“Anita’s Heaven” is not your typical book. First, it is a beautiful story about athat is so strong that it even transcends death. There are actually two authors to this true story, Norman , and his late wife Anita. Norman was completely devastated when Anita passed away from cancer in 1990 and was completely shocked in 1993 when he started receiving messages from her from the other side. Norman, a self-professed, lifetime atheist at the time, finally started believing that this was his wife trying to communicate with him. They were able to communicate best through automatic writing, mostly on the computer as the best method to communicate. This book cleverly combines over 3,000 messages from Anita and heartwarming stories of Norman and Anita’s life together. Their wonderful sense of humor and dedication to each other will make you them by the end of the book.
In chapter 55, the author beautifully sums up the reason for “Anita’s Heaven.” “This book is about our commitment to love forever and to show grievers that they can love and be happy, homosexuals that there is salvation for them, women that their fight for equality is being fought in heaven and all of us can reach out to and find our lost loves, can believe in God and heaven if we don’t now, with or without clerical help. Anita’s letters talk about the afterlife open to all whether we pray or not, believe now or never did.” Anita’s letters are full of information and hope about where we go when we pass away. She describes God’s love as kind and gentle, not wrathful and vindictive. She also describes life in nine other universes as well as our own and gives information about why we all exist. During this time, Norman begins to realize and accept that there really is a God and that life does indeed make sense.
I found this to be an excellent book and a validation that the fundamental view of judgment and punishment after death does not exist. You walk away with a sense of awe about our universe and about who we really are when we are not here. I highly recommend “Anita’s Heaven” to people who enjoy love stories and are interested in life after death.
