This novel has been previously published as Phoenix Falling.
It is now being rereleased under its original title, The Spiral Path.


The second contemporary novel by New York Times bestselling author, The Spiral Path sweeps from the distant mountains of New Mexico to the rolling hills of the English countryside in a story of love, loss, reconciliation - and the hard work of making movies.

For years, Kenzie Scott was everything to Raine Marlowe - the friend she turned to for courage and comfort, the lover who touched the hidden depths of her heart, the husband she adored but never really knew. Even as their marriage disintegrates into a civilized divorce, he helps her achieve her dream of becoming a director by agreeing to play the lead in The Centurion, the movie she has dreamed of making for years.

Rainey knows the role of the mysterious, tortured hero is perfect for Kenzie - but he fears that the character's dark secrets may be dangerously close to his own. When filming begins, Kenzie realizes that he must make peace with the tragic past he has buried for years - or lose the one woman he will love for all time...

The Spiral Path was named a "Top Pick!" by Romantic Times Magazine.

Praise for The Spiral Path:

"The Spiral Path is one of the most gripping and darkly emotional books to come along in a long while... [Putney's] books hold out such promise of hope, redemption and triumph that you will be unable to put them down."
- Romantic Times

"Putney handles her potentially melodramatic material with emotional honesty and insight while maintaining the taut romantic tension between her richly developed, complicated protagonists."
- Publishers Weekly

"As always, Putney can be relied on to deliver something different. The result is a book that will take your breath away from the first page to the last... . there is only one word for it: unforgettable. Ultimately, it's a keeper of a story that only an author like Putney can tell - and tell very, very well."
- AllAboutRomance.com

"Mary Jo Putney is writing from her heart and soul, and the writing is divine in The Spiral Path. It takes you down some harrowing rabbit holes from hell but then it spits you out into the sparkling rays of the sun and surrounds you with the glorious glow of love. Ms. Putney is first class all the way!"
- The Belles and Beaux of Romance
