A wonderful afternoon's read! Highly recommended 29 Aug. 2001
By C. Penn - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Callie Prophet might be the bane of Aubrey Lockhart's existence, but she is also his daughter Becky's salvation. When Aubrey looses himself too deeply in his own grief over his beloved wife to be emotionally available to his child, it is the town's post mistress who answers the child's letters addressed to her mother in heaven. And it is the same woman who gives up her job for an opportunity to become Becky's nanny. While she doesn't meet Aubrey's preconception of a nanny (they should be gray headed, hard of hearing and matronly), Callie does know how to bring laughter back into the child's life. Too bad Aubrey's own life can't be resolved so easily. Now his wife is dead, his daughter's in the clutches of a mad nanny, and a huge black cat named Monster is determined to wreck havoc upon his home.
Callie sometimes believes she's been left on the marriage shelf simply because she doesn't control her deplorable behavior. Outspoken, bodacious and daring, Callie doesn't hold her tongue in the face of wrong doing -- be it a child who's neglected by a father or a society matron bent upon passing along ruinous gossip. Further, it was letters that brought Becky into her life, and love letters Aubrey wrote to his deceased wife that caused her to fall in love with him. Too bad it could be letters that also destroy her chance at love before she's truly experienced it. If the plot follows convention a bit too predictably, then these remarkable characters become the breath of fresh air in HEAVEN SENT by Rachel Wilson. As his overwhelming grief abates, the hero's ability to laugh and to enjoy his daughter again can't help but touch the reader's heart. Further, the heroine's irrepressible spirit and determination to help the grieving child provide the perfect counterbalance to the hero's gloom. The pivot point, the six-year-old child that brings this couple together, is perfectly captured in both her newfound happiness, and her terror of the horrible great-aunt who threatens her home. This great-aunt is marvelous villain, as is the Monster cat that manages to wreck his own brand of havoc. Indeed, this extraordinary cast of characters results in a read that comes highly recommended.

Passionate, poetic and humorous tale 25 Oct. 2001
By Kate McMurry - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a postal clerk in the village of Santa Angelica, California, in 1897, Callida Prophet knows it's illegal to read other people's mail. But the heart-rending letters written faithfully by little Becky Lockhart are addressed to her mother in heaven, a deceased local woman named Anne Lockhart. Callie is determined to do anything she can to help the poor child cope with her terrible loss by writing back to Becky and signing her letters, "Mama." Everyone in town knows about, and eagerly follows, this unusual correspondence, which is sanctioned by Mr. Wilson, the Santa Angelica postmaster. Then Becky writes that her father is planning to hire her a nanny, and Callie feels compelled to quit her job and apply for the job.
Aubrey Lockhart, the wealthiest man in town, has been overcome by grief since his wife died a year ago. It is difficult for him to be with Becky, who reminds him of his lovely, gentle wife.
Though Callie is not stern and gray-haired as Aubrey thinks a nanny should be, he can't resist hiring her when he interviews her, because there is something very appealing about the lively Callie.
When Callie first meets Aubrey, he seems stubborn, cold and sarcastic. But when Becky finds the love letters Aubrey wrote to his wife years ago and asks Callie to read them to her, Callie discovers a completely different man who is poetic, passionate and utterly devoted.
Suddenly, Callie sees the moody, mysterious widower with new, more loving eyes....
In addition to a wonderful hero and heroine, with lots of snappy dialogue between them, Becky is an adorable child, and Callie's pet is a super cat named Monster. If you like a light, humorous read that is full of emotion and fascinating conflict, you'll really enjoy this book.

Great cat and neat little kid! 29 Oct. 2001
By Marcy Averill - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really like stories with animals and kids in them. The heroine's cat and the kid she helps out are really neat. I had a little trouble with the hero being very cold in the beginning, but the letters he wrote to his dead wife in their courtship were great. I could see why the heroine fell in love with him after reading them. This was one of my favorite books this year.
