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 Provencal 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.

The latest audiobook accompanying me on my short commute to work. This was a wonderful story weaving back and forth from the United States to France, from the present to the Past. This book combines historical fiction, mystery, and romance for a well-balanced story that kept me wanting to get back into my car to hear more. 😊📚🎧

Laura317 I adore historical fiction - especially if it involves WW2. Stacked. 1y

Finished book 6 in the #24in48 readathon & it was a good one. A story of a Mom afraid of life after a tragic accident killed her husband, a teenage girl yearning to escape a high school which is far from the safe haven her Mom thinks it is & a mystery from the past. A story of family, and love, and life, and living when nothing is certain. 4 ⭐️ read & a great way to start day 2.

Andrew65 Well done on the time Read. 👏 2y

Good morning!!! Ready to start day 2 of the #24in48 readathon!! Map of the Heart starts in Delaware & I spent every summer growing up there & my parents retired there so it‘s making me smile on this early morning.

Amiable Where did your parents retire? My husband and I are considering doing the same in Delaware--have been scouting the area! 2y
JoScho This is a fun looking lot of books! I am currently working on The Dry. 2y
Hoopiefoot I‘m going to have to check this out! I live in southern DE & somehow I missed hearing about this book. 2y

ChrisM @Amiable they retired to Lewes @Hoopiefoot the 1st part takes place in ‘Bethany Bay‘ but talks about Rehoboth.... it seems to be a combination of real & idealized places 2y
Amiable That's where we're looking, too! Do they like it there? Is there anything about that area they are disappointed with? 2y
Hoopiefoot @Amiable Lewes is lovely! The uncontrolled growth in the area is my biggest complaint. (edited) 2y

Doing a little reading before we leave the hotel and head to breakfast with family before heading home.
Hope everyone had a safe and fun thanksgiving with little family drama. Mine had some but only because I have “that” uncle who is a drunk and annoying lol

Little fire everywhere just isn‘t doing it for me so I‘m setting aside and starting this instead. I may go back to LFE but it‘s doubtful.

Went to pick up MOTH and scored the other off the Lucky Day shelf. Does your library do this as well? It‘s pretty cool. I think it makes holds take longer tho since they put fewer in the hold queue to keep some out for Lucky day grabs.

alisahar I loooove this BPL feature! I‘m always thrilled when I get a book with a holds list a mile long. 2y
alisahar Boston Public Library @Bostonmomx2. I figured from your profile name maybe you were talking about that one. 🙂 2y
Bostonmomx2 @alisahar oh lol no, I have 2 Boston Terriers 😊😊 2y

This is the second novel by @SusanWiggs I've read and it's so good. Wiggs is so talented - he stories are deceptively sophisticated and profound. I loved the switching between the historic and contemporary in this book, as well as the dual setting of Delaware and Coastal Provence, France. A must- read!
