When Nanna says that she’s been talking with Grandpa, her granddaughter responds, “But you said Grandpa is in heaven...Is heaven very far?” Passing through the meadow gate in search of the answer, they find heavenly reminders at every turn--and a heavenly relationship in each other. Told through the eyes of the young girl, with wisdom inherited from Nanna. Paintings by Alfred Currier.
