Customer Review

on June 28, 2011
It is easy to add this small review to those who have already praised Naomi Gladish Smith's third novel focusing on the possibilitiies of life after death. Like The Arrivals and The Wanderers previously, The Searchers brings readers into a heavenly realm where spirits find themselves after death. Smith's descriptions of heaven or hell is closely developed upon the vivid pictures of those places found in the voluminous writings of the famous 18th century Swedish scientist[-theologian Emanuel Swedenborg. I suspect that, because of that fact, there could be some traditional evangelical Protestants who, in their unshakeable belief that they and they alone understand the Bible, might be offended by some of her descriptions but this ought not deter readers who value a good plot and an even more intriging story. I do and, like the first two books in this series, read it through in one long sitting. It is easy to quibble about this or that -- for the most part, for instance, it was easy to imagine which charcaters would "win" and which would not --but that in no way should take away from the pleasure of reading this lovingly written account.
