Heart-Beat is weer eens iets heel anders van auteur Joanne Carlton ofwel S.J. Paul. Haar eerste avontuur in het Engelstalige land. Dit roman draait om een man die er achterkomt dat hij ongeneeslijk ziek is. Maar hij wil zijn laatste droom nog invervulling zien gaan al is het letterlijk het laatste wat hij doet. Een boek gevuld met een lach en een traan die je tot in de kern. Een kunstwerk.
