Review: The Color of a Silver Lining

        This is the review of an inspirational novel by author Julianne MacLean.

        Although this novel captured my attention right away, I almost did not finish reading it. However, the intriguing story line and vivid imagery had captured my imagination, so I kept returning to it. I felt as if I became part of the story. The dialog is interesting but easy to digest. I was bothered somewhat by the introduction of a psychic character, but that soon passed.

        The story follows two families who had experienced tragedy in the loss of a child. One of the children survived to tell about her experience in heaven. This child used her artistic talents to draw pictures of what heaven is like. The other family found peace in the experiences of the little girl.

        This novel is so full of emotion, that I found it hard to put down, and I'm now glad I finished the story. As a result, I have been inspired to read more works by this author. I give this story 5* and recommend it to fans of inspirational fiction.
