Deep in a box of used books, counselor Tory Sasser comes across a novel without an ending: Heatherfield. As she reads the story of scarred war veteran, Jake Benjamin, her tears fall on the pages-and she could swear new words appear where once there was nothing.
But the fictional town of Heatherfield isn't all it seems, nor is its creator, Destiny Paige. When Tory's car runs off the road into the mist, she's transported back to the 1940s-into the novel, trapped by the spirits that govern the place through Destiny. Even more, Tory is caught by the honest warmth and complicated tenderness that is Jake Benjamin.
Realizing she's falling in love with Jake, Tory is desperate to find her way back home to reality. Yet what is more real than true love? No, Heatherfield isn't all it seems ... not at all.
Reviews and Other Information:
"M. Jean Pike has captured a chiller of a paranormal romance in her astounding tale Heatherfield... Her vision of the late forties is incredible. Mingled with flashbacks of war, beautiful mountain scenery and a horrible car accident, the images were vividly colorful and just plain stunning. This is a unique romance that will make you laugh, chill you with "gooseflesh" and bring tears to youreyes." Angela Steed, Author of 1080 Kiss.
"Heatherfield yields a great plot with complex characters that keep the story moving at a steady pace. I was deeply moved by Jake and what he has suffered during the war. Tory is a refreshing woman who had me on the edge of my seat wondering her outcome in this story with the past and the present. M. Jean Pike weaves a spellbinding page-turner read. The story is beautifully told."

"Heatherfield is an interesting paranormal tale with a unique and surprising ending. That the ending caught me unawares is an understatement, in fact, Heatherfield reminded me of a TWILIGHT ZONE episode ... The romance between Tory and Jake is delightful and the descriptions of Heatherfield and its populace are so vibrant, that I felt transported there."
