The overview of her life sets the background for her encounter with the afterlife. Her life after the encounter feeds off the joy and purpose she discovered while there, and which made it possible for her to deal with the severe emotional trauma of losing a child.
The author herself was a very real character and portrayed herself in a very easy-to-relate-to way.
I especially liked the scene where she is drowning in the waterfall and yet feels no pain or anxiety. From our human way of thinking those should have been the most unbelievably awful moments and yet she distinctly remembers being completely bored.
I would have listened to it all in one sitting, even though the pace slowed somewhat after her return to this life, but time did not allow it.
