But Brad has unresolved romantic interests. Maggie ends her vacation believing Brad has no place in her future. She leaves her job and her hometown to pursue her artistic dream.

Life has a way of serving up constant surprises and Maggie Swanson's experience illustrates both the good as well as the not-so-good ramifications. Finding herself down, but not out, she is thrust by the circumstance of fate into a re-evaluation and re-direction of her life

Confused and searching, she wrestles with her emotions and ideals in deciding to take hold of opportunity as it calls at her door. Past hurt, present challenge and future possibilities mix to form a captivating story of personal triumph that will grasp your heart and imagination as Marie Pinschmidt's pen comes to life in this wonderful love story.

Two hearts longing to become one, but driven by the cruel hand of fate in opposite directions, struggle toward one another with unerring accuracy. Dr. Brad Newsome is honor driven in one direction while drawn by love in another.

Rich in masterful detailed illustration, this book will call you to walk a path guided by the author's gifted ability to share deep emotions without the crudeness others resort to.

You'll love it. It's five star and rated for Adults and Teens

This is a charming book. A well written love story, the author uses her knowledge of art, medicine, and history to add detail and description. Hoping for more from this talented writer.

I found this to be a delight to read and a great love story. I could hardly put it down and read in less than a day. The Author had an e-mail address listed on the back cover. I sent her a note and was pleased to get an answer. Great read!

I didn't want to read a story that opens with its characters in Jupiter, Florida, where I had once lived. I felt it would bring back too many memories, but slowly I got into this tender love story.

Even though this is the author's first novel, she keeps the reader interested. Marie Pinschmidt has a way of making the reader see through her eyes.

She keeps you guessing at Maggie's and Brad's meeting while on vacation in Jupiter, Florida. Will they get together after their vacation? Will Brad, a doctor from Virginia go back to his fiancé who waits for him? Will Maggie go back to Ohio, to her medical office job, or will she follow her passion for painting?

Not only does Marie Pinschmidt take you on a history lesson of New Orleans, but as a true artist she paints a picture of you walking the city's streets, listening to Jazz, dining on Jambalaya, or watching the Mardi Gras parade.

The following excerpt shows the author's writing ability: "She was confident she could earn a living by painting, teaching, and holding workshops. There were ways to be happy and fulfilled without relying on a man. She refused to settle for second best just to fulfill the expectations of society."

If you like love stories, with twists and turns that keep you guessing, `Man on the Balcony' is for you.

This charming novel is the perfect companion for a day at the beach or for a long afternoon cuddled up in a favorite chair.

In its timeless story of love aborted by circumstance, this novel compares nicely to classical romance novels by Austen and Bronte. Brad Newsome has all the characteristics of a true hero - stalwart, honorable, and handsome to boot. However, unlike the heroines of old, this thoroughly-modern Maggie has no need of rescue.

What she does have in common with her strong Victorian counterparts is her sense of purpose and self-worth. When her short-lived romance with Brad leads each of them to pursue their separate destinies, we share their journey as life's twists and turns lead them back to each other once again.

Their love affair is a tender story with something to say about persistence and patience in matters of the heart. But beware: you will fall in love with Brad. There is no escaping it.

A popular vacation spot lures Maggie Swanson from the quaint Southern Ohio town she calls home. She soon realizes that even a thousand miles can not distance her from the emptiness and pain she carries in her heart. When a Southern gentleman unexpectedly joins her for dinner, Maggie is surprised by how much she enjoys his company. Events quickly bring the two closer, only for Maggie to learn that the charming man with the charismatic smile can no longer be a part of her life.

Yearning for something more, Maggie returns to her job at the medical clinic in Ohio. Given a rare opportunity to pursue her dream of becoming an artist, she later journeys to pre-Katrina New Orleans where with one brushstroke at a time she faces the canvas of her own life and is determined to make her dreams come true.

In her first novel, Marie Bush Pinschmidt reminds us all of today's uncertainties along with the hopes and dreams tomorrow can bring if only we are willing to take a chance and trust just one more time. Man on the Balcony is beautifully written and has certainly become one of my favorites. Prop your feet up and relax! You will not want to put this novel down.

As a new author, I can learn a lot from Marie Pinschmidt. Her novel, Man on the Balcony, gives me a greater appreciation of the romance genre. Marie's touching, comforting writing style made me feel as though the main characters, Maggie and Brad, were actually friends of mine. I experienced their joy and pain and savored the book; it was my companion for a few days. I didn't want it to end.

The beautifully descriptive settings in South Florida and New Orleans catapults the reader to those locations.

Marie's delicate writing in the romantic scenes evoked just as much emotion in me as in the characters. This novel is a painting in words. I definitely want to read her second novel, Maggie's Retreat.

Beautiful, excellent job.
The author grew up in Gallia Co., Ohio and I know her family so felt a personal connection. My Mother-in-law worked with Marie at the Clinic too. I'm not much of a reader but found it hard to put down the novel until I finished it.
