Donna and Raymond would be the first to admit their 25-year union wasn’t perfect. But despite all its various blemishes, their life together works, or at least it did until one frigid November night, in a field just a few miles from home, one reckless act throws their lives into a tailspin. Donna is willing to follow a winding path to peace, and turns to her friends and community for help. Raymond, on the other hand, takes a more bare-knuckled approach to life, and believes he’ll solve his own problems, one punch or elbow at a time. A tale of courtship, marriage, grief, joy and a skewed hope for the future, North of Here successfully captures the plight of one family while deftly touching us all.

North of Here is an emotional and realistic story about a families tragedy. It is a true character study. The novel takes us into the lives of Raymond and Donna Phillips. We watch them overcome the cataclysm that has changed their life forever. This is a story of hope, faith and redemption. I highly recommend this novel!

This is a surprising and emotionally intense novel. The characters are real, quirky, hilarious, greedy, egotistical, kind, mean-spirited and in search of hope as they recover from tragedy and learn to live again.  When bad things happen to good people there are many shades of gray, and sometimes a long and unpredictable road to normalcy. The author takes us on this road  in a can't-put-it-down story that warms the heart in the final chapter. One of my favorites so far this year!
