Only Angels Gaze Toward Heaven by John Molik is an emotionally powerful story of love and family, and a man’s struggle to keep them together amidst unusual challenges and conspiracies. Jordan Del Cielo is a man who believes in serving others, even if he feels deeply insecure. Joining Doctors Without Borders is his way of giving to humanity. He meets and falls in love with Miriam and although they can’t have a child, he is happy. That is until Saul Darthe — a ruthless, greedy man with unbridled ambitions — comes into the picture. They are unwittingly pulled into Darthe’s scheme of smuggling a secret advanced technology that is also coveted by the Chinese crime syndicate. An adoption could have fixed their marital problems, except for the fact that Miriam is not who she seems to be. Follow Jordan on a desperate fight to save his family from a world that is not only cruel but evil. But how much fight does he have in him?

Only Angels Gaze Toward Heaven is an engaging story wrapped in a world of cruelty and uncertainty in which a man navigates through the odds, even sinking into depression, to protect the most valued treasure of his life — the infinitely fragile bond of love. John Molik invites readers to take a journey that stares risks directly in the face. The characters are fully drawn and multidimensional and I loved the way Jordan evolved through the story, transforming from a self-doubting man to a hero who will face any danger to keep his family safe and together. It is a deeply moving tale with characters that are sophisticated, genuinely flawed, and convincing. Only Angels Gaze Toward Heaven is balanced and deftly plotted, a tale that will affect readers on many levels.

Great Read!!

The author, John Molik, is so creative in developing this story with all its twists and turns. The book kept my interest from start to finish with the lead character's personal tragedies and triumphs. Growing up in California myself, the author did a fantastic job interweaving real life into his fiction which leant authenticity to the story. Definitely a must read for everyone's reading list!!
