A Heart For Robbie

The amazing JP Barnaby has a very special book out on Friday July 11th called A Heart For Robbie. Here's the blurb:

Waiting for someone else’s child to die so yours can live is the worst kind of Hell.
Celebrated Young Adult author Julian Holmes pits the heroic characters in his Black Heart series against all different kinds of monsters. But when a critical heart defect threatens his son’s life, he finds he has no champion. No amount of books, classes, or practice can prepare Julian for the fight to save his beautiful son’s life.
Suddenly there are hospitals, transplant lists, and the nightmare of insurance red tape to navigate. In the midst of his trouble, Julian meets Simon Phelps, the insurance coordinator for Robbie’s case. Simon lives so deep in the closet he might never find his way out, but he dreams of exactly what Julian has. Then one night, drunken need and desperation brings them together, and a new fight begins.

This book is very personal to JP as in fiction she was able to give her couple the happy ending that in real life she herself was denied with her own daughter. I can't wait to read such a hopeful, loving book. :)


  1. I read Aaron per RJ Scott's recommendation and loved it. Will definitely read this one, especially since it's near and dear to JP.

  2. Sounds heart wrenching but a book liked love.
