National Book Launch – “When the Heart Listens” by Mara Purl
Nov 29 all-day

National Book Launch

National Listening Day

Mara’s newest book, When the Heart Listens, launches nationally on National Listening Day!

Can the heart be telling us something we can’t quite hear?

Landscape artist Miranda Jones thought she was on track. Yet something feels off kilter. The subjects of her work all live in nature, yet she herself lives in the city. Her rep and her family emphasize money as the benchmark of success, yet her own goals have to do with the professional challenges of excellence, adventure, and authenticity. She plans a brief trip to join plein air artists in the Carrizo Plain to paint this year’s extraordinary super bloom. Yet what she experiences is a journey that opens a chapter into a new life. At least it will, if she considers what might happen . . . when the heart listens.

Though the story stands alone, it also extends the Milford-Haven Stories, part of the Milford-Haven Saga, the critically acclaimed, best-selling, multiple-award-winning series. Based on Purl’s BBC Radio drama Milford-Haven U.S.A.
