ONE DOOR AWAY FROM HEAVEN introduces a young woman, Micky Bellsong, searching for meaning in her troubled life. When she meets the radiant Leilani Klonk, a child whose physical disabilities cannot quench her spirit, Micky unexpectedly finds the purpose she so desperately needs. Leilani's stepfather, Preston Maddoc, is a fanatical UFO believer who claims that aliens will heal the girl by her approaching tenth birthday or take her away with them. Micky's foreboding escalates with her discovery that Leilani had an older brother, also disabled who is now "gone to the stars" after Maddoc took him in search of the aliens to "heal" him. When the family vanishes, Micky sets off on a daunting quest to find them, joined by a detective drawn by her passion and courage. Pitted against an adversary as fearsome as he is cunning, they will journey together through terrible darkness to unexpected light.
