Description

In this whimsical, thought-provoking novel, author Armineh Helen Ohanian presents a fantastic vision of how life might look after death. When faithful churchgoer Martha arrives late for Sunday services, she can't figure out why her husband, children, and grandchildren won't talk to her. It isn't until the spirit of her beloved but long-dead uncle appears and tells her that she's at a funeral-her own. Martha follows her uncle to her new eternal home: Planet Heaven. Unlike various religions' conceptions of the afterworld, Planet Heaven is pretty similar to Earth. In the company of her wise uncle and a favorite childhood pet, Martha travels through Planet Heaven. Once in Paris, she sets out on the city streets to find her favorite composer, Georges Bizet. She wants to tell the composer of the famous opera "Carmen" that despite his long suffering in life, he finally made it big after he died. Full of adventure, humor, and heart, this madcap tale about living life after death features an ensemble of zany, lovable characters in the vivid and fully imagined world of Planet Heaven.show more
