Susan Wiggs's latest is Heaven Sent!

After Susan Wiggs's last historical release, Halfway to Heaven, readers clamored for the story of Abigail's sister, Helena, and now it's here! "ENCHANTED AFTERNOON is a romantic comedy about domestic abuse," says fan-favorite author Wiggs about her new release from Mira. "That sounds strange, but there's a lot of repartee, teasing and zany characters to lighten the dark tones of an extremely serious social issue. The setting is beautiful Saratoga Springs, with its healing spa waters and the wild excitement of the famous racetrack. The Gilded Age splendor of this legendary town made
a gorgeous backdrop for the action.

"Helena Cabot Barnes is a woman ahead of her time, seeking a divorce from a powerful, abusive politician and then opening her home to women the rest of the world has rejected. Taking in women from every level of the social ladder helps Helena to rediscover her own worth, and finally she
is ready to love again.

"Her heart has never healed from the pain of losing Michael Rowan, the brilliant but troubled man who fathered her child but abandoned her without warning. In ENCHANTED AFTERNOON, he comes back, determined to win the woman he once lost. Their love story is funny, fierce and tender all at once—a celebration of the healing power of love."
