Cappuccino Heaven by Michelle Wright

Blurb via Goodreads
Cappuccino Heaven will take you on a journey into the afterlife with Elizabeth Walker. Leaving her 38 years of life behind she enters her wider world full of expectations, meeting friends and family long gone she marvels at the fact she can still get her favourite cappuccino's. New adventures await yet she cannot forget her husband Mike and daughters Sasha and Lucy that she has been forced to leave behind.
Slowly she begins to realize that her visions of the afterlife are not what they seem, the dark lower levels becoming a source of attraction that draws her to the idea of rescuing lost tormented souls exposing her own human weakneses. A sensitive and challenging story that will leave you wondering. Maybe what we do in life does affect where we go in death.

My review.
This is one of those rare occasions where I can predict the reaction of readers to a book......  This is not an ambivalent book. 
A reader will either love it or hate it.  I don’t see a golden high way.  
The book is a story of a woman’s experience in Heaven after death.  She soon learns that she needs to let go of some human issues, that she needs to learn and that she needs to push herself from one realm to the other.  She learns that she needs to learn to accept others and – I loved this – you might find people in Heaven whom you don’t really like. 
Not the lower level people.  The level she occupies.  She needs to accept reincarnation and that she is no longer limited.  She also learns that she needs to learn tolerance.  Much of the book is dedicated to Elizabeth’s personal understanding of what happens to people who is evil incarnate.  Child molesters, murderers etc.  They might be better off than those who cannot leave behind their own belief system.  It is incredible.  It voices some ideas I have held dear for years, even though they might not be popular.  It also challenged some of my own belief systems.  One thing is clear.  Think before you do.  Hell might not be what you picture it to be, it might be far worse. 
I give this book a 5***** review.  But like I said in the beginning, you will either love it or hate it.  I hope you love it.
