Is the heart smarter than the head? Artist Miranda Jones begins to trust her heart enough to escape from her life of privilege and start over in Milford-Haven, the small town of undiscovered beauty on California's Central Coast. She connects with environmentalist Samantha Hugo-a brilliant PhD twenty years her senior who gave up a son years earlier; and with restaurant owner Sally O'Mally who left Arkansas to create her own dream. Each woman wrestles with her own core issues while balancing demanding careers with the attentions of interesting men. None is aware that journalist Christine Christian has just been murdered while investigating a half-built house. Though the book stands alone, it is also Book 1 in the critically acclaimed, popular series, a multi-generational saga. Based on Purl's BBC Radio drama Milford-Haven U.S.A.

From the Inside Flap:

Where does your heart live?Miranda Jones  has run away from home.
The privileged daughter of wealthy parents, she's struck a blow for freedom by listening to her heart, a choice her sister, parents and artist's rep neither approve nor understand. Now that she's heard what her heart whispered, she finds herself where her heart led. But as she settles in this new place on the physical map, can she keep her hard-won spot on the professional map? Most important, can she re-map  her emotional life? Will the heart prove a better navigator than the head?

California's Central Coast  is  growing exponentially.
Now, in the mid-1990s, tourism is up, but so are environmental regulations. Housing is on the rise, but so are water restrictions. Gambling is restricted, but the Chumash tribe lobbies for gaming. The stock market is booming, the upwardly mobile are pouring out of Los Angeles in search of a fresh start, or a weekend getaway. In these affluent, pre-911 days, it's a time of infinite possibilities.

Milford-Haven is a town full of characters.
Escapees from San Francisco and Los Angeles, New York and Arkansas, Montreal and South Africa, have come here with their own  hopes and expectations, agendas and shadowed pasts. The stakes are high: create a new life from scratch. The opportunities are dazzling: own a piece of the California dream. It's a town of buried and a dangerous mystery, quaint shops and breathtaking vistas, peaceful solitude and spontaneous conversations. Wherever they've come from, people are drawn here by their hearts--they know there's something they've always wanted to find. And if not here . . . where? Come discover for yourself . . . Where the Heart Lives.

From the Back Cover:

Greetings from Milford-Haven!
"Putting Milford-Haven on the Map" by artist Miranda Jones

Finder's Gallery, Milford-Haven, CA 93450    

    December 15, 1996
Dear Sis,                
Here's my next postcard . . . a map so you can find me! Amazing Los Angeles adventure: ocean and sand dunes . . . then ten-thousand-foot mountains . . . then Mojave Desert . . . all in one week!
     Home to Milford-Haven soon. Sometimes I have my doubts, but basically I ♡ how I'm really finding myself here. And my studio-guest room is ready so come for a visit! 
   If I had to describe it, I'd say Milford-Haven is where people come to figure out where they belong. Worked for me. Still excited!
                                        Love, Miranda
PS-the stamp is of the lighthouse at Point Vicente in Palos Verdes, L.A., where I have a new commission.
