I felt very honored when I received the magnificent volume, "Scripted in Heaven" to review. I found that once taking the book into my hands, I became so engrossed in the book that I couldn't put it down.
This well-researched story about a doctor, his "God" and his family, carries the reader along and one is reluctant to put the book down even for a moment. The author fully details the family's interaction with "Padre Pio da Pietrelcina" the patron saint of healing and her own husband's ordeal with cancer.
And I especially was impressed with all the photographs of the various Saints and the Roman Catholic memorials included in the story.
Upon reading this story, I now feel that I understand and better appreciate "Saint Pio" and his love for mankind. I shall treasure this volume always.
Would I recommend this book to others? Absolutely, it makes one a "believer."
