The title was misleading to me, with the word heaven in the title, I thought it would be about her trip to heaven. However, there was only about one paragraph about her short trip to heaven - and it was unclear just what she'd experienced. The book was actually just the author's biography, with focus on her ministry after her heaven experience. There was nothing wrong with the book, so I gave it 2 stars for effort. I think I would not have put the word, heaven, in the title.

How did this story get published and how could it possibly be advertised as a true story?

Boring and made up, way too many meds!

I have this book for my own and absolutely loved it. I've read a few books from various authors about their journey to heaven and back, but this one touched me on a level that the others haven't. Great read and I will never loan or give my own copy away. I will turn to it when I'm weary and in need of a reminder of what is to come in my next life. Very uplifting.
