Book Description

Oct. 26 2011
In the early years of the twentieth century, a young boy and his foster sister died. Their souls did not pass into Heaven, however, and the two young spirits waited patiently for their mother to come to them. Even though Rosemary Sullivan-McGinty couldn't see her dead son and foster daughter, her mother's intuition convinced her that they were still close at hand. She pined day in and day out, for her lost little ones, and she refused to leave the farmhouse.

Rosemary died in 1940 and the old farmhouse in which their family lived - and died - would soon be abandoned. It has been empty since then.

Now, one hundred years after the children died, their story is being told. Rosemary found a way, and through her beyond-the-grave collaboration with Sophie, the children were rescued from their farmhouse. This is the story of a mother's undying love for her children - and how that power reached far beyond the grave to help them find their way back to her on the other side.

Author Jo Macleod has shaped this fictional tale around her own life experiences. This is their story, based on the true events of their spirit rescue.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional roller-coaster ride May 24 2012
By Donna S
What a story, it begins with a beautiful romance and takes you through the highs and lows of life back in the time. How descriptive this writer is, she makes you feel part of the story and pulls you in to the pages you are reading, can't put it down. Then tragedy strikes and you feel the emotional turmoil and sadness. She will make you cry and want to read more. Her poignant style will hold you throughout. She makes you feel each event as if you were there. An awesome ending, very uplifting, unexpected and inspirational, leaves the reader with hope and wondering if it was all real? I finished the book in two days and when I was done I was still looking for more. The story stayed with me for weeks after I had read it. The characters are so alive and life like and even now a month later, the story still haunts me. I just can't shake off this book. I hope she writes more. I will certainly be watching out for her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars pleased and left wanting for more April 3 2012
This book had me hooked. I had trouble putting it down, wanting to know more, and to find out what happens to these dear characters.
It is loving, it is shocking and it can bring tears.
I want to thank the author for sharing this vision and experience with her readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised me with personal insights Feb. 22 2012
The characters living life in a farming community in Ireland were rich and warm, with a happy demeanour toward the hard work required. The story drew me in, and then I got to know Rosie and the depth of despair she faced. I found myself making different choices about how I view my work, my role as a parent, and my compassion for friends who faced similar lives to Rosie. The final chapter surprised me with how the story came about and why, and I'm eager for the author's next book.

3.0 out of 5 stars good story Oct. 3 2012
By Joseph L. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
HEAVEN HELP US is a good story with believable characters. I'm sure the book required considerable research because it takes place in Ireland in the late 1800s.
The book could turn into a very good book with proper editing. It lacks proper formatting, structure, punctuation, spelling. Even with those problems, it is a facinating read. I hope the author can find someone who can edit it and turn it into another ANGELA'S ASHES.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! Jan. 24 2012
By Tracey V - Published on Amazon.com
I picked up the book and was mildly interested at first, after the first page I was hooked!
I couldn't put the book down. I would even brush my teeth while reading.
Jo Macleod is a story teller extraordiaire and puts you so far into the story that you can smell the biscuits baking. The characters came alive and I felt as though I were right there listening to the conversations from the next table over.
I have to admit I was disappointed that the story ended, I'm hoping Ms Macleod writes a sequel or another "can't put it down" special!

5.0 out of 5 stars A glimpse into our unspoken selves... May 14 2012
By SOULITERATI - Published on Amazon.com
An amazing story filled with history, drama, suspense, and most importantly, lessons we all can learn from. This book was written with great detail that it literally takes readers into a vivid journey along with its characters. It opens your mind and soul to the world unseen and helps you realize there is more to life than what we may seem to know here. Most importantly, it teaches you that letting go is the first step to freedom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven Help Us...I need more! March 1 2012
By M. Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
For me, a good book takes me into the world that the characters live in, where I can feel the grass on my feet, hear the sounds of the horse while it pulls a buggy down a dirt road,and your book did that for me. Last, but certainly not least, it left me wanting more story.
I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
