Written on My Heart

The marriage of Florine Gilham and Bud Warner is cause for celebration down on The Point, the Maine fishing village where they’ve grown up together. Yet even as the newlyweds being their lives together, Florine is drawn back into the memory of her mother, Carlie, who vanished when Florine was twelve.

As unexpected clues regarding Carlie’s fate surface and problems mar their young marriage, Florine and Bud face the challenges of trying to solve an old mystery while sustaining their marriage, holding on to love and trust, and raising a family. Ultimately, they find themselves being led down a strange path bordered by memory, struggles, and triumph, even as they are reminded of the power of family—the one you are born into and the ones forged by friendship. This unforgettable sequel to Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea contains its own unique heartbeat, as well as the pleasure of re-acquainting readers with old and new friends.

Praise for Written on My Heart 

“What a rarity Written on My Heart is. A novel that celebrates love and family and sticking together. You will fall in love with Florine and Bud, and when you finish the novel, you will most certainly grab the person you love and make him, or her, dance with you, slow and close.” Ann Hood, author of The Italian Wife, The Red Thread, Knitting Pearls, and Comfort.

      I heard the bed creak back inside our honeymoon suite and then Bud was behind me on the balcony. “You’re all right,” he said, wrapping his arms around me from the back. “We’re all right. Nothing will happen to us.”

     “How do you know?” I asked.

     “I don’t. But the odds are on our side. Pretty soon, you ain’t going to have time to worry about things that probably won’t happen.”
