About the Book

This Side of Heaven

Annie Warren never talked much about her oldest son, Brad. Years of failures and bad choices created heartbreaking separation between mother and son. But one dramatic night, a terrible tragedy reveals things about her grown boy that Annie never suspected. He was a good friend, an honest worker, and a hero. Most of all, Annie learns that Brad has an 8-year-old daughter, Savanah.

Meanwhile, in New York City, Fran Ito is a single mother who lives on the streets, lost in a nightmare of drugs and illegal activity. She has no idea what to do with her daughter, Savanah, until she gets word of a financial settlement --- one that might belong to her little girl. Spinning a web of deceit and desperation, Fran connives to get the money --- one way or another.
A story of family secrets, broken relationships, and a love strong enough to span the miles and the years of loss --- This Side of Heaven.
