Editorial Reviews

Review

For a book to hold the reader's imagination, the requirements are deceptively simple: it must engage the reader from the start, it must create characters that we care about, and it must introduce us to a world we know nothing about, and satisfy our curiosity. F. J. Dagg achieves all three in this debut novel. The dialogue is authentic and unforced, we meet a character whom we immediately want to defend from all harm, and the world so cleverly structured for us is not a world at all, but heaven itself. --Thornton Sully, Editor-in-Chief of A Word with You Press and former reviewer for The San Diego Union Tribune

"This masterwork of high fantasy will linger with readers long after they have read the final chapter."

The above is extracted from this book's hook. I tend to view such claims with just a smidgeon of cynicism, but in this case, I can wholeheartedly concur that this story does indeed linger.

It is a story that embraces tragedy, perseverance, compassion and hope with a man-sized helping of fantasy, magic and romanticism.

Kate is a young woman in 1940s America who miraculously survives a pre-birth accident when her parents were involved in a fatal car crash. She is a beautiful and compassionate young lady, but shrouded in a veil of sadness: she is `incomplete'; she loves her friends and family and has a devotional love for children, but she cannot love as a woman loves a man. Laurel is the frail and beautiful angel endowed with the enormous challenge of finding Kate to give her the `Gift' that will render her complete. It's a task of mammoth proportions - an angel is weakened by her existence on Earth. After a short time spent there, Laurel recuperates in The Lowlands of Heaven: the midway point between Earth and Heaven where angels and doves are the post office of prayers from Earth. Her determination to find `her' Kate and restore her to completeness leads this Messenger of Love back to Earth on a hazardous pursuit of the young woman, so that she can give her the `Gift' of her heart and has to draw on every ounce of her again failing strength in her race to find Kate before the consequences of rash decisions prove disastrous.

It was a real pleasure to read such a well-edited book, with only a handful of very minor errors and it is one which leaves you extraordinarily satisfied.

Most of us have pondered the concept of angels, their relationship to Earth, and their influence on human beings. We have also contemplated the idea of Heaven, its association with our material world, and its impact on society. Divine notions such as these have been pleasingly portrayed and skillfully explored in The Lowlands of Heaven, by F.J. Dagg.
Dagg's fantasy novel introduces a thought-provoking and inspiring world that is "halfway to Heaven." A variety of angels in the "Lowlands" exemplify qualities we should all yearn to integrate, not just for our own growth and development but for the benefit of society, as well. We learn from angelic Laurel how perseverance and commitment through the direst challenges (illness, injury, and threats from the dark side) can ultimately prevail--and enrich the world with the afterglow of their expression.
We learn from angels and their human "assignments" about devotion and loyalty--to friends and strangers--two traits that have the power to change the dynamics of the corporeal and the angelic. We discover the power of selflessness and the momentous consequences of thinking beyond our egotistical wants and desires toward the greater benefit of society. We realize the healing power of music and how it can bind people over great distances and draw them ever closer together.
The book's themes of dedication to duty, integrity under challenging circumstances, service to those in needs, and respect for the natural and divine demonstrate its appreciation of the qualities our book awards highlight.
As Dagg bonds us to his enthralling characters, he also demonstrates how each of us, through commitment and selfless devotion, can strengthen character and positively impact the world in which we live.

Angels abound throughout F.J. Dagg's intriguing debut novel, The Lowlands of Heaven, to the point that serious consideration could be given to the author himself. Varying clues throughout this easy read led me to consider perhaps Mr. Dagg hides a set of his own wings, folded into each toher, between the shoulder blades. The author's considerable discriptive talents shine through these pages, showing off heavenly planes, as if he was giving details of his own living room. Perhaps he is! I have been told Oceanside, California, is heaven on earth. Heaven's Post Office, Branch 92 is a physical location in the book, and the reader is welcomed gently, as someone can imagine doing, entering heaven itself. The buildings and gardens, the flowers, the skies, the ponds, are clear to our imagination through the creative lens of his own. But then the scenes come to life as the characters come into play, and through it all a common thread is felt, the master stroke that weaves us in and throughout to the end, the very essence of this surprising little book: universal love.
Whether you believe in the spiritual forces that shape our world or not, one certainly cannot read The Lowlands of Heaven, and walk away with nothing to show for it. The story lingers. I found myself thinking of Kate, a beautiful intelligent earth bound woman whose empathy of war-torn children is in striking contrast to her intuition that something is missing inside herself. I think of Sam, the dashing aviator who falls in love with Kate, and learns she can never love him back, his true chivalry comes to the fore.
