Description: A prequel to Pamela Parker’s Second SamuelA Higher Place in Heaven is set in 1925, on the front porch of New Hope, the home of Miss Madison. She and her longtime friend and servant, Miss Simpson, live a quiet life just outside the town of Second Samuel with their sons Frisky and US, who are more often found at the fishing pond than in the schoolhouse. When Son and his wife Billie Augusta visit, he finds a document that would forever change the history of New Hope and its residents’ lives. Filled with laughter and tears, anger and forgiveness, this touching story is one that speaks to divisions that we still struggle with today. It also shows that, no matter our differences, love and grace can bring people together and keep New Hope alive.

Cautions: May not be suitable for children under 13 years old.

Credits: Written by Pamela Parker.  Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing.
