In a Heartbeat by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy  It only takes a moment to make a difference.  The course of a life can be redirected by a single decision to act.  "In a Heartbeat " by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy not only relates their side of "The Blind Side" story of NFL player Michael Oher.  It takes the reader back to where they came from and how their journeys made the decision to act an easy one.
