A British nurse in WWI German-occupied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a cafe...or so it seems. Eve's most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.
When a plan crashes as she's en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?
As High as the Heavens reads as the title implies: a sweeping drama that pulls on the heartstrings, infused with hope and love. Set in war-torn Brussels, Evelyn Marche, a competent and brave nurse, is doing everything she can to provide for her family and assist the resistance at the same time. But of course, being a spy is incredibly dangerous, and she opens herself up to more and more risks. One such risk comes in the form of pilot, Simon Forrester. However, just as it was never a option not to assist with the war efforts, Evelyn doesn't think twice to shelter Simon from the Germans. From the moment she makes that decision, it becomes increasingly harder for her to hide her double life from the Germans and those she loves. With this steady undercurrent of drama and danger, As High as the Heavens takes the reader on a ride filled with highs and lows, joy and sorrow, danger and peace, faith and despair - all to culminate into a journey one will still remember even long after the last page is read.
