Melanie O'Loughlin of Unity Books reviews The Heavens by Sandra Newman, which is published by Granta. Kate and Ben fall in love at a New York party, where everyone is interning at the UN, the year is 2000 and the future seems bright. Kate, aimless and under-employed, has vivid dreams where she lives in plague-stricken London. In the dream she feels sublimely happy, as if she is on a mission that could save the world. Ben, however, begins to find her more than a little crazy.
