Declared "a writer to watch" (Publishers Weekly, starred review), New York Times bestselling author MarIa DueNas pours heart and soul into this story of a woman who discovers the power of second chances. With her debut novel The Time in Between, MarIa DueNas garnered outstanding acclaim and inspired a TV series, dubbed the "Spanish Downton Abbey" by the media. USA TODAY said of the book: "From a terrific opening line to the final page, chapters zip by at a pulsing pace." Now DueNas returns with a novel about a heartbroken woman's attempt to pick up the pieces of her shattered world. Blanca Perea is a college professor in Madrid who seems to have it all. But her perfect career and marriage start to unravel when her husband of twenty years suddenly leaves her for another woman. Devastated, Blanca is forced to question the life she once had and how well she truly knows herself. She leaves Madrid for San Francisco, where she becomes entrenched in the history of an enigmatic Spanish writer who died decades earlier. The more Blanca discovers about this man, the more she is enthralled by the ill-fated loves, half truths, and silent ambitions that haunted his life. With lush, imaginative prose and unforgettable characters, The Heart Has Its Reasons is a journey of the soul that takes listeners from Spain to California, between the thorny past and all-too-real present. It is a story about the thrill of creating one's life anew.
