A Piece of Time by Victoria Fielding

A Piece of Time

"This is everyone’s story, not just Lilly Hunt’s.
Like Lilly, who hasn’t endured peer pressure and fought low self-esteem?
Who hasn’t been angry for their losses and heartbroken at losing a loved one?
Whose life hasn’t been impacted with the scourge of an addiction?
Who hasn’t stumbled under the weight of forgiving someone?
Or, harder yet, forgiving oneself?
It isn’t only Lilly who questions why life is so hard, and what IS the point, anyway?
Like Lilly, we wonder—when we set this world down—what will be behind death’s door?
Lilly discovers what lies far beyond that door.  And now, you just may too."

We have heard the stories of those on their death bed, crossing over the 'the other side',or 'going toward the light'. Whether that is something you take stock in, or not, this book is a great story of Lilly who does cross over for a time. She sees what heaven is like, sees her friends and family that have gone before her. She sees herself in the hospital bed, her mother and friend Luke praying for her to be healed. Feeling almost like she isn't fully ready to be in heaven, yet not really wanting to go back. 

I am glad I read past the scene with the Ouija board, as typically things like that I tend to put the book down as I am not really into ghosts and that sort of thing. I was impressed with the rest of the book though and glad I kept reading. It was a deep, emotional story. Giving thought to the after life and what you may or may not believe about it. 

I was thrilled to see that Victoria Fielding has 6 children like me! And she works with troubled teens. A very gifted lady!

I received a copy of this book from Media Guests in exchange for an honest review.
