As the result of a freak accident in the detergent aisle of the grocery store, Rellie arrives in Heaven madder than a wet hen. While working through her "issues" in Heaven, she must also cope with her very own love-struck, seemingly bumbling, guardian angel. As if this weren't enough, she watches, in horror, as her beloved Earth-living granddaughter inadvertently becomes involved in a murder while on a class trip to Philadelphia. Rellie can leave no cloud unturned. She is hell-bent (oops!) to do something to help. She stirs things up in Heaven and heads to the rescue. Thank Heaven! is set in modern times in the neighborhoods of both Earth and Heaven. It is also the story of an elderly bag lady and a down-on-his-luck street-dwelling man, who make an unlikely alliance. It tells of the Hellraisers, a volatile and rough street gang. And it is the story of a young woman's courage. Generously sprinkled with humor, Thank Heaven! is a story of love: the love between a man and a woman; the love of family; and the love of one's fellow beings.
