“When Angels Paint” by Mara Purl

Can an artist’s imagination alter reality? Can something in the heart manifest in the real world? Artist Miranda Jones might have agreed that dreams sometimes come true. But she’d never presume to believe something could leap from her canvas into the life of someone she hardly knows.

Until now, that is.

Over-scheduled during the busy holiday season, she none the less can’t help bu follow the imperative to paint an unlikely image on one of her small gift canvases. Little could she have imagined the event she depicts is actually taking place even as paints, nor that the element she’s guided to add to the image might be the very thing that saves a life. Is she painting on her own? Or might an angel be guiding her hand? What will become of the painting? Will the person apparently rescued by it ever know about his benefactor? Even if he sees it, will he believe what he sees?

Though the story stands alone, it also extends the Milford-Haven Holiday 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.

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.
