Publisher's Summary

In a dusty trailer park on the far edge of the California dream, Michelina wants to change the direction of her troubled life but can't find her way. When a new family settles into the rental trailer next door, Micky meets the young girl who will change her forever.

Despite her deformed left leg and withered left hand, nine-year-old Leilani Klonk radiates a buoyant and indomitable spirit that inspires Micky. Beneath Leilani's effervescence, however, Micky comes to sense a quiet desperation that the girl dares not express. Leilani's mother is little more than a child herself, and her stepfather, Preston Maddoc, is educated but threatening. Slowly, ever more troubling details emerge in Leilani's conversations with Micky. Most chilling is Micky's discovery that Leilani had an older brother, also disabled, who vanished after Maddoc took him into the woods one night and is now "gone to the stars".

While the child-protection bureaucracy gives Micky the runaround, the Maddoc family slips away into the night. So Micky sets out across America to find them: for the first time living for something bigger than herself. One Door Away from Heaven is an incandescent mix of suspense and humor, fear and wonder, a story of redemption and timeless wisdom that will have listeners cheering.

    "another great book!"

    Another great book from the master. I have yet to listen to or read a book from Mr. Koontz that was easy to put down.

    "Good but not Koontz' best."

    This was a good story but not one of Koontz' best. I really enjoy his books and have been reading (listening) to them for years.

    Story
    "I love Dean Koontz"

    I literally listen to everything I can find by dean Koontz... and I have yet to have been disappointed... until this book.

    Sorry... I truly found it to be... hard to get through, completely boring, and honestly just not a good story.

    I'm not giving up... everyone can have an off time of things... every once in a while.

    I still love Koontz!

    like all that I've read from Koontz, I was not able to figure it out early on. I continue to enjoy his work.

    "Dean Koontz's best book"

    To bring to life the many faces of Child Abuse without graphically turning ones stomach is something only Dean Koontz can do. The narrator seamlessly brings the story together. But to educate us to the REAL monsters, ones that aren't fiction, is what truly makes this book.
