Under Heaven is a novel on the grandest narrative scale, encompassing the intimate details of individual lives in an unforgettable time and place.

Bill Wiese obviously booked his trip on the wrong web site and found himself in hell.   Every once in awhile, a book comes along that is more than just a good story from a talented author, but a truly remarkable work that has the power to change the lives of Author: Sadie Trombetta.
