The Blasket Islands are the heart of Ireland - once populated with some of the most famous Irish writers, they are now abandoned, filled with nothing but wind and silence. Kate Moreton, a PhD student at Dartmouth, is in Ireland to research the history of the Blaskets, not to fall in love. She has a degree to finish and a life back in New Hampshire that she is reluctant to leave.

But fall in love she does, with both the wild, windswept landscape and with Ozzie, a Irish-American fisherman with a troubled past who shares her deep, aching love for the land. Together, they begin to build a life on the rocky Irish coast. But when tragedy strikes, leading Kate on a desperate search through Europe, the limits of their love and faith in each other will be tested.

Review quote

Praise for Seven Letters:

As rich and mystical as its Irish setting, this is an unforgettable story of love in all its glorious imperfections. Gorgeously written by an author who knows how to plumb the depths of the human heart, this book will linger in the reader's mind long after the last page is turned. - Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author

Seven Letters by J.P. Monninger is as romantic as the thought of Ireland and as realistic as Veterans Day. This compelling, intelligent, heart-breaking, heart-saving book is a must read if you like a powerful romance. I read it in 2 days, weeping and eating chocolate. I was astonished by the ending--don't look! A friend told me about it, and as your friend, I'm telling you. --Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author

Praise for The Map That Leads To You:

"Romantic and unforgettable." --Nicholas Sparks

Monninger's debut novel will strike a chord with fans of Nicholas Sparks' sweeping and sentimental tales. --Booklist

"A gossamer confection, spun sugar at the summer carnival. It's also an inspiriting estival fling, one that, as Heather says of her relationship with Jack, melts any residual winter ice. --The New York Times Book Review
