    A deeply emotional tale about Sophie Duncan, a successful columnist whose world falls apart after her daughter's unexpected illness and her husband's shocking affair. When it seems nothing else could possibly go wrong, her car skids off an icy road and plunges into a frozen lake. There, in the cold, dark depths of the water a profound and extraordinary experience unlocks the surprising secrets from Sophie's past, and teaches her what it means to truly live...and love.

    What made the experience of listening to The Color of Heaven the most enjoyable?

    Julianne MacLean weaves a very believable story of a Near Death Experience that touches the soul although it is not about a religious experience. The author manages to make you feel the emotions of grief, loss, hope, and joy with equal intensity.

    Story
    (457)

    One night, Peter Lake - orphan, master-mechanic, and master second-story man - attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the affair between the middle-aged Irish burglar and Beverly Penn, a young girl who is dying. Because of a love that at first he cannot fully understand, Peter, a simple and uneducated man, will be driven "to stop time and bring back the dead".

    David says: "Great book and narrator - bad technical glitch"
    "Boring. Boring. Boring. And More Boring."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A plot would have been nice. I listened to two hours and never really found out what the plot was. It certainly never got to the plot described in the synopsis of the story-line.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Helprin’s story?

    Moved exceptionally slow. I kept waiting to find out what the book was about but just became exceptionally bored with descriptions of disconnected events that seemed irrelevant to any story-line!


    What didn’t you like about Oliver Wyman’s performance?

    The performance was just fine.

    Stephanie Nielson began sharing her life in 2005 on nieniedialogues.com, drawing readers in with her warmth and candor. She quickly attracted a loyal following that was captivated by the upbeat mother happily raising her young children, madly in love with her husband, Christian (Mr. Nielson to her readers), and filled with gratitude for her blessed life.

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

    makes you know there truly is life after death and heaven is much closer than we think.
