Bainbridge Island author Susan Wiggs — “who paints the details of human relationships with the finesse of a master” (Jodi Picoult) — returns this summer with Map of the Heart, a deeply emotional and atmospheric story of love and family, war and secrets, that moves back and forth across time, from the present day to World War II France.

You can preorder now and Susan will sign and personalize your first edition book! And as a thanks, Susan will include a gorgeous Map of the Heart luggage tag just for you!

An accomplished photographer, widow, and mother, Camille Palmer is content with the blessings she’s enjoyed. When her aging father asks her to go with him to his native France, she has no idea that she's embarking on an adventure that will shake her complacency and utterly transform her.

Returning to the place of his youth sparks unexpected memories — recollections that will lead Camille, her father, and her daughter, Julie, who has accompanied them, back to the dark, terrifying days of the Second World War, where they will uncover their family’s surprising history.

While Provence offers answers about her family’s past, it also holds the key to Camille’s future. Along the way, Camille meets a handsome American historian who stirs a passion deep within her she thought she’d never experience again.
