I hate myself for liking this stupid book! I hate myself even more for considering reading more of Nicholas Sparks' books!! It's just that it's not often you find a male writer who's an unabashed, treacly-sweet romantic--how could any girl resist?
In 1848, Marietta Davis had a vision where she was taken to heaven. She was in a coma for nine days and when she woke up, she told what all she saw. She was taken to where small children are taught the things of God. “Real-to-life scenes are presented to the infants to teach them about past events or to illustrate important principles.” She watched as they saw Jesus birth, crucifixion and resurrection. Upon first arriving in heaven, Marietta meets a little boy. She’s able to see his parents on earth, grieving for him. The boy asks her to give his parents a message when she goes back: “…tell them we are happy here. Tell them we have no sorrow. We are always with our guardians, and we love everyone – and Jesus our Redeemer above all. Tell them we are waiting patiently for their arrival here...” Before coming back to earth, Marietta met Jesus. He told her to tell what she experienced and that she’d soon be back…and wouldn’t have to leave. This book was very insightful. Heaven is something that’s hard for me to comprehend so to read of someone who had a vision makes it seem slightly more real for me. I had never thought about children needing to be educated on the things of God. I think this book could be a good starting place on understanding heaven.
