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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes. The author is reading her own words.
Jill is my favorite character because she is so focused and successful.
Her words make new knowledge easier to understand.
I was floored when Jill was concious enough to realize she was having a stroke.
