"In the tranquil Australian Mountain Town of Walhalla,
Damaged Hearts Can Begin To Mend."
Australian author & Intensive Care Nurse Dean Mayes (The Hambledown Dream, Gifts of the Peramangk, The Recipient) returns to his romantic roots with a heart warming story of starting over & rediscovering love, set in the former gold mining town of Walhalla, Australia where he spent much of his childhood.
The Artisan Heart releases world wide on September 1st, 2018.
Hayden Luschcombe is a brilliant paediatrician living in Adelaide with his wife, Bernadette, an ambitious event planner. His life consists of soul-wrenching days at the hospital and tedious evenings attending the lavish parties organized by Bernadette.
When an act of betrayal coincides with a traumatic confrontation, Hayden flees Adelaide, his life in ruins. His destination is Walhalla, nestled in Australia’s southern mountains, where he finds his childhood home falling apart. With nothing to return to, he stays, and begins to pick up the pieces of his life by fixing up the house his parents left behind.
Isabelle Sampi is a struggling artisan baker raising her hearing-impaired daughter, and has no time for matters of the heart. Yet the presence of the handsome doctor challenges her resolve. Likewise, Hayden, protective of his fractured heart, finds something in Isabelle that awakens dormant feelings of his own.
As their attraction grows, and the past threatens their chance at happiness, both Hayden and Isabelle will have to confront long-buried truths if they are ever to embrace a future.
