A drunk driver. An old car. A black dress. A lifeless body laying in an open coffin. 

That's all that Regina cares to remember about the day her fiancé died. Her heartless mother could only manage to give Regina unwanted pity, so she turned to her sister, Zelena for comfort. The two became closer than ever, but Zelena was whisked away to England for work, and Regina was once again left alone. She somehow picked up the pieces and managed to put her life back together, but she only ever felt like a ghost, drifting through life without purpose. But when Zelena comes home with her client, Robin, and her boyfriend, Arthur, Regina's life is flipped on its head.

But will she learn that it's okay to let her heart beat, or will she forever be haunted by the memories of her past and the grudges she has held for years?


Based on ABC's 'Once Upon a Time', but set in a non-magical world. I do not own Once Upon a Time or any of the characters, only the plot line. The title is based off of the song 'Tell Your Heart to Beat Again' by Danny Gokey. I do not own the song either.

This is so sad but i am glad that Zelena and Regina are getting along like real sisters [except for the moving away part].

I may or may not have squealed when I saw the notification for this book. Anyways, this was really good. I'm just sad that she's all alone for the time being.
