About the Author

After growing up on a farm in rural Tennessee, Jeff High attained degrees in literature and nursing. He is the three-time winner, in fiction and poetry, of an annual writing contest held by Vanderbilt Medical Center. He lived in Nashville for many years, and throughout the country as a travel nurse, before returning to his original hometown, near where he now works as an operating room RN in open-heart surgery.

Reviews

"Told through the eyes of Dr. Luke Bradford, a newly minted MD, the story of the little town of Watervalley, Tennessee, and its inhabitants comes vividly to life. Jeff High's medical background gives him that cutting edge in the technical details of his tale and his love of his native Tennessee and the human race shines from every page. Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is delighted to welcome Luke, a TransAtlantic colleague to be fiercely proud of." --Patrick Taylor, MD, New York Times bestselling author of the Irish Country Doctor novels.

"The best of small-town Americana and the eccentrics who live there are brought to life in More Things in Heaven and Earth. This story warmed me, made me laugh and then kept a smile on my face. It's delightful, compassionate, humorous, tightly woven. If you're looking for a feel-good read, spend an afternoon with Jeff High's novel." --Charles Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Unwritten and When Crickets Cry

"A well-spun story of the mystery and microcosm that is small-town America. Jeff High skillfully captures the healing places, the hurting places, and the places where we so often find out who we are truly meant to be." --Lisa Wingate, National Bestselling Author of Tending Roses and The Prayer Box

"One of the best books I've read in years. Really. And I read a bunch of books. This is the book you should give to your mother and your best friend at Christmas. After you read it yourself, of course...High has a gift for capturing the humor of small town life...The novel sparkles with one-liners.... I fell in love with Watervalley and its citizens." --Southern Literary Review
