My review:
Sarah Harper is a wife, mother, and employee. Yet she seems to only see herself as the employee, as she only garners fulfillment in her life by what she accomplishes at her job. As she runs around in the rat race of life, her priorities are skewed and her life is beginning to spin out of control. Sarah doesn't see a problem with her life and how she leads it until she is in a terrifying accident.

The accident takes her on a journey that she isn't quite prepared to see. A journey that explores her past, present, and future in an effort to make her realize the changes that need to be made. Will this journey be enough to send her back to her family or will her choices keep her from being revived?

The book has a Christian based theme to it but it isn't so prevalent as to scare off readers that are not interested in that genre. The story was well written and shows the power of our everyday decisions and how faith and belief can make everything return to the correct path. I enjoyed this book and read it within a few hours over two nights of reading. I hope you will check this one out.

If anyone would like to purchase my copy (hardback), I am only asking for $6 to cover the cost of the envelope and shipping. The first one to leave a comment or email will be the new owner.
