Piece of Heaven by Barbara O'Neal

(Originally published as Barbara Samuel)

With her acclaimed hardcover debut, No Place Like Home, readers enthusiastically welcomed Barbara Samuel into the ranks of bestselling women's fiction, applauding her stirring novel of loss and redemption. In A Piece of Heaven, she shares another poignant tale rich in atmosphere and insight that explores the complexity of relationships, the importance of family, and the healing power of love.

In the sun-baked hills of New Mexico, Luna McGraw has lived a lifetime of regrets, struggling to conquer the demons that destroyed her marriage and caused her to lose custody of her beloved daughter. But as Luna fights to rebuild a relationship with the troubled teenager, she remains haunted by images of her own childhood and the father she barely knew.

Strong and resilient as the houses he builds, Thomas Coyote comes into Luna's life one extraordinary night when his grandmother nearly dies while conjuring a fiery brew of spiritual enchantment. Luna does not need a man-- especially one with a needy ex-wife--to complicate her fragile dreams of the future. Their attraction pushes them both beyond reason into a place where there is only possibility. Yet it will take more than passion to recover the tattered pieces of Luna's soul, more than time to forgive the sins of an offending husband, and more than promises to mend the broken heart of a child.

A Piece of Heaven is an irresistible novel full of colorful characters and lush settings spiced with the magical flavors of the Southwest, a brilliant tapestry of romance and realism by a master storyteller.

This was a well-written, amazing book. It was about love, redemption, loss and self-acceptance. Luna lost her father when she was young, and later went through a divorce and lost custody of her daughter. She has worked to rebuild her life, and her daughter is returning to live with her. Thomas has also gone through a divorce, and has his own life issues. When they meet they are strongly attracted to each other. Is this another self-destructive choice or can this be the chance for something incredible? This was a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down and I was sad to have it come to an end. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This story set in Taos, NM, is about Luna McGraw (and her family) as well as her new relationship with Thomas Coyote (who comes with baggage of his own). This is a realistic tale about life with all of its ups & downs with a theme of second chances. I liked that the author appeals to an "active" reader who can delve into each character. Thanks to the Inner Circle for the copy of this book.
