In The Day I Packed for Heaven the main character Maria, is sick with Hodgkin lymphoma. She is not ready to accept her fate and didn't believe she was sick. She fights against it. She decides she is not going to fall for it and becomes angry. As time progressed in her illness, she becomes angrier and outwardly shows it. Her mother comments on her having changed. Her happy attitude vanished and was replaced by darkness and despair.
As time moves forward Maria’s hope ebbs away and is replaced by fear. Her fear took her peace away as well. She was lost in a world of sadness and shattered dreams. The life she drew for herself in her mind had faded from view and all she was left with was a dark hole of emptiness and doom.
The book The Day I Packed for Heaven is the journey of Maria, a sad desperately ill woman struggling with the reality of a deadly illness. Will she survive?
I don’t know about you, but the word “cancer” is frightening to many. Author Maria Pelisek wrote this entire story in first person. It kept it closer to the heart for the reader. It allows one to bond with the character. I felt as if I was alongside of Maria as she walked through her weathered journey. I felt her despair, fear and loss of hope. She fought a desperate fight against herself and her past.
She needed to heal in so many ways and the reader is allowed to feel her emotions as they surface raw like open wounds. I started reading the plight of Maria and I could not put it down until I was done. I read the entire book in a few hours.
I found myself crying in places for her sadness and pain. There was one scene she underwent an operation and her sheer screaming torture made me whence and drew a clear picture of the arduous experience.
Later on through the story, I found myself smiling and laughing as she began to grow and find her way through the darkness of her world.
The writer is clearly in touch with her character who is the same Maria from the book. She has a way of describing her ordeal that places the reader directly in her own shoes. I give this book a BIG 5 stars. For such a seriously sad subject I find her approach to writing it very fresh and in many areas uplifting. I think it is wonderful that a subject such as this one could be put in such a light. I found it a great balance of darkness and light. I did enjoy it, and find the writer has great talent.
Read this book. I highly recommend it! BRAVO!

This book is not only of tremendous value to anyone facing decisions as regards cancer treatment, but of value to everyone struggling with health challenges looking for solutions. It proves conclusively that dealing root cause issues at emotional and spiritual levels will have a profound effect on our physical body. It is the route to holistic health. The book is best experienced by taking time to mull over some of the very profound insights of the author. Although it is not written in her native language the message is not lost. It is an extremely inspiring story, which should be widely shared.
