    Well! What just happened there then? I'll tell you what happened, ' The Color Of Heaven' grabbed hold of me, gave me a good shake, and taught me a lesson. The lesson? Don't dismiss a particular genre out of hand due to a previous poor literary experience. Normally, anything that includes the labels Romance/ Chic Lit are not for me. I know they're popular but it's just not my thing. However, this book offers so much more. The main character, Sophie, has an awful lot of sadness in her life, there' [...]

    The premise was good, and I really wanted to like it. however, it read like a laundry list of events rather than the truly touching story it could have been. It just seemed like so much opportunity was missed. The characters were surface only, even the narrator. The word choices were often very odd. There should have been so much emotion, but it was missing. I could excuse a lot of this as inexperience, except that this author is supposed to be renowned and commercially published many times over [...]

    I don't really know what to say. Miracles occur every day, I don't know if this was based on a true story or not but it was a nice book. It wasn't anything that threw you for a loop or that you would read again in my opinion but it was nice to read. The first husband was a douchebag in my opinion. How can you cheat on your wife, knock up your mistress and divorce your wife to marry your mistress after your daughter has just died. What a weak person and character if you ask me. Just had to rant a [...]

    First off, this is a review of the audio version of this book. Overall this was a decent albeit slightly overwrought story of a young woman on the brink of great change. In a short period of time, Sophie Duncan goes from wife and mother to divorced grieving mother. Reeling from the loss of her daughter and the betrayal of her husband, she finds herself drowning in grief and bitterness. This is an emotional story from start to finish. The narrator, Jennifer O'Donnell while quite talented, draws t [...]

    This book is an extraordinary work of art. You will need a box of tissues for sure. Amazing character development and a great storyline. This is the first book I have read by this author and after finishing it, I bought the next 2 in the series. The writing is exquisite and you will be drawn into it from page one. You will keep turning the pages till the end. Amazing book, I highly recommend this one. Do not miss out!I can't wait to start the next one.

    The Color of Heaven is an amazing contemporary fiction novel. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so was surprised when I was so quickly drawn into Sophie’s story and did finish reading it in one sitting. I loved each of the characters; they were richly developed and so carefully woven into the story. And what a story – certainly loaded with joy and sadness, regret and forgiveness, and loss and new beginnings. But most of all, it was a love story. All different kinds of love: between a husband a [...]

    O livro não é o que parece, não se trata de um simples romance trágico, muito longe disto! É uma história envolvente e fascinante sobre uma experiência quase-morte. As primeiras páginas são extremamente dolorosas em que a filha da Sophie, a personagem principal do livro, morre com leucemia aos 5 anos de idade, e depois a Sophie perde o marido que a troca por outra mulher. Desde que a Sophie tem um acidente de viação e passa para outro lado, não se consegue parar de ler. Ela vê a sua [...]

    Beautifully written, full of ups and downs. Grab your tissues and a few hours to yourself since you will probably read this in one sitting.

    The author of this book is E.V. Mitchell, which is a pseudonym for author Julianne MacLean.This is one of the best books that I have read lately. I was actually reading Taken by the Cowboy by Julianne MacLean and when I finished there was an excerpt of this book. I think about the first 10 chapters. After I read those I was instantly hooked. I went online to Ms. MacLean's website to see where I can purchase t he book.Well, low and behold it was .99c at All Romance Books and may be the same price [...]

    Definitely a four hankie read, but only three stars. I liked the story but there was a lack of real depth to the characters, IMO. But then again, I read it in a day, it kept me wanting find out what happened next.

    I enjoyed this book.

    The Color of HeavenWow!! This is a fast paced, surprise-around-every-corner kind of book. I read it in one sitting, because I couldn't put it down. It's full of once-in-a-lifetime love and heartbreaking tragedies, and life long friendships that don't come around every day. It is different - it has an out-of-body- experience in it that is riveting. To say the book is well written is an understatement. The grammar and punctuation are impeccable, which is unfortunately a dying breed in many writers [...]

    So I enjoyed the book, hands down. I, like many other reviewers, felt that the author must have experienced some of the things written about in the book to be able to write about them so honestly. I will confess to being utterly confused about 3/4 of the way through the book (if you read it you'll understand). Everything was cleared up by the end of the book but I felt there was probably a less confusing way of explaining what was happening. I would read additional books by this author - good ch [...]

