    Recommended Read - A Best Book!

    Two men deeply in love, one precocious boy, and a troubled teenager are the perfect combination in this sexy and heartwarming novel by D. W. Marchwell. An Earlier Heaven is the captivating sequel to Good to Know, and it is absolutely fabulous!

    Jerry McKenzie and David Loewenberger are now married and settled into life on the ranch with Jerry's orphaned nephew and newly adopted son William. David is still teaching school, and Jerry is preparing for an upcoming art exhibit. William is a sixth grader, and he is quite happy with the new life he now has with his two dads. Will William's newfound friendship with Cory bring heartache or joy to this loving and close knit family?

    An Earlier Heaven is realistic and engrossing, and Mr. Marchwell brings the characters vividly to life. David and Jerry are still in the honeymoon phase of their relationship, and it is a sheer joy to watch their day to day interactions with one another. Their lovemaking is intensely passionate and highly sensual. David and Jerry's concern and love for William is touching, and their patience with him is almost endless. The introduction of Cory into their lives is not without some risk given his abusive past, but David and Jerry are helpless to resist when it becomes apparent that Cory is in desperate need of their assistance.

    While the overall tone of An Earlier Heaven is upbeat and positive, Mr. Marchwell keeps the novel firmly grounded in reality with some of life's harsher moments. William has to learn to deal with the inevitable deaths that are a fact of life. Cory's unfortunate home life is yet another sad truth that occurs in today's world more often than we would like. David and Jerry are still contending with the bigotry that sometimes faces those in same sex marriages and relationships.

    D. W. Marchwell achieves an ideal blend of the good and bad times that come with life. There are a few moments that will bring tears and while the most of the tears are happy ones, there will be a few sad ones mixed in there as well. An Earlier Heaven is a beautiful reminder to count your blessings no matter how big or small, and it will linger in your heart and mind long after the last page is turned.
