Meet an American mom who will do anything to save her daughter’s life; a US transplant surgeon working in Africa, whose patients are rejecting organs at an alarming rate; a young mom in Africa, whose albino child is both feared and hunted by her people; and a bush pilot who delivers organs and doesn’t ask questions.
Medical science, superstition, and ethics all collide in Ghost Heart. Between the authentic characters and the relentless suspense, I couldn’t put it down. Harris and Gentry’s gritty, riveting story may be fictional, but it sheds light on some very real problems.
Not for the delicate, Ghost Heart is nevertheless a Great Weekend Read. Available through Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Thanks for reading!

About Jan C. Johnson
Welcome! If you like food, reading, laughing over life's little disasters, and maybe thinking about the bigger things of life, you have come to the right place. Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball.
No, really. I'm also working on a biography project.
I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.
