Talented drummer Willy McCollister has just gotten the opportunity of a lifetime. He's the new drummer for the Christian band the Mercy Seat Rockers. Immediately upon landing the gig, Willy hops on the tour bus and heads for sunny California for a ten-month tour.When Willy literally trips over Noel Franklin in an alley, his life takes another dramatic turn.On the outside, eighteen-year-old Noel Franklin seems to have the perfect life. She's the daughter of famous Hollywood stars. She seems to have it all. She has a wonderful singing voice, and drives a flamingo-pink Camaro. But all is not as it seems with Noel. She is orphaned at home due to her parents' busy schedules and lack of parental care and love for her.When Noel meets Willy, she soon discovers the love of God in the life and arms of Willy. She finds it hard to believe anyone, much less God, could love her. If that wasn't enough, she is blown away that someone as kind, funny, and caring as Willy could want her in his life. But Willy is determined to prove to Noel that she deserves love and a second chance.When Noel's singing ability gives her the opportunity to join the Mercy Seat Rockers, she hesitates because of the feelings she is developing for Willy-feelings she doesn't know he returns.How will Noel react when Willy tells her, "You are The Beat of My Heart"?