    Beautiful. Heartfelt. Emotional. Honest. I downloaded The Color of Heaven because it was a free download. I read The Color of Heaven because it spoke to something within. I finished The a Color of Heaven because it was a touching story of love, loss and forgiveness that I couldn't put down.

    The writing style turned me off and made the story unbelievable. Too much summarizing and not enough storytelling. If I wasn't reading it for a book club, I wouldn't have wasted my time reading it.

    Que surpresa!! Confesso que não esperava gostar tanto deste livro, mas adorei desde a primeira página.A história apesar de dramática é linda, fala de amizade e principlamente de amor, o qual está presente das mais variadas formas ao longo de toda a narrativa; fala sobre felicidade e a mais profunda tristeza, fala sobre remorsos, perdão e esperança. Fala sobre a vidaSenti uma grande afinidade com este livro que mexeu comigo das mais variadas formas.P.S.: Altamente recomendado! :-)

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE AUDIOBOOK FORMAT: Sophie Duncan is a successful writer and columnist, happily married to a lawyer on the fast track to becoming partner, and mother to a beautiful daughter. She had everything one could ask for in life – kind of a storybook life until her daughter Megan is diagnosed with cancer. Then slowly, Sophie’s life seems to spiral out of control during the next couple of years of battling the ups and downs of the disease and a marriage that was slowly disintegrat [...]

    Sophie teve durante alguns anos a vida que qualquer mulher desejaria para si escritora de sucesso, com um marido apaixonado e dedicado e com uma filha linda que só lhe dava alegrias, Sophie sentia-se abençoada com tamanha felicidade!! Mas a sua felicidade estava prestes a acabar. Tudo começa com a descoberta de que a filha de apenas 3 anos padece de uma doença grave, a leucemia. Sophie nem quer acreditar no que ouve a sua linda e maravilhosa filha está a morrer Ela faz tudo o que está ao s [...]

    I'm glad this story moved along quickly or I would have lost interest. Sophie, the main character, really goes through a great deal and while a bit sappy for me it is a good tale of survival. I liked the story within the story, it was a nice way of giving some background and depth to the characters, however, I could have done without Sophie's mother describing her private love life in detail to her own daughter. It was just not relative to the story. All in all, a good premise and a fast read. F [...]

    Oh dear. The three stars were for the first quarter of the book and I must say that part really had me hooked but when the story took a different turn with Sophie's mother telling her story it just lost my interest and I felt it became totally disjointed and far fetched.

    Really good, tearjerker. I read it in two days so it definitely had my attention!

    Sophie has rather a tough year. First she lose her daughter then her husband walks out on her. When she crashed her car and rolls into the ice she thinks it is all over. What transpires is very different. The beginning and middle of this book give a wonderful read. A world of well written tragedy and then hope. Of a character that you could take to and a life lived with scenarios well described to picture easily. The ending however, for me was rather too predictable, which left me wanting. After [...]

    I quite enjoyed this story I was just saying before picking it up (and without realizing what I was about to read) how much I love stories involving medical miracle situations and coma things. This was heartbreaking, and beautiful, and uplifting. It was strange how it seemed to pass through things so quickly- we never settled in to really meet the other characters in Sophie's life. Her courtship with Michael was kept short and sweet, and so was with Kirk. But Cora's story was told so vividly, I [...]

    A Cor do Céu é um livro que não tem muito que se lhe diga, lê-se e pronto, está feito, passa-se ao próximo, sem arrependimentos. O estilo de escrita da autora desmotivou-me logo de início. É uma escrita muito básica, corrida, superficial, que não explora as profundezas dos seus personagens. Para além disso, em vez de ler uma história, parece que estava a ler os sumários das aulas de escola. A única parte do livro que me chamou a atenção e de que consegui gostar foi a história so [...]

    This was a quick read and had a good flow to it. I enjoyed the story very much until the ending which I found very disappointing because it was so unbelievably happy. This was such a departure from the first 3/4ths of the story which felt real and emotional. The Color of Heaven starts out with the main character, Sophie, narrating. She seems to have a charmed life until her young daughter contracts leukemia which puts a strain on Sophie's marriage, and then Sophie gets into a bad car accident. W [...]

    This book has an amazing flow. Writing is very smooth, and the story is divided into small chapters. Besides a lot of research is being done, may be the book has some fragments of author’s personal experience, because it is too technical at few places. Happiness comes in waves, and if you are facing hardships in life, then be reminded that good times are not far away. I’m not sure if this is true in real life but it is for this book.Sophie’s happy life shatters in a whim. Just when she has [...]
