Overview

In the wake of bitter divorce, ex-paratrooper and businessman Larry Baldwin leaves New York and returns to Georgia to make a new life for himself. Handsome, charming, tough, and opinionated, he is a man whose hard experience has taught him to be uncompromising in his ambitions and ruthless in his demands. Yet, for all his success, Larry is uneasy with himself, with his life, and with his times. What the Heart Knows is also the story of Cody West. Orphaned and alone, her exotic beauty and unflinching honesty have set her apart, earning her powerful enemies in the small town just outside Atlanta, where everything rests on appearances and nothing is what it seems. Finally, it is the story of a man and a woman who are worlds apart, yet who become unexpected travelers, journeying together into uncharted regions of the heart where love is the only guide ... two people propelled into a relationship that will change their lives and haunt them forever.

When ex-Marine and businessman Larry Baldwin leaves New York and returns to Georgia to make a new life for himself, he meets a lonely young woman who has powerful enemies in a town where nothing is as it seems. Worlds apart, these two lovers become unexpected travelers, journeying together into uncharted regions of the heart where love is the only guide.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
While the storytelling in Johnstone's mainstream fiction debut is earnest and heartfelt, this tale about a May-September affair between a small-town Southern girl and a hard-nosed businessman never develops into anything more than an extended romantic clich. Larry Baldwin, 40, is smart and tough, a former Green Beret who leaves the New York rat race for a new business venture in his native Georgia. Baldwin's new boss, prominent local businessman Vic Goodman, turns out to be a sleazy redneck who proves difficult to deal with until the hired gun wins him over by enhancing his company's bottom line. When Baldwin's head is suddenly turned by troubled, down-and-out Cody West, however, he finds himself compromised by the pretty 22-year-old's bad history with Goodman and the differences between his own values and those of his free-spirited newfound love. Matters turn melodramatic before long, climaxing in a violent confrontation between Baldwin and Goodman's son, a drug-dealer who's been harassing Cody for years. Johnstone, author of several westerns (Talons of Eagles) and thrillers, moves his tale along at a sprightly clip. But his characters and story line are formulaic, much of the writing is blustery or mawkish (``Cody... ah, Cody. She was like the wind....''). His fans will probably be counting the days until he once again saddles up. (Aug.)
