When Reynolds takes on the challenge of a new project, his world collides with that of Liz. Neither of them expected their professional relationship to evolve into friendship, or love.
But life is never simple.
Faced with complications from family, friends, and colleagues, Liz and Reynolds are left to decide whether two people from such different worlds can find happiness together.
Can they get past the pain, fear, and guilt and risk their hearts to love again?
What a heartfelt, emotional journey this book is. It is about moving on and finding love after the love of your life is ripped from you. How to do you do it? How do you find the strength?
Liz Atwater finds herself a widowed, single mother of three when her husband is murdered in front of her eyes. Though her heart is shattered, she had to find the strength to keep going for her boys. They are now her purpose, her only focus.
Reynolds Carter is a hot shot, mega star actor who is just coming out of a very pubic break up. He flies home to his parents to find some peace and perspective. While he is on sabbatical, he learns about Liz's husband is becomes inspired to tell his story. After a little convincing, Liz gets on board and, not only tells their story, but helps write the screenplay.
They both fall hard. Reynolds is more accepting of the fall. Liz is riddled with guilt for wanting another man, and is also afraid to risk her heart, and those of he children, on him. She knows he belongs in L.A. and to the Hollywood world, not in suburbia.
Past Heaven is Reynolds' story of finding himself and being true to that self in a world of fake. More importantly, it is Liz's story of healing. In her healing, she finds her true self and acceptance of her life and what it becomes. And her sweet boys... I fell in love with them. There was a time or two that I shed some tears for them, for the whole family. Underneath all the heartache and grief is love, old, new, and everlasting. The transformations in this story were heartwarming, showing there is life, and love, beyond tragedy.
