During the summer of 1942, at a time when the world was already embroiled in the Second World War, twenty-eight-year-old Erica Drake meets Marc Reiser at a garden party. Though the two develop an interest in one another from the start, a seemingly insurmountable rift exists between them-Erica is a Gentile, while Marc is Jewish. However, as their attachment to one another deepens, they soon choose to face the disapproving arguments of their parents as well as their own prejudices. Earth and High Heaven was one of the most highly acclaimed and popular books of its time. Published at the end of the Second World War, it won the Governor General's Award and was the first Canadian novel to reach number one on The New York Times Bestseller list. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
