How Far is Heaven

Parker and Priscilla Wilfork are happily married with two children. Life seemed perfect and peaceful until Parker goes on a business trip and does not return. Priscilla finds her world turned upside down when she searches for answers to how and why Parker disappeared.

One night Priscilla has a dream that Parker is an angel. Does this mean that Parker is now dead? After two years and no sign of Parker except in her dreams, Priscilla makes the decision to tell her children that their father has gone to Heaven.

Priscilla tries to get their lives back together until one day Deanna disappears too. Now Priscilla must go on a quest to find her daughter before it’s too late. She fears her daughter’s disappearance might be connected in some way to her husband’s. Can Priscilla go on with her life if she loses Deanna too?

With the help of a handsome police Sergeant, Blake Furelli, they work together to try to find Deanna and solve the mystery behind Parker’s disappearance. During this trying time, Blake, who suffered a loss of his own, feels drawn to the ethereal beauty of Priscilla.


Excerpt from How Far Is Heaven

Priscilla’s thoughts were of her daughter and she could see Deanna being pulled away from her. She could hear her daughter’s cries for help. Priscilla looked around in her dream but couldn’t find Deanna. She saw a blinding white object coming toward her. It floated and blinked as it moved. She felt a kinship to this now familiar light.

The white object came closer and closer but it never touched her, but she felt calm and safe, not at all threatened. Priscilla tried to talk to the white object to ask it to help her daughter who was crying. Priscilla felt that the white object would take care of Deanna and that she shouldn’t worry about her daughter. She felt a calm presence around the white object as it hovered over and around her. It was not a dream. It was really in her room. Something touched her face fleetingly like a butterfly and then flit away. Priscilla watched in awe once again as Parker appeared in front of her and flew away on a pair of large white wings into the bright white light.
