HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING is a good - not great - whimsical Christmas story. I read a few of Mary Higgins Clark's novels several years ago and enjoyed them. This collaboration with her daughter is not up to par with that earlier work, but it's still entertaining. It was a nice stocking stuffer gift.
Sterling Brooks has been waiting outside Heaven's gate for many years and is given a chance to go back to Earth and help a sad little girl, to make up for his indifference to others throughout his life.
The girl, Marissa, has been without her father and grandmother since Christmas, the year before. What Marissa doesn't know is that they had to go into the witness protection program because of something they witnessed after entertaining (they are singers) at a Christmas party thrown by mobster brothers. Sterling's job is to find a way to remove the threat separating Marissa from her dad and grandmother - not an easy task, but easier when you've got a few heavenly tricks up your sleeve.
HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING is short, sweet, amusing, sometimes a bit silly but altogether a decent story that can appeal to all ages. It's not particularly memorable, but it's a pleasant way to spend a cold winter's afternoon.

... This is not intended to be a heavy read. It is a light and breezy holiday tale. With this in mind, the book fills the bill of a light, quick holiday read quite well. Who needs a big, heavy read during the hectic holiday season? I need a light escape. On that note:
Sterling Brooks has spent nearly half a century as a bench warmer outside of heaven. He never did anything good enough to gain admission, but it seems that he mustn't have done anything bad enough to have to go the other way either. His sins were sins of omission. He didn't notice what needed to be done, thus he did not do it. Those on high decide to give him a chance to redeem himself. He is sent back to earth, to find someone who needs his help, and to help them.
Upon his return to earth, he starts looking for who needs help, when he stumbles across the person who he knows almost immediately is THE person whom he was sent to help. He actually learns to see the plight of others, and learns to care.
It is a cute, well spun tale. If you need a holiday distraction, this could well be it.

The book begins with Sterling Brooks. He didn't lead an exemplary life-he was too self-absorbed to ever really think about anyone else or make a commitment to the woman he loved. On the other hand though, he did have some good character traits. His actual misdeeds were few-his were sins of omission, but not comission.
It is just a few days before Christmas. For about 46 years, Sterling is lingering in the celestial waiting room outside the heavenly gates. He is awaiting summons from the Heavenly Council. Will he be deemed fit for entrance into heaven? At last the day comes and the council settles on a test for Sterling-he will be sent back to earth and given a real opportunity to help someone else as he never has before.
Sterling Brooks will find himself in Manhattan, at the skating rink in Rockefeller Center. Among the skaters is a heartbroken seven-year-old named Marissa, and as Sterling soon realizes, it is she he has been sent to help. Marissa's sadness comes from her separation from the father she adores greatly, and her sparkling grandmother who is owner of a popular restaurant. Both have been forced into the Witness Protection Program because two mobsters, the Badgett brothers, have put a price on their heads
to prevent their testifying against an arson case.
I enjoyed the short book as a whole, and love Mary Higgins Clark's writing a lot.

HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING
AUTHOR: Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster
REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades
BOOK REVIEW: This is one of the best stories I have read in ages. It is a story of an "almost" angel who is sent back to earth to help a young girl and her family. Witness protection has separated the girl from her beloved father and grandmother. With a price on their heads for what they have heard, they are unable to come home for Marissa's birthday. Sterling, the "almost" angel, is sent to help Marrissa. Since he was a rather selfish person on earth and the Heavenly Council wants Sterling to provide he is worthy of entering the Heavenly Gates.
I had a very hard time putting this book down. Mary Higgins Clark is the reader and I believe that adds to the telling of the story, as she is co-author. Knowing the way the story should be told helps in reading it to others. This is a wonderful tale of one person helping another and the wonders that can occur when we are willing to come to the aid of others.

Well, being the long-time Mary Higgins Clark fan that I am I really thought I'd like this book. But truth be told, this holiday "thriller" is a thunker. It delivers no pinache or pizazz and is written on a 3rd grade level. As a Christian, I am also unhappy with the plot. It's the most unoriginal and tired storyline I've ever read, due to the poor writing it almost is as though they're making fun of Christianity! The lead character was a self-absorbed jerk who lived only for himself and was afraid of commitment "here on earth," so the saints send him back to prove he's got a good heart. You read the first chapter and you know exactly how the darn thing will end.
It is not chilling with mystery. The only criminal aspect is that the little girl this kindred spirit is to save has a father in the Mafia. They try to make it a heart-warming tale as well (which puts the hope of any book being a good mystery right in the stew pot with the burner on high).
Mary does well on her own, but Carol's books are notoriously bland. The recipe for a good mystery book simply does not have "co-write with your daughter" in the ingredients. Pick up It or On the Street Where You Live for a suspense novel you'll never forget.
