On the evening of the Great Fire of Chicago, Lucy Hathaway, frantic to get out of the path of the fire, is shocked when a baby is tossed into her arms from the window of a burning building moments before it collapses. Four years later, Lucy has raised little Maggie as her own child. But when she encounters the infuriating and handsome Randolph Higgins, an old acquaintance whose daughter perished in the fire, Lucy knows that Maggie is his missing child. For the sake of the child the two decide to marry, denying their attraction for one another, but passionate clashes over Lucy's increasingly scandalous political pursuits keep them at odds, and put Rand's career -- and their lives -- in jeopardy.
I like to believe I am the person my dogs think I am.
I phone my parents every day, as they are elderly and adorable, and they read me stories every day of my freakishly normal childhood. I was a writer before I learned to read, by creating scribbles on paper and dictating the stories to my saintly mother. You can see examples here: https://plus.google.com/u/1/photos/104585203815605467940/albums/5587379107269629729?banner=pwa&partnerid=pwrd1.
Untold eons later, I still read and write everyday and I've gotten very good at it. I live in a ridiculously gorgeous place in the world--an island in Puget Sound, Washington where we have a lot of the same flowers you grow in the UK. But bigger slugs. Much bigger slugs.
I have lots more to tell you, so please join me on Facebook and check out pictures of my dogs and tell me what's on your mind. https://www.facebook.com/susanwiggs
