Interesting take on afterlife

This story is unique and a bit sad. It is about a mother's love and her journey to help her daughter. The story starts off with the mother dying during childbirth. It is sad because it could have so easily been prevented. Her father-in-law is a piece of work.

Narration was fairly good and brought the story to life.

The journey is an unusual one because the mother will have to incorporate one of the 10 commandments into her daughter's life yearly. She will have ten years to get through all of them. It is frustrating that she cannot be much of a part of her daughter's life. Occasionally, she is able to interact with her but very minimally.

It was a good story with some unique ideas about the afterlife. I enjoyed listening to it.

Good book for all ages

This is an entertaining book for any age, if a bit sad. It held my attention from the beginning and I finished in one sitting. The narrator did a good job.

I received a free review copy in exchange for an honest review.
