This novel certainly has a lesson to teach about priorities and how our pasts can negatively influence the people we become if we lose sight of Jesus. It is a similar premise to the classic Christmas tale, It’s a Wonderful Life, except the hero (heroine) is a mom in a fast-paced job in the 21st century.
Sarah Harper is driven to achieve success no matter what the cost. She wants to do good and not hurt the people she loves–especially children and her husband, Joe–but her desire to succeed in her career too often leaves little time for family.
One cold, autumn afternoon, all of that changes when Sarah’s car plunges off a bridge and into a river. She is presumed dead by those on the “outside,” but Sarah’s spirit is still very much alive. What she discovers on the other side transforms everything about Sarah’s view of life–past, present, and future.
When Sarah is revived, she is a changed woman. And the unsuspecting world around her will never be the same again.

For people who enjoy a book full of everyday drama, this would be a good pick. Sometimes things seemed a bit exaggerated and I was hoping for a little faster pace with action, but the point of the novel was clear. Treasure the things that are most important…while you can.
