Moments of the Heart Book 1


Maggie Campbell has been running away from her past for seven years. When she finally returns to her family’s small farm for her grandmother’s ninetieth birthday party, she meets the irritatingly handsome new neighbor and dislikes him immediately. So what if he’s charming? His superior attitude and the way her family relies on him gets under her skin.

But when tragedy strikes and he’s the only one who can help, the walls she’s put up are tested. Maggie has no choice but to let her guard down and accept his offer. But can she let go of her reservations and allow her heart to trust again?

About Author Susan Berry…

Susan Berry read her first romance novel when she was ten years old. Her grandmother gave it to her to help pass the time on a long car ride to the Midwest. She grumbled as she opened the book and began reading. Ten miles later, she couldn’t put it down. The characters came alive, the tension between them building as she frantically turned the pages. She had to know how it all worked out. That experience never left her .From that day forward, she read romance novels every chance she found, and reading turned into writing, which eventually led to her first novel, a traditional romance called Dance of the Heart.

Every woman secretly wishes for a man who is both strong and charming enough to sweep her off her feet. A man who can match her independence with just enough force to break through her guarded heart. As someone who loves to escape into the pages of love, she is dedicated to the writing of such novels filled with heartfelt romance that can be shared with every generation.

Along with romance novels, Susan has written several articles regarding social issues close to her heart and had the privilege of being a guest speaker for Together We Care, a diverse group of Puget Sound collaborators who are partnering toward achieving outstanding care for individuals experiencing chronic illness in the community.

Note from Karen: This Banana Bread recipe has been passed down in my family for several generations. It always comes out moist and is a favorite among my children. Enjoy!
3 very ripe bananas (mashed)

½ cup butter (softened but not room temperature. Can use margarine)
1 ¾ cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon milk
¾ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the bananas, butter, sugar and eggs together thoroughly in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl mix 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 tablespoon milk together until baking soda is completely dissolved. Add to the wet mixture. Set aside.

Mix the salt and flour together with a spoon then add to wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Spray the entire loaf pan with Pam and pour in the batter. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not open the oven for the first half hour or the bread will collapse. Serve warm with butter. Store the rest in an airtight container to keep moist. For a special treat you can add chocolate chips to batter before baking or some chopped walnuts.


Thanks, Susan, for sharing your book and recipe with us!
