Overview

Love and family. War and secrets. Betrayal and redemption.

 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs returns with a deeply emotional and atmospheric story that spans oceans and decades, from the present-day Delaware shore to the battlefields of WWII France.

Widowed by an unspeakable tragedy, Camille Palmer has made her peace with the past and settled into the quiet safety of life with her teenage daughter Julie in a sleepy coastal town. Then the arrival of a mysterious package breaks open the door to her family’s secret past. In uncovering a hidden history, Camille has no idea that she’s embarking on an adventure that will utterly transform her.

Camille, Julie, and Camille’s father return to the French town of his youth, sparking  unexpected memories — recollections that will lead them back to the dark days of the Second World War. And it is in the stunning Provençal countryside that they will uncover their family’s surprising history.

While Provence offers answers about the past, it also holds the key to Camille’s future. Along the way, she meets a former naval officer who stirs a passion deep within her — a feeling that she thought she’d never experience again.

“Susan Wiggs seamlessly melds historical drama with contemporary romance,” raves Mary Kay Andrews. Now, this hugely popular author has created her biggest, most powerful story yet — a beautiful and heartfelt novel that celebrates the bonds of family and pays homage to the sacrifices of the past.

This book started out slow. I almost didn't finish reading it. The middle of the book became more interesting and moved along from there. I'm not much on overstated or over descriptive writing. That's why I don't read Danielle Steele. Wa, wa, wa gets on my nerves.

Fans of Susan Wiggs will love Map of the Heart. If your a lover of historical and contemporary romances you'll enjoy and maybe love this book too. The story line/plot moves back and forth from the present to WW2 keeping the reader engaged to keep up with what is going on. For me Map of the Heart was not a fast simple read. It is one to plan some uninterrupted hours to while away. Sadly I don't have alot of time to just sit and get into a bit of a deep read. And this is what Map of the Heart was for me. It was/is a great and well written and at another time might have captured my interest better. Fans you'll need to check it out. I enjoyed Map of the Heart and look forward to reading more from Susan Wiggs. I received a complimentary copy.

1st section was slow but after that it took off . I liked that all mysteries were solved and the questions were answered. Good ending.

So much emotion, so many stories of love and the real truth that life continues to bring happiness if we allow it.

Disappointing. I usually love Susan Wiggs and have read all her books, but this book was hard to get into and too full of drama. It seems as though she wanted to address social issues but too many at once and I found it disjointed and not engaging. Another first for me, I did not care for the characters at all - they seemed shallow and not well developed.
