This is a story about the author’s loss of joy after the death of his best friend, his two year old daughter and then his mother. Well, let me rephrase that: it is a story about the hope of Heaven and regaining joy! This is such a moving book, and I could so closely relate to the author, that I read it in one sitting. Yes, everything else was pushed aside so I could read this book and take from it the message God wanted me to hear.
You join the author on a journey through Heaven. As the journey progresses, the author meets acquaintances and loved ones from his past and yes, he does see his best friend, mother and his daughter. And yes, you will cry! Of course, the book is fiction because none of us know such details about Heaven, however, I do believe that God does reveal things like this to us and I do feel that God did just that with Mr. Smith!
If you have experienced the searing pain of losing a loved one, especially a child, then you certainly need to read this book! I was moved, inspired and filled with hope and joy for what is to come. I am thankful that Mr. Smith has shared his dream with us and I’m tickled to think that my children know his child in Heaven…I just know they do!!
