The Color Of Heaven is a very compelling story. It's the story of Sophie who has a wonderful life with a loving husband and a delightful daughter until Meagan, her daughter, is diagnosed with cancer. After fighting the disease for several years, Meagan dies; Sophie grieves, and her husband has an affair and leaves her. Sophie is alone and bereft when she has an accident and dies for 40 minutes. During this time, she sees her Mother, who left when she was 14, and hears her mother's story. The two stories entwine and show us the power of love, forgiveness, hope, and faith. It is a thought provoking story that stays with you after the end.
