Overview

Can a link remain between a daughter and the mother she never knew?

Monique Dubois, born a child of privilege and affluence, witnesses the destruction of her entire family as Hitler's armies invade France in 1940. In the years that follow, both her innocence and her material possessions are lost. Her passion for freedom carries her into the dark and dangerous world of espionage, working alongside her friend, Zoë, a gifted movie star, who finds a useful outlet for her talent in the sinister corners of Paris working as an agent for the French resistance. As time passes, the gentle, compassionate girl she was becomes buried behind the walls of a resistance fighter. Then a handsome American airman arrives, and Monique begins to think there might be a life left for her after all.

Her Mother's Heart spans decades and generations as it follows Angelina on a quest to discover the truth about her mother. Author Mary Travers's intriguing, romantic novel tells two stories-one of Monique in the 1940s and one of Angelina in late-1960s, both linked by a common desire for truth and love. As Angelina is propelled forward, deeper into the truths behind her mother's former life, she finally realizes the depths and capacity of Her Mother's Heart.

    Highly Recommend... A Must Read!

    Intriguing! At first glance, the first few chapters capture your attention as you are introduced to character Angelina who is determined to research and gather information about her birth mother who died during childbirth.

    Captivating! The storyline is so well written that I found myself drifting to a time in the early 1970’s when as a young girl, my mother was brutally murdered and I later searched for answers about her life and death.

    “Her Mother’s Heart” is an amazing tale of two generations. The main character, Monique Dubois, is Angelina’s mother. Her family was very wealthy and prominent and in 1940, she witnessed their demise at the hands of Adolph Hitler’s evil armies’ during the invasion of France. Her life becomes a rollercoaster, lots of twist and turns.

    As the story switches back and forth between characters and time, you learn more about the life of each woman. In addition, you fervently follow Angelina on her pursuit to discover the truth about her mother’s former life.

    I commend Author Mary Travers for an excellent job at developing each character and writing in such a way that you want to read the book from cover to cover!

    I highly recommend this book!

    A real page turner

    An amazingly riveting story of two generations; a mother who was a French resistance fighter in WWII and of her American daughter who yearns to find the history of a mother she never knew. The deeper into the story I got the less I wanted to stop reading. Extremely well done!

    Highly Recommended

    "Her Mother's Heart" is a fast-paced, well-crafted glimpse into the deep emotional bonds between generations. Desppite being separated in space and time, the central character is driven to discover and know the mother who in giving life, lost her own. The author has done a solid job in developing her characters. The reader meets them, relates to them and cares what happens to them.
    Descriptions of places key to the story are so well written that I feel that I have been there. In simply remembering an incident, I see the open spaces and the intimate glades of Chateau Verte. There is a soft dampness underfoot and a peaceful quiet in the shadows made by low branches of ancient trees. There is an occasional sense of angst, but this place was haunted by fear and violence. Nonetheless the old residence with its nooks and crannies, its secret passages and antiquated furnishings all beckon the reasder on. Most interesting too is a close look into the daily life of patriots in the French Resistence.
