In a Brothers Eyes: the Brant McLachlan Story (2005) introduced us to a small town in Mississippi and a family so relatable that they became part of our own. We were captivated by Brants charm, drive, personality and his relationship with his life-long love. His Heart I Hold is a unique love story that explores not only the strength of the human spirit and the fragility of the human heart, but the definition of love itself. Jennifer and Christians story is one of love born of tragedy. When Brants life was cut tragically short, Jennifer lost her husband, and Christian lost his brother. They never imagined falling in love, but, as they navigated their way through shared loss, a friendship caught fire, and while Jennifer struggled with the idea that she could ever love another, Christian battled deep feelings of betrayal. Together, they learned lessons of selflessness, loyalty, respect, empathy and understanding that helped them ultimately define love and the beauty of its complexities, while realizing one common truth its his heart they hold. Its been a decade since they told us Brants story, now Jennifer and Christian McLachlan share their story in their own words.
