“An authentic page turner…. Rogers [vividly] captures this era of Elvis records and small-town Maine fishing life.” —Down East
Written on My Heart: a Novel by Morgan Callan Rogers
"I loved Morgan Callan Rogers’ Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Sea, and I loved the chance to catch up with the magnificent Florine in the wonderful Written on My Heart. Florine’s unmistakable voice, her approach to the challenges of raising a young family on the rugged coast of Maine, and her search for why her mother vanished years earlier make for an unputdownable novel about love in its many forms that will linger long after you’ve turned the last page." —Ellen Baker, author of Keeping the House and I Gave My Heart to Know This

Morgan Callan Rogers, a generations-back native Mainer, grew up in Bath, Maine, an historic shipbuilding city located on the mighty Kennebec River. A town of approximately 10,000 people, Bath is central to two of the most beautiful beaches in the world - Reid State Park in Georgetown, Maine, and Popham Beach in Phippsburg, Maine. During the summers, she and her family shared a small cottage along the New Meadows River in West Bath, where lobster boats chugged out every morning and came back in the early afternoon. This entire area is surrounded fishing villages strung out along points of rocky coasts and little islands. State parks abound. These places were the inspiration for the setting for her books, Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea, and Written on My Heart: a Novel.
