to him, it will never bring her friends back. Her boundary failure is that she cannot turn off her campaign for justice at appropriate moments. Her way of coping with frustration is to get drunk. Even when she has an opportunity to get Laura back there is still the chance that she will turn to alcohol instead. As the book develops, Sharon is not the only character with boundary issues. Kasey confronts the fact that even best friends have limits they should not exceed. Laura has to learn not to let her early life interfere with what she can have with Sharon.

One of the things that makes reading The Indelible Heart interesting is that it deals with the characters realistically. These people make mistakes. They have emotional reactions that ring true and sometimes those reactions are totally inappropriate. Readers will be able to say "I know someone like her" or, perhaps, "I am her." Ultimately however the message is about survival. It is about how, even when you make mistakes, friends and family will be there when you figure out what you have done wrong. That is what real relationships are about.

The Indelible Heart is not a dark book, but it is a thoughtful one. It will not take long to read it. Not nearly as long as it will cause the reader to think about what it says. For those who say they want to see more stories that deal with real issues in an entertaining way, this is the answer.
