Jerry McKenzie never imagined becoming a husband and father. A year after he adopted his nephew and married the man of his dreams, Jerry still cannot believe how lucky he is. David Loewenberger feels the same intense happiness towards Jerry and William. The three have created an ideal family situation that filled a void in their lives. And while William is the perfect son, he has his fathers worried. Jerry and David want their son happy and to make new friends to share his time with. William isn’t a boy who wants quantity; he prefers quality, which is evident when he encounters a high school student named Cory. Cory has his own issues to sort out, but he’s got a heart of gold that is soon recognized by the tiny family. Is there room in the family for one more child?

An Earlier Heaven is the sequel to D.W. Marchwell’s wonderful story Good to Know. William has definitely grown since the first story. While he’s still young and reacts as only an innocent child could to some situations, his raw emotions brought out my protective mother spirit while reading this story. Jerry and David still have that passionate and explosive chemistry that reminded me of how good a relationship could be with the right mate. Cory was an added bonus to the drama. His pain and desire to have someone care about his was so real, I couldn’t help but root for him and hope that he would find the love and shelter he deserved with the family.

There were a few surprises along the way that kept the story moving along at a nice rate. Marchwell has done yet another fantastic job with creating a story designed to draw the reader in and keep you compelled until the final sentence. Those who enjoyed the first story don’t want to miss this superb sequel.
