I hear your heartbeat is a poignant, heartwarming story about love, forgiveness and healing. Painful memories of long ago can linger in the caverns of our heart and soul.

The healing and solace would come, but in a most unusual and unexpected way. Tal’s pilgrimage brings him to new life, new hope, forgiveness and, most importantly, the freedom to love fearlessly and unconditionally.

It was September, 1961, Kayne County High School. He was seventeen, she was fifteen and........
