Book Review: A Boy back from HEAVEN


About the book:
Standing above his hospital bed, Celeste and Billy Goodwin watched in horror as their young son Matthew’s eyes rolled back in his head and he became unresponsive for several harrowing minutes. Doctors called the episode a medical anomaly, but what really happened can only be described as a miracle. Discover the truth about heaven through a child’s eyes as you read Matthew’s account of his walk with angels and his shocking revelation months later about the angels’ identities.

She has also been featured in varying print media.

A Boy Back From Heaven is a detailed story about the struggle of her oldest son (Mathew) having numerous health problems, hospitalizations, surgeries etc., that led to him having a near death experience. This book described the Mothers feelings and experiences as her son went through all this. He was very sick and went through grueling procedures, & operations.  It tells how he was changed after his experience and had a great love for the Bible and Jesus. 

A Boy Back From Heaven shared a nice message about a mother’s faith.  I was a little surprised and disappointed in the book though, because the title of the book led me to believe that the focus of the story was going to be about the near death experience, but there were only a couple of sentences about it.  I felt let down because that is the whole reason I read the book.  Although this book has a nice message, if you are interested in reading about near death experiences, I would not recommend this book for that purpose. 

I received a free e-edition of this book for review purposes.  All opinions are my own.
