Product Description

Product Description

"A box of tissues should be included in the purchase price of this book.... I finished THE COLOR OF HEAVEN in a matter of hours, but I've no doubt the read and the lessons imparted through Sophie's story will stay with me... probably forever. THE COLOR OF HEAVEN is an incredibly poignant and unbelievably gripping novel, deserving Romance Junkies' highest rating."
FIVE BLUE RIBBONS - Chris at Romance Junkies


A deeply emotional tale about Sophie Duncan, a successful columnist whose world falls apart after her daughter’s unexpected illness and her husband’s shocking affair. When it seems nothing else could possibly go wrong, her car skids off an icy road and plunges into a frozen lake. There, in the cold dark depths of the water, a profound and extraordinary experience unlocks the surprising secrets from Sophie’s past, and teaches her what it means to truly live...and love.

Full of surprising twists and turns and a near-death experience that will leave you breathless, this story is not to be missed.

THE COLOR OF HEAVEN is a work of fiction.

"A gripping, emotional tale you'll want to read in one sitting." - New York Times bestselling author, Julia London

"Brilliantly poignant mainstream tale." – 4 ½ starred review, Romantic Times

3.0 out of 5 stars The colour of heaven 12 Aug 2014
By Clare O'Beara TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Your response to this book will perhaps depend on the mood which you bring to it. I was on holiday and in the first quarter I was thinking that I didn't want to read about a child with leukaemia; I was supposed to be enjoying myself. Then I was thinking that I didn't want to read about a marriage breakup - I was supposed to be relaxing.

There are a few references during these parts to 'then everything changed' in some way and as the title would indicate, the narrator, a suburban mother, who tells us more about her teen love triangle than we can be bothered reading but manages no achievements in her life, suffers a catastrophic incident and believes that she sees an afterlife. The writing is careful so that in parts we are unsure of what is going on with her family members but she does seem unfortunate in attracting death and injury.

Maybe I would have liked this better if I brought a different mindset; I considered skipping the rest of the story more than once but persevered and finished. The message of the story is that we should tell people we love them. I'd suggest that women should also aim a little higher in their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near Death Love Story 3 July 2014
By Nannu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I became totally engrossed in it. The storyline was superb. Don't usually read Novels as my preference is for anything to do with the spiritual. This book was a lovely diversion, but still had everything I love to read about. Couldn't put it down. The Author brings you on a real Spiritual Adventure.

No one gets to quit. You keep fighting, every day, and sooner or later, the grief fades a little. You grow stronger, find joy again, and everything gets easier. You come out of it more equipped to handle the next wave, which will come eventually. There will always be waves.” &quote;

Here’s the thing about motherhood. It exhausts you and thrills you. It kicks you in the butt, and the very next second makes you feel like a superstar. Most of all, it teaches you to be selfless. &quote;
