More Things in Heaven and Earth, a sweet new series #Giveaway

more things in heaven and earth

Are you a fan of James Herriot? Jan Karon’s Mitford? Patrick Taylor’s Irish Country Doctor? If you answered yes to any of these, then have I got a new series for you. More Things In Heaven and Earth is a new book by Jeff High focusing on the small town of Watervalley, Tennessee.

Watervalley has been without a town doctor for some time, so they decide to try to recruit one to come and serve for at least a few years by promising repayment of their student loans. Luke Bradford isn’t thrilled by taking the small-town post, believing that his brains and skills can be used elsewhere, but he has no family ties of his own, having recently lost the aunt who raised him when his parents were killed in an accident when he was a child. His father was the doctor in a small town, and so that’s probably one reason that Luke feels that he should pursue it.

He feels like a misfit, but despite that, he finds himself being charmed by the town and its people. He might not be so much charmed as surprised, especially when he finds a couple of people who seem to hold their own to his intelligence. One is a surly loner and the other is the woman who has been hired to be his housekeeper and cook.

More Things In Heaven and Earth: A Novel of Watervalley is a sweet, comforting book. It’s a clean read, not containing any sexual content nor swearing that I remember (There could have been an isolated use). If you were drawn into any of the series I mentioned above, featuring strong settings and quirky characters and sweet stories, or if this description sounds like the kind of book you like, then I can highly recommend this new series. The second book is due in October 2014, but you get a hint of what’s to come at the end.

    I haven’t read any of those authors before, but I can relate to the story-line of this book. I’d love to read it.

  2. Marti Tabora says

    I have not read any of the others, but I’m drawn to this book because it has no sexual content or curse words to speak of. Thank you.

    My brother was a Veterinarian for 33 years, before he
    passed away! He was a kind and did a lot of work
    for people who couldn’t pay him, because he wanted
    to help their pets and them. I adore James Herriot,
    The Mitford Series and know that I would love this book!
    Many thanks, Cindi

    I haven’t read anything from the other authors, but I will definitely be looking into them! I love to read, and I always find myself skipping entire sections because of sexual content. It would be quite refreshing to find a good book without offensive language and sex scenes.

    I’ve read the first few books by James Herriot and my kids and mom enjoyed them also. It’s fun look over the shoulders of the vet main character in his books and the viewpoint of the dog. Jan Karon’s Mitford is a series that is more recent for me, reading these cozies is sweet journeying indeed. The Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor is new to me and appears to be another which can translate into a series for PBS.

    I havent read any of the other book series you have mentioned. I like this books cover and Lukes story sounds like a good read.

  7. Mary A says

    Sometimes I just like to read something wholesome yet interesting. I believe books and movies really can be both.
