Product Description

Product Description

It’s all about that second chance…

Sometimes we’re lucky enough to get that second chance—in life and in love. That Second Chance Series are stories of strong women who battle heartache and loss with courage and determination to find new paths and true love. These books are standalones and are NOT related. Therefore, the characters from one story will not appear in another. What ties them together? A common theme—belief in the beauty of that second chance.

Pulling Home is Book One in That Second Chance Series.

She'll risk anything to save her child…even the truth

It’s taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She’s created the perfect life—a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and a man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn’t even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story…and forgetting her? Near impossible.

When a shattering illness strikes Audra’s daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.

About the Author

Mary Campisi should have known she’d become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the endings to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes. When she’s not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary’s digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or on the prefect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own “hero” husband, on his Electra Glide Classic aka Harley. Mary has been published with Kensington, Carina Press, The Wild Rose Press, and Jocelyn Hollow Romance.

More About the Author

A woman once told me my stories will pull you apart and put you back together but never in quite the same way. I should have known I'd become a writer when at age thirteen I began changing the ending to all the books I read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, (very short lived), receptionist in a swanky hair salon, (great cuts, no money), accounts payable clerk, (ugh- not for a right brainer!),and practice manager in an OB/GYN office,(good job, great boss),for me to rediscover writing.

When I'm not writing or following the lives of five "almost" adult to young adult children, I'm digging in the dirt with my flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking our rescue lab mix, Cooper, or on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with my very own "hero" husband on his Electra Glide Classic aka Harley.

I have published with Kensington, Carina Press, and The Wild Rose Press.

4.0 out of 5 stars A soap opera comes to life. 22 Oct 2012
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
For nine years Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept all her secrets safe. Those nine years were spent in San Diego, two thousand miles from her hometown of Holly Springs, New York. She has created the perfect life - with a wonderful husband, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for the award-winning daytime soap "On Eden Street". When her husband dies suddenly, Audra must return to Holly Springs for the funeral and face the community that has not forgotten her mother's scandals and a man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is one of the best pediatric neurosurgeons in the country. People fly from all over the world to see him. Nine years ago Jack and Audra had spent a short time together in bed. He has always regretted telling Audra that they were over. He has always regretted taking a ski trip to get his head together. And he has never forgiven Audra from running across country with his brother, Christian, before he returned from the trip to express his love for her. Jack is about to become engaged to Leslie Richot when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter.

Once Audra returns to San Diego from burying Christian, her eight year old daughter, Kara, is diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. (The skull is too small for the brain, so the cerebellum and brain stem are being pushed downward and compressed into the spinal canal.) Ironically, Jack is the top surgeon recommended. For Kara's sake, Audra turns to Jack to save her child. But to save Kara, Audra must find out the medical history of her own father. The only person her mother had confessed the man's name to was Pastor August Richot, Leslie's father. And if Pastor Richot breaks his vow to save Kara's life, it would harm many of the locals' lives.

**** FOUR STARS!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pulling Home by Mary Campisi 1 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback
When Audra's husband Christian suddenly dies, she finds herself back in their home town with their eight year old daughter Kara for Christian's funeral. After living away for nine years and with only occasional visits back, Audra is disliked by Christian's family who blame her for Christian moving away and when Audra faces Christian's brother Jack it soon becomes clear that Jack and Audra share more than a history together when family secrets are revealed.

At first reading this book I felt overwhelmed by just how much tragedy happens so fast. I would have put the book down only the author writes in such a way that is filled with mystery and suspense that I had to keep reading on to find out what happens. Sadly what followed was more drama and tragedy like what you would find in an American soap but is just too much in one book. There is an audience for this kind of writing but for me personally it's just not my sort of escapism that I enjoy, although other people may really enjoy this. On a positive the book did hold my attention until the end of the book and I saw potential that would have been a very good story if there were not so many characters easily killed off and tragedy surrounding most of the characters, which is what, spoilt the book for me.

I really loved this book. I had read Mary Campisi's A family affair before reading this one. I loved both but this was my fave! The characters are easy to take to and the writing is great. I recommend this book!

2.0 out of 5 stars I didn't finish it 27 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like 'soft' porn - which I don't - then you'll probably like this but books like this should come with a warning - one reads the synopsis and perhaps the first page and thinks it looks all right so you buy it - how very wrong you can be and I doubt I'll ever buy another of this writer's books.

Good reading in the main but this is the same as I usually find with US authors, too much minor detail detracting from the main story and I generally flick through it.
