How Far is Heaven? opens with a gripping action scene. The stage is set for a story that takes the reader on a tumultuous journey to a seamier side of Paradise. Away from the bright lights of tourist attractions, illegal activities have slipped under the radar, festering unchecked until Louise Golden stumbles upon, or more accurately, drivers her mail truck into, the heart of the matter.
Several new facets of protagonist Louise Golden's character are revealed as the story progresses. During a trip to New York's Manhattan, a new dimension of her personal life unfolds that is both endearing and controversial. Tension builds as Louise experiences conflicting emotions over the death of an estranged family member. The strain of expectations, real or imagined, only adds to her stress.
As mentioned, the novel opens in Honolulu. Louise is suspended from her job over an accident that was beyond her control. While the case is under investigation, she travels to Manhattan, where she attempts to gain perspective into the earlier years of her life. Upon returning to Honolulu, she resumes her search for an evil that has woven its tentacles deep into a segment of life in Hawaii. As that world begins to unravel, Louise is dragged into a situation that turns life-threatening.
Before reading How Far is Heaven?, I wondered how the horse on the book's cover related to a mystery set in Hawaii. Now I know.
I felt like I was in Hawaii sharing the same feelings as Louise!
If you love easy reading books that have a little romance, a little sadness, a lot of action and set in a a beautiful location -- this is the book for you.
Pick up a copy, I know you will not be dissapointed.
Looking forward to the next Louis Golden adventure!!!!
Write on, Laurie!

I can relate to some parts of Golden's life - my father was a German Jewish immigrant to England and then to the States, and my mother was American from Christian roots that went back to the Mayflower. Gordon's family's Judaism is the focus of her time in New York. A the same time, we learn a little more about her Christian roots, too. I enjoyed the Hebrew verses as they hearken back to times I shared Jewish festivities and funerals with my cousins and friends. I also enjoy learning a little more Hawaiian. It does not distract from the story at all, but adds depth to Golden's personality.
The focus is not the mystery in Hanan's tale, but the development of Louise Gordan and her decisions to empower herself and grow from who she has been to become the stronger woman she is today. There's plenty of growing left to do! Curiosity over who she will become makes the next book in the series one to get!
