“A deftly crafted story… Hatvany compels readers to examine a diverse number of issues—death, organ donation, single parenthood, abuse, self-respect—and handles each topic with sensitivity and compassion.” (Kirkus on Safe With Me)

"Beautifully developed characterizations." (Seattle Times)

“A stirring portrait of two moms, linked by tragedy, who rescue each other in more ways than one." (Good Housekeeping)

“Hatvany does a marvelous job of not letting the plot get too maudlin or ‘ripped from the headlines,’ and her characters have warmth and depth. Readers will find themselves cheering for these women. A good pick for women’s-fiction fans, particularly those who enjoy the realistic stories of Emily Giffin and Kristina Riggle.” (Booklist)

"In Amy Hatvany's capable hands, richly drawn characters explore everything that is complex, difficult, powerful and poignant about being a mother, a daughter, a friend. Safe With Me is an extraordinary look behind the curtain into the very private pains of women, and the hope that endures when you survive the unthinkable. It will remind you that the human spirit can triumph over all, and you will wish you could reach directly into these pages and hug the heroines." (Stacey Ballis author of Off the Menu)

"Amy Hatvany is a strong new voice in contemporary women's fiction. Safe With Me is a compelling, thought-provoking novel about three women learning from each other as they navigate through a terrain filled with both tragedy and opportunity." (Kristin Hannah #1 New York Times bestselling author)

"Beautiful and deeply moving, Amy Hatvany writes about the tangled web of family in a way that makes you laugh, cry, cheer and ache. This book has so much heart." (Sarah Jio New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter)

"Equally heartbreaking and heart-pounding, Amy Hatvany's SAFE WITH ME puts her in the very fine company of Jodi Picoult as an author who takes tender real-life moments and compels the reader to care until the very last page. A book that will stick with you for days." (Allison Winn Scotch New York Times bestselling author of The Time of My Life)

“The novel explores myriad themes sure to appeal to fans of women’s fiction: love and loss, parenthood, grief, friendship, and complex family dynamics. Hatvany’s compassion for each female character is evident throughout, and readers will find their hearts, at times, breaking in three.” (Booklist)

“The voices are so down-to-earth and familiar and the events so much like real life that readers will feel like they know the characters…An uplifting and heartwarming experience.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"By turns gripping and revelatory, Heart Like Mine is a sympathetic exploration of blended family dynamics. In her affecting new novel, Amy Hatvany pulls no punches; her characters grapple with life's big moments—marriage, parenthood, death—but she renders each of them with compassion and understanding. Heart Like Mine tells an honest, hopeful story that resonates in all the best ways." (Jillian Medoff bestselling author of I Couldn't Love You More)

"Heart Like Mine fearlessly explores men and women desperate to measure up to the rigors of parenthood, but still failing their children. Hatvany bring sympathy and compassion to the page, while never losing sight of the damage children suffer when their parents make bad decisions." (Randy Susan Meyers bestselling author of The Murderer's Daughters)

"A heartfelt, moving story about the lasting effects of grief amidst family bonds and breakups, and the healing powers of love, honesty, and acceptance. Hatvany writes with such wise compassion for every one of her characters." (Seré Prince Halverson author of The Underside of Joy)

“A palpable love story, emotional search for and acceptance of a lost parent, and a bittersweet ending make for an enveloping, heartfelt read.” (Publishers Weekly)

“There are no storybook perfect endings here, but this compelling novel raises the possibility of a hopeful way forward.” (The Seattle Times)

“Will delight readers…vivid and written with a depth of feeling.” (Library Journal)

“Compelling…a fascinating look at mental illness—the exuberance and self-loathing, creativity and destruction that then reverberate against the lives of family and loved ones.” (Juliette Fay Shelter Me)

“Like a gorgeous dark jewel, Hatvany’s novel explores the tragedy of a mind gone awry, a tangled bond of father and daughter, and the way hope and love sustain us. It does what the best fiction does: it makes us see and experience the world differently.” (Caroline Leavitt New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You)

“I’m telling everyone about Best Kept Secret. It’s the realistic and ultimately hopeful story of Cadence, whose glass of wine at the end of the day becomes two…then…three…then a bottle. I love that Cadence feels so familiar, she could be my neighbor, my friend, or even my sister.” (Jennifer Weiner #1 New York Times bestselling author)

“I was transfixed by Cadence and her heart-wrenching dilemma. The writing is visceral, the problems are real, and there are no clear solutions. You won’t want to put it down.” (Emily Giffin New York Times bestselling author of Where We Belong)

heart vs head 6. März 2014
Von Shelleyrae - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Told from the perspectives of Hannah, Olivia and Maddie, Amy Hatvany's Safe with Me is an emotive story of tragedy, grief, friendship, secrets and second chances.

I was absorbed by the intensity of tragedy and emotion that unfolds from the first page of Safe With Me. Hannah's grief is raw and visceral as she faces the loss of her precious daughter, the agonising decision to donate her organs and then living without her. Olivia's love and concern for her ill daughter is evident and when we learn of the physical and emotional abuse she has endured for Maddie's sake we both admire and pity her. Maddie evokes immediate sympathy as a very ill girl and then as an awkward teen as she struggles to rebuild her life.

But if I am honest, on reflection, the plot of Safe With Me resembles a soap opera episode or a lifetime movie. I wish Hatvany hadn't opted to combine two such emotive issues - organ donation and domestic violence. While I think the author approaches both issues with sensitivity and compassion, it also seems calculated and somehow cheapens the seriousness of both.
I also took issue with some elements of the storyline, I would have liked the author to have developed the friendship between Hannah and Olivia more, for example. Hannah and Maddie's outrage over Olivia withholding her suspicions that Maddie was the recipient of her daughters liver, seems disproportionate, after all they had shared little more than a hairdressing appointment and a coffee date.

