Synopsis

"A box of tissues should be included in the purchase price of this book.... I finished THE COLOR OF HEAVEN in a matter of hours, but I've no doubt the read and the lessons imparted through Sophie's story will stay with me... probably forever. THE COLOR OF HEAVEN is an incredibly poignant and unbelievably gripping novel, deserving Romance Junkies' highest rating."  --FIVE BLUE RIBBONS - Chris at Romance Junkies

A deeply emotional tale about Sophie Duncan, a successful columnist whose world falls apart after her daughter’s unexpected illness and her husband’s shocking affair. When it seems nothing else could possibly go wrong, her car skids off an icy road and plunges into a frozen lake. There, in the cold dark depths of the water, a profound and extraordinary experience unlocks the surprising secrets from Sophie’s past, and teaches her what it means to truly live...and love.

Full of surprising twists and turns and a near-death experience that will leave you breathless, this story is not to be missed.

"A gripping, emotional tale you'll want to read in one sitting." - New York Times bestselling author, Julia London

"Brilliantly poignant mainstream tale." – 4 ½ starred review, Romantic Times

I tell you I haven't set to read a book in years. Not big on reading for whatever reason. But this book was awesome. I'm glad I chose it. If I could afford the other books I would definitely purchase them. Awesome writer. How she goes detail of ever event. She had me fool when talking with her month. I read this book in three days. I'm shocked at the excitement I had about reading again. Just couldn't put the book down. Again awesome book Julianne MacLean.

A Marvelous Novel
October 30th, 2014
Wow! Let me explain just how amazing this book was. I picked it up at the beginning of a flight that was just under 3 hours, planning on reading a few pages before the plane reached a certain altitude that would allow me to pull out my laptop and get some work done. Only, I got pulled so deeply into the story that I never resurfaced until the plane was taxiing on the runway after landing and the book was complete. For a slow reader like me to be able to read the entire book in a single sitting is pretty rare and the sign of a spectacular read. I was pulled into Sophie's world, followed her as she slowly uncovered the buried secrets of her parent's lives and was completely engaged with the characters, the story and the writing. A marvelous book - and I'm certainly delighted to learn there are now 3 more books in the series.
