Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Julianne MacLean comes an inspiring novel about secrets, forgiveness, and second chances. It's the newest title in her popular Color of Heaven Series, where people are affected by real life magic and miracles that change everything they once believed about life and love.

It's been three years since Emma Cochran endured the worst possible tragedy - the sudden, unexpected death of her two-year-old son. The emotional trauma tore her marriage apart, but now her divorce is final and she wants to begin again. She's found happiness at last with her fiancé, Luke, who is eager to start a family with her.

On the other side of the country, single mother Bev Hutchinson watches helplessly as her five-year-old daughter Louise drowns in a high-profile boating accident. Miraculously, Louise is brought back to life by first-responders, then claims she went to heaven. The news causes a media frenzy surrounding the little girl, and Bev does everything she can to shield herself and her daughter from the relentless swarming of the press.

Lives collide when Emma becomes obsessed with the story of the child, thousands of miles away, who drowned and went to heaven. She wants to connect with the mother, but Emma's fiancé is against the idea because he wants her to let go of her grief and move on.

But sometimes, moving on isn't the right choice when miracles are leading you back to your past - toward something, or someone, who was your destiny all along.

Heaven is here if we open our hearts.

I absolutely love this author and this series. The novel is filled with every emotion from hopelessness, fear, anger, happiness to love. A truly satisfying read. Each character is fully formed, complex and realistic. I cared deeply for each and every one of them. It gave me a renewed appreciation for life's trials and miracles. ENJOY!!

THERE REALLY ARE SILVER LIVING IN LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was the best of the series. I appreciated that the relationships get going early on in the book. I would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the couple going to the physic person to talk to the dead son. Nope. I do not believe in this. It sets up a false reliance. And people get jilted out of funds. I did not like how Emma treated Luke. You can see from the very first Emma was going back to her husband who had a "change of heart." Emma should have been up front about her feeling and not tried to hide them from Luke. She knew his relationship with other women and how he felt about liars. I could not feel sorry for her.

I so appreciated how Bev handled her daughters tragedy. She did everything she could to keep her safe. One never knows how a journalist hounds a person just to get a story. I know not all journalist are not like this but the bad ones over shadows the good ones. I just wish they could put themselves in the persons shoes to see how it feels to be treated like dirt just to get a story. I struggled with Bev in how she handled the father of her baby. This issued started in the The Color of a Christmas Miracle book. It did not make sense to not let the father know about the baby. Bev as an ethical person it just did not work for me.

Everything works out and I am glad Luke finally finds his love.

Good tie in

I’m not sure if this is the last of the series, I hope not. I like how Bev from the previous book is featured. Some of the other characters make a brief appearance. I did enjoy this book very much.

This series is fantastic!

Rarely do you read a book, much less a series, in which the characters show their faith and love for God and each other, without being preachy or having you get the feeling that you are having a Bible lesson. these books are so interesting and sweet, and I just loved how they expanded on the question that's in a lot of our minds regarding past lives. I'm sad to have just listen to what I think is the last book in this series. I hope that the author will continue writing this series. I also like the fact that there is no cursing, especially the GD word, which always makes me think less of an author who feels the need to use it. the series has left me with things to ponder.

A well crafted book of hurt and forgiveness

How can a story not be fantastic with children and dogs? However there is so much more , with well developed characters and a story with ( not always unexpected) twists and turns.
Hearing the story ads so much more depth to it,
