HEART OF THE SKY celebrates the magic of place and the transforming power of an unlikely love. When recently widowed Marilyn Carpenter moves to Guatemala, she intends to volunteer for a few years after which she'll return to California to retire comfortably as a psychotherapist.
When she meets Mayan farmer Juan Carlos Tuc, is it love for this man and his children or for the Guatemalan countryside and the Mayan people that she feels? For him, is it love or simply need? And when Guatemala's past suddenly intrudes, can the fabric of their relationship withstand the strain?
A gracefully crafted, richly sensual tale which traverses Mayan traditions, emotional, historical and spiritual issues, and the ever-changing culture.
A percentage of the profits will go to support the author's projects in Guatemala.
