Journey Under Heaven is the second part of a duology by Daria Cyr. The story of Autumn Sawyer continues as she grows as a person and grows closer to God as well. After finding her affinity with animals, Autumn becomes a veterinarian in Independence, Pennsylvania. Independence has become the home she always craved and she felt a connection with the people of the town. However, this does not mean her life was not tested anymore. Making unlikely friends and making connections has helped her stay afloat, but that is not enough. Soon, her world is shaken once again when Dr. Samuel comes into her little corner of heaven and changes everything. While not a threat, Samuel is a man who makes her question things, and before she knows it, Autumn is back to building her relationship with God and asking some very hard questions. Should she stop questioning God and let Him take her life wherever? Or was she going to fight it?
Daria Cyr is absolutely right in saying that the issues mentioned in this series are common and almost timeless. The themes of the sequel are forgiving yourself, forgiving others, and letting the past go so you can move into the future. And as expected, the author managed all of these themes skillfully to make the story entertaining and inspiring. The message of Journey Under Heaven is so simple, and the narrative reflects that. However, don’t misjudge the story based on that. It is rich with minor details; the characters are reliable and relatable, and the plot itself is more than just entertaining. Each character has a story to tell, and the author does her absolute best to give free rein to her characters. I loved every single moment of it!
