Heaven Is High

Heaven Is High Review

Barbara Holloway is a low-key attorney in Eugene, Oregon who left her father’s high powered firm to handle small legal problems for local residents and ponder her own next move. But while trying to sort out her own future, two people, desperate for help, show up on her doorstep: former pro football player Martin Owens and his wife Binnie. Binnie, who is mute, met her husband when she snuck aboard his boat while it was docked in Haiti and smuggled herself into the U. S. Now Immigration is seeking to deport her back to Haiti, which would be a death sentence. Born to a woman from Belize who was kidnapped and enslaved by pirates, Binnie’s only hope is to prove her and her mother’s real identity. With only days to find the truth and protect Binnie, Holloway sets off for Belize. But what she knows is only the tip of the iceberg in what turns out to be one of her most complex, compelling and dangerous cases yet.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

    I love this series by Kate Wilhelm (who is now in her 80's; I hope she had a wonderful vacation in Belize while writing this book, as much of the story is set there). I was confused at first, as so mu...

  • Timna

    I was confused when I started, but then figured out (I think) that this book (although brand new) takes place between the first two books of the series. So, it allows Wilhelm to go back and write a le...

    I enjoy the Barbara Holloway series and have read or listened to most of them. I find them frequently underrated by others, but this one is a departure from her norm. I only recently found out that th...

    Better than #11!! The only weird thing was (if you don't want to get a maybe-spoiler, skip the rest)that we always knew that Barbara would be fine because this all happened when she first met Martin a...

    Biggest departure from the rest of the series. I missed Frank....
