Book Review - The Color of Heaven
As the awful saying goes, all good things must come to an end. And so it was for this couple, as one tragedy after another struck, and it was all they could do to keep their family afloat. As Sophie narrates on, secrets are revealed, concealed truths are unraveled, and epiphanies are realized; Sophie seeks to uncover her true identity and answers to unresolved issues, all through the mist of pain and heartbreak that surrounds her.
The Color of Heaven is a painful, heartbreaking, joyful, and satisfactory read all at once, a book that stays with you way long after you're done with it. It keeps you up almost all night, invades your thoughts when you wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, when you wake up in the morning, and all through the day as you go about your duties. It's that kind of book that your mind keeps going back to, reliving the words you read, reliving the emotions of the characters, their pain, their love, their loss. I was quite touched by this novel.
There were a few areas within the book that dragged on for a bit. There was a bit of time (and words) wasted on some chapters, unnecessary parts that didn't have to be in the book, or didn't have to take so long to narrate, however, there is indeed a lot to learn from this book.
One major thing I took from it that I'll likely not forget anytime soon, is that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel. There's always a bigger plan in spite of the pain or heartbreak that we may be experiencing at the moment. We might not see it right away. Maybe not for six months, or a year. Or two. But it will come eventually. And it will be a bright light, one that will illuminate your whole being, bury the darkness surrounding you, and dull your pain an inch. Not to sound like a Hallmark card, but you'll get the true meaning of those words when you get to read the book for yourself.
A very, very good read. I recommend it to every book-a-holic who likes a good, cozy read.
