Initially I thought the idea of a lawyer defending souls in heaven was fantastic. The author presented a spiritual counterpart to a legal theme that was unique and creative. Recently deceased, attorney Brek is asked to use her legal skills as a lawyer in the trial that each soul receives to determine where they will be sent after death. Her first case was to defend a man for cheating on his wife. And this is where the book failed me. I thought the author’s too literal biblical interpretation of actions that could send a soul to hell was ridiculous and slightly offensive. I couldn’t continue reading a book that advanced the proposition that all sins carry the same weight. I think the point of the story was to cherish life, but the rigid religious outlook was hardly the mechanism to impart that theme. I can’t think of anyone who would enjoy this.
