This book is from my own collection.

It’s a sad story about a murdered young girl who from Heaven watches her family deal with her death and how her murder gets away.

My Thoughts:
I didn’t care for this book. This book was very boring. If I was grading it on it’s boring-ness it would get an A, but I am not.  It’s surprising this was on the best seller list at all.  I feel I should be compensated for the time I lost reading this book instead of reading another more interesting one.

I did like the father of the dead girl.  He never wavered in trying to find out the truth and wanting justice for his daughter’s death.  I can’t say the same for the mother.  She just wanted to forget it about and try to start a relationship with the handsome police office.

This book is mostly likely a fantasy, because we do not know what Heaven is like.  Everyone has a different perception of what the After-life will hold.  I gave this book 2 stars and grade of D because it started out well, but after the first 2 chapters it plummeted.   If you like the book What Dreams May Come, then I would recommend this book, other than that, I would say stay clear of it.
