    Story
    (190)

    In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother Dr. Mary Neal drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died. To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again.

    Richard D. Shewman says: "Christian witness for the most part"
    "As if there."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of To Heaven and Back to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version; I choose audio editions for their ease of use these days.I did not pay attention to the name of the narrator in the beginning. I assumed it was the author, Mary Neal. When I realized it was a different person, I was surprised because the voice and elocution of Rebecca Lowman sounded like a voice that would have come from the intelligent and educated author, and it made me connect more with the story and perhaps with Mary Neal, too. I would be very pleased to listen to Rebecca Lowman narrate additional books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of To Heaven and Back?

    It is difficult to narrow down the most memorable moments. Actually, I suppose if I listened to "To Heaven and Back" during another point in my life, the most memorable moments would be different. However, I found it interesting and intriguing when Mary's son, Willie, mentions to her at a younger age that they both know he would not live past the age of 18. I ponder the connection we have to some people and not others, regardless of relation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Mary and her youngest son, Elliot, are skiing and Mary sprains her ankle. The recovery process while on the mountain seemed straight forward, until Mary related that the rescuers remarked a noticeable change in the effort to complete the process once Mary and Elliot were rescued. I imagined the rescuers supported with supernatural means until that support was no longer needed. I also imagined that the earth adjusted itself to make the recovery process less obstacle-filled as possible, making paths clear and elevation less steep.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have made an appointment with a person who specializes in past-life regression and who also assists her clients with discovering their LBL, life between lives, based on Michael Newton's work.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you, Mary, for listening to and accepting the need, impulse, push, to write this book, and for speaking publicly. I feel blessed because of your blessed experiences.

    In My Stroke of Insight, Taylor shares her unique perspective on the brain and its capacity for recovery, and the sense of omniscient understanding she gained from this unusual and inspiring voyage out of the abyss of a wounded brain. It would take eight years for Taylor to heal completely. Because of her knowledge of how the brain works, her respect for the cells composing her human form, and most of all an amazing mother, Taylor completely repaired her mind and recalibrated her understanding of the world.
