Review by Ryder Islington, Author of ULTIMATE JUSTICE, A Trey Fontaine Mystery

Todd Burpo is a pastor in Nebraska. In 2003, his son, Colton, then almost four years old, became really sick and ended up in surgery.

This is the story of Colton and what happened to him when he was under anesthesia for surgery. His dad wrote the book after multiple conversations with the boy about things he’d seen, the people he’d met, and what he’d done in heaven. And he told his parents what each of them were doing while he was on the operating table.  I enjoyed the way Mr. Burpo shared the experiences his family went through, and how Colton’s illness, and revelations, affected all of them.

This is a quick read, great for those looking for faith, or grieving a loss. You can find it at and other online bookstores, as well as at brick and mortar stores. A great gift for family or friends.
