Click on the link to visit my book page: I Can See Heaven
I Can See Heaven is set in rural Ohio near the dawn of the new millennium, a time when many were worried about Y2K and the apocalypse, the end of the world – terrified, in fact, that things just wouldn’t work the way they should anymore, or at least not the way we wanted them to. And yet, I’m frequently pulled back to a saying my dad has often quoted to me, translated from the French here: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” If you recall, no catastrophe happened at the turn of the century; we kept going on as before – or did we? Did the very experience of that transition cause us to view our lives differently, view the future, the world differently? Did some invisible yet powerful change sweep across all of us in the middle of the night, at 12:01am, on January 1st, 2000? A new millennium was born – were we, too, born anew? In truth, how could we have gone on as before? I Can See Heaven is a novel that explores those anticipatory fears about the end of the world, and in the end offers a way of moving forward, both as we were before, but also as we are now, with our psyches changed by that experience of terror and anticipation and, finally, hope for what was — and is — to come.
