Just over 150 years ago, in Berlin, New York, twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis suddenly fell into an unconscious state from which neither family nor physician could arouse her. When she finally regained consciousness, she described with almost supernatural perception how angels had escorted her spirit to heaven and hell.
Her vision made her the talk of her community and a legend for generations to come.
Nine Days in Heaven brings the story of Marietta Davis to a new generation of readers. The nineteenth-century language of the original has been updated for readability, but the detailed portrayal of her vision remains intact. (Publisher’s description)
