A Gemstone Book (TRADE PAPERBACK) - 403 pages: **** When Danny Davenport and Nick Nicholson first slug it out on the south end of the football field they are two elementary-school innocents already troubled by the prospect of losing their youth. Then comes Lily Winterspring, binding them together "with all the pain of a splinter sewn through [their] hearts." The bitter flows out of the sweet and the bonds between the two are tested, first by sudden tragedy and then by a monstrous duplicity that slowly comes to the surface. **** Combining the intimacy of family and marital relationships, together with a candid yearning and genuine moments of suspense, HEAVEN'S WAY is a deeply moving story about love, loss, and betrayal - and the redemption only faith and devotion can bring. **** Written in the form of a memoir, with confession at its center, and driven thematically by elements of metafiction, HEAVEN'S WAY stands in a genre of its own.
