Marlys in Heaven
A Novel by John S. Munday
When Marlys Ann Wohlenhaus is murdered, she goes to heaven where she meets various
people as she faces the question of forgiveness. Why would a young woman forgive
the one who murdered her? Would meeting people from the Bible like Cain and Abel
influence her choice? Does the philosophy of Aristotle or the faith of St. Paul
matter? If the other victims of the same killer forgive him, can she?
Marlys is a real person who was struck down in her home by a serial killer in 1979.
The story in this book of what happened to her on earth is factually true. The story
of her time in heaven is fiction. No one knows what happens in heaven, so the author
has imagined what Marlys experienced after her death.
