Other Writing
Donna N. Murphy wrote a novel about what might happen if a country on the brink of civil war chose another way. To read more about Heaven on Earth. A Spiritual Novel, as well as an excerpt from it, click on Heaven on Earth. A Spiritual Novel.


This story takes place in the suburbs of Virginia and on a mythical island off the coast of Africa. It blends action and romance with mystery, while posing the question: Is there an alternative when civil war seems inevitable?
