I listened to this book very shortly after loosing my mother, suddenly and unexpectedly. So, it was a challenging book to read. I think anytime you read someone's interpretation of how death works -- I think that you can get caught up in measuring every word, every interpretation, every point of doctrine. I found that it was much easier to open myself up to the ways in which healing can come from unexpected sources.
I especially enjoyed learning about life on an apple orchard. And, I could recognize in the story some of the universality of loss and grief.
However, that said, I found the device that Mr. Wright used in the cross gardener a little too distracting. I think the author was well-intentioned and I appreciated the uplifting tone, but this isn't a book I could recommend without reservations.
