Heaven and Earth is the second installment of a series about the descendants of three witches who fled 1622 Salem to Three Sisters island. This episode is deputy Ripley Todd's story. Now that her brother, Zack, and his new wife, Nell, are married, settled and safe, it's time for her to find a place of her own. For years she and Zack have shared the rambling, seaside house where they both grew up. Ripley's always been secure with herself, her way of life and her job working at her brother's side. The only thing she can't come to terms with are her powers. She denies them at every turn because these powers are the one thing she can't understand or control.

Ripley's fierce denial has put a strain on the once solid friendship between herself and Mia. When MacAllister Booke comes to town to investigate the legends surrounding Three Sisters Island, he turns Ripley's secure world upside down with his questions and his complete acceptance of what she is. His fascination in finding 'real witches', his enthusiasm for his chosen profession as a paranormal investigator, and most especially his patient campaign to win her heart, eventually break down all Ripley's barriers. But she and Mac can't find happiness until they overcome a past evil that wants to destroy them all.

Once again consummate story teller, Roberts, weaves a bewitching tale featuring her usual cast of fascinating and strong characters and top-notch plotting that leave devoted fans of her work hungering for more. Luckily Mia's story, Face the Fire, is due out soon!
