Heaven
The first book of the Casteel Family Saga
Of all the folks in the mountain
shacks, the Casteels are the lowest
– the scum of the hills. Heaven
Leigh Casteel is the prettiest,
smartest girl in the backwoods,
despite her ragged clothes and
dirty face...despite a father meaner
than ten vipers...despite her weary
stepmother, who works her like
a mule. For her brother Tom and
the little ones, Heaven clings to
her pride and her hopes. Someday
they'll get away and show the
world that they are decent, fine
and talented; worthy of love and
respect. Then Heaven's stepmother
runs off, and her wicked, greedy father has a scheme – a vicious scheme that threatens to destroy the precious dream of Heaven and the children forever!

The first in the Wide World Trilogy
“A sly, highbrow take on
the espionage thriller with a
rich background that lends sophistication to an already opulent story.” KIRKUS REVIEWS

the world's nations hanging in the
balance, a secret affair ends with the
death of a senior British diplomat.

the roof of his mistress's apartment
building – compel his son Max, an
ex-Royal Flying Corps ace pilot, to look for enemies and motives for the killing. Standing in his way are all the powers-that-be, who want the case closed as an accident, thereby avoiding any disturbance of the peace talks with a scandal. Determined to defy them, Max throws himself head first into the dark heart of a seemingly impenetrable mystery – hell-bent on uncovering the truth.