I've struggled with this review because while my heart was touched by this story when I was immersed in it, as I began to write down my thoughts I grew increasingly cynical about it all. I can't deny that Safe With Me is a gripping, affecting read in the moment but some readers, like me, may ultimately find it disingenuous.

Von Judith D. Collins - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is my fifth book by Amy, with a rating of ALL 5 Stars; however, can honestly say, SAFE WITH ME is an award-winning book, rightly deserving to be at the top of the list as recipient of Best Fiction of 2014, and to remain on the NY Times Bestseller list for months to come . . .

Wow, 5 stars does not seem appropriate, as this compelling book is so deserving of at least a 10 star review—without a doubt, the best book I have read this year (82nd book read YTD, March has not ended yet).

I have been fortunate to have read a lot of extraordinary 2014 new releases this year, and thanks to the wonderful publishers, such as Atria Books, Washington Square Press, and NetGalley, and others; have been given the opportunity to read a number of advanced reading copies, as well as other authors and publicists finding me through Amazon, requesting I read and review their books--am truly honored.

When I give a 5 star rating, it is due to a number of criteria, with the main one, “not being able to put the book down”. So when you run across a book such as, SAFE WITH ME, five stars seems inadequate, as deserving of so much more. (you want to blog and tell all your friends to buy this book, TODAY)!

I knew the first time I read one of Amy’s books, she would be one of my favorite authors for life. Everything she writes is so masterfully crafted, reflective of her talents as a highly skilled author, speaking from the heart with honestly, sensitivity and humor. She is not afraid to tackle highly charged subjects such as alcoholism, grief, critical illness, sickness, abuse, family drama, relationships, social subjects, death, bullying, and organ donation.

Not sure where to begin, as my reviews seem to get lengthier, the more I enjoy the book, as passionate about reading—realizing, a need to keep them brief in order to be read; however, here goes:

From the first page, I was hooked! There are some strong women characters here, and the topics Hatvany selected, and brilliant way she was able to skillfully create a path for each of these woman to connect and intersect, was outstanding! The characters had so many flaws, yet she used them in such a delicate way to create a positive and warm feel and take away, for her readers and fans. (I also enjoy her acknowledgement with the creation of her stories, as inspiring).

SAFE WITH ME, had so much meaning from the emotional to the physical. From creating false identity and hope of oneself, coping with insecurities and dishonesty, fabricating stories and lies created by fear, and continuing to keep feelings and actions buried deeper, for a more serious outcome.

I especially related to the abuse topic, as was a victim in a similar situation with a wealthy, controlling second husband, with Jekyll and Hyde, Sleeping with the Enemy type personality, as James; in so much, I could almost predict his next move (as bad or worse) with painful memories resurfacing, as I turned the pages of this realistic plight. Fortunately, I was able to escape this abusive marriage after five long years, with two sons of my own and three step sons. This was over 25 years ago and found a highly independent and rewarding life thereafter; however, can relate to Olivia as the reasons for trying to justify staying to protect her family.

I loved the character of Hannah, a successful hair stylist owner, mother, friend, daughter, sister, and business partner; picking herself up, getting back into the world and trusting again, as well as her altruistic friendship and nurturing with Olivia and Maddie.

Maddie’s first hand struggle as patient and afterwards as a transplant survivor was heart breaking, as she is attempting to survive in world new to her, while dealing with her own guilt and prison within her own home. In addition, how social media and technology played a huge part in the storyline and narrative, as well as how teens can become involved in such peer pressure with such tactics as bullying, shoplifting, as well as online attempts to help make themselves to fit in and be more acceptable.

There are so many dynamics to this powerful and riveting story which will keep you turning well into the night, with your heart pounding to see what coming around the corner. I could write more; however, will stop to save room for others. We all need friendships, encouragement and support to help those in time of need through grief, with domestic shelters, and support groups.

An amazing story, which will live on well after the last page. Hats off Amy – this is a winner!A Thank you, for the courage, tenacity, and commitment to craft such a remarkable story. I highly recommend, as well as all Amy’s books. (Here’s hoping for a sequel with Hannah, Olivia, and Maddie (without James) -these characters are too good, to end.)

I stayed up past my bedtime every night till I finished this book. Amy does an amazing job at making the characters come life. The book tells the story from three perspectives, Olivia, Hannah, and Maddie. I loved how the characters came into each others lives. I definitely recommend this book. Every chance I got I picked up the book. I felt so many emotions while reading this book. It was gut wrenching. Captivated my attention throughout the entire book.

RIVETING! 20. März 2014
Von Stephanie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I stayed up waaay past my bedtime last night to finish SAFE WITH ME because it is RIVETING! I absolutely loved this book, but that's no surprise because I have loved of Amy's novels since I discovered Best Kept Secret. And her novels just keep getting better and better. This one was OH.MY.GOSH, I can't even tell you how good! Told from the perspective of three women: Olivia, her daughter Maddie, and Hannah, so you get each of THEIR stories - I love a book like this. Maddie is the liver recipient of Hannah's daughter who was an organ donor. Olivia is Maddie's mother who is in a HIGHLY abusive marriage. Hannah and Olivia meet by happenstance and Hannah discovers that Maddie was her daughter's organ recipient. GOT ALL THAT? Toss in a VERY volatile husband with a storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat, and you WILL NOT STOP TURNING PAGES.

This is one of the best books I have read. I read a lot and try to find different types of books to read. This one was so interesting that I had a hard time putting it down. The characters are so real and I could relate to them.
