Hearts Set Free, Jess Lederman

Hearts Set Free weaves together three tales of men and women who journey from the darkness of doubt to triumphant faith and from the ache of loneliness to everlasting love.

In 1930, the rag-tag riffraff of a railway stop called Las Vegas need a fighting man to shepherd their tiny church after their pastor is murdered. Might David Gold, a washed-up boxer and Bible-school dropout who fights as the Pummelin’ Preacher, be the answer to their prayers?

At the same time, Luke, a native Alaskan boy, is on a quest to find his father, who has abandoned his family for a beautiful woman his mother vows to kill. Little do mother or son imagine that their journey will take them to a small town in Nevada where demons and angels walk among men.

In 2011, Science Cable T.V. producer Tim Faber is determined to prove that mankind has no need of God, while his lover, Joan Reed, strives to regain the faith of her youth. They’re bound for Las Vegas to meet with 99-year-old Luke, who holds the key to a mystery they must solve–and answers that will forever change their lives.

Hearts Set Free is an emotive piece of literature that enthralled, entertained and enchanted me from the very first page! Everything about this contemporary Christian piece of fiction was compelling; the characters, as well as settings the reader gets to experience and the incredible literature courtesy of the remarkable Jess Lederman, made me fall madly in love with this book. Hearts Set Free is a piece of fiction that will captivate readers from all genres thanks to the many themes that are interwoven between the pages. This book can only be described as a read that should not be missed!

Hearts Set Free is an exceptional story that will ‘weave together three tales of men and women’ as they journey from darkness to light and most importantly, faith. The reader will be taken on a journey from the year 1930 to 2011, and during this time the reader will meet many incredible characters. One of the most fascinating characters for me was a boy named Luke, an Alaskan native who is desperately trying to find his father. Luke’s father abandoned his family for another woman and let’s just say that Luke and neither his mother are happy about this! This is just one of the many tales weaved throughout Hearts Set Free, and Hearts Set Free is truly a novel not to be missed!

The story of Hearts Set Free is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work that took my breath away on more than one occasion, the pacing of this story was wonderfully written and plotted so that I did not get bored at any given time.

It is the kind of book that is impossible to put down, and when I had to I longed for it! I wanted to be reunited with the story I had grown to love and the characters I had become invested in.

Jess Lederman is a talented and well-accomplished author who has written an unforgettable novel that features heavily on its characters and themes. Lederman’s characters are well developed, and although many of them are not likable, they are believable, and their narratives jump right off the page and into the reader’s minds. This is another thing… Lederman has managed to create a vivid picture in my mind of this setting he has established. His sometimes long, descriptive sentences, captured my imagination and made me turn the pages with haste! Jess Lederman is a pure talent, and for that, he deserves all the praise in the world.

Thanks for the great review, Aimee! The journey of writing and then publishing Hearts Set Free has been a long one, and it’s gratifying to see that readers have the same sort of emotional engagement reading the story as I did writing it! The idea for the novel was born up in Alaska, where my late first wife, Teri, and I moved after she was diagnosed with ALS, and that’s where the story begins, back in 1925, during the Great Race of Mercy, the desperate thousand mile race to bring diptheria serum to Nome to save ten thousand lives.
