|The pretty cover of an English edition of the American Gates Ajar|
The book is looking to be similar to some popular devotional writing of the nineteenth century I have read like The Gates Ajar. In that book, a woman seeks comfort from an angelic aunt who explains why the woman's brother had to die in the Civil War and how wonderful heaven is. I actually could not get through that book, but I will get through The Shack. Maybe Young will make heaven interesting.
The Shack is the third book on my reading list that is set in the Pacific Northwest. I wonder why.
