As she tells her tale about exotic locales, previous lives and fascinating occupations, she reveals also that she feels great guilt for breaking the Fifth Commandment - which is to Honor thy father and thy mother - and wishing her parents were less restrictive, more cool, not so embarrassingly ethnic, and that her life was more interesting and glamorous.
Are Christina’s afterlife exploits wild and colorful dreams, or actually religious experiences bordering on miraculous encounters with none other than St. Peter at the Gates of Heaven? This is what a three-priest panel who grills her incessantly tries to determine: should her divine revelations be disclosed to the church hierarchy for further exploration, or are they just “malarkey,” fabrications by a young girl who prefers to live in some fantasy world to escape her reality. Nonetheless, through her experiences - whether real or imagined - Christina realizes what it means to live the Fifth Commandment and to be grateful for the life and parents she has had.
Eve Gaal has managed to weave a captivating adventure with humor and style, lush with religious tenets and symbolism without being heavy handed or pedantic. The short story breezes along with characters that are interesting and quite down to earth. It will leave you guessing in a joyful and enlightening way.
