‘Superb writing. Entertaining dialogue. Page-turning tale. Great descriptions of Arizona’s Sonoran desert’ Benjamin Smith
‘Playful. Its voice is brilliantly sustained’ Marion Sinclair
Fiction, Indie Book Reviews, 4.7 out of 5 stars Overall, the book is well-written and inventive.... D. de Simone weaves a fairly simple but elegant tapestry of events, which all loosely fit together in the end but are all threaded in such a random way that they don’t seem be too different from a non-fictional account. The use of the present tense throughout is an interesting choice and lends the narrative an avant-garde flavor, a stylistic maneuver that helps separate the book from more standard fare for novels of this sort.
Verdict: Inventive and well-written, RECONCILIATION: HEAVEN AND EARTH is a fascinating story about theoretical physics, ET phenomena, and New Age beliefs relative to both of the aforementioned.
Reviewed By Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite 5 out of 5: An intelligently plotted and masterfully executed novel with great potential to delight readers, not only those who have a particular interest in quantum physics, but anyone looking for a well-written and engaging story. Diane de Simone’s Reconciliation: Heaven and Earth has a strong setting, a fast pace, and twists that will surprise readers. Diane de Simone weaves suspense into her tale in a way only a mistress of the genre could.
"What I liked about this book: 1) The reluctant protagonist and some of the other main characters grow through adversity in a way that is natural and believable. And it's easy to understand and remember who the characters are. 2) The author is clearly knowledgeable about her setting elements, including not only physical descriptions of locations but also their vibes. It feels like she knows each of these places intimately. 3) The "action movie" premise of this story is plausible, fun, and easy to follow along with. Now, considering the content of the plot, certain people might argue that it's not plausible, and to that I would say a) trust me, it is, and b) even if you don't think it could happen in real life (you're wrong), within the story the author has created, everything is plausible and that should be enough for a piece of fiction.

Martha is inexorably drawn into Don's world, a world which includes shadowy covert operatives. At the same time, she's moved to Tucson, Arizona, her daughter has come to live with her, and a small metal ball discovered in Don’s old oak desk (a ball which emits a bluish halo in the dark, dances to jazz, and communicates telepathically) is talking to her, saying it needs her help.
In this new upended life, she's being forced to abandon old beliefs about the nature of reality while also trying to stay alive.
