Full Product Description

‘To Heaven and Back’ is the true story of an orthopaedic surgeon who was trapped in her kayak under a raging waterfall and drowned – read her transcendent journey when she went to heaven and back.

Are you skeptical of people who claim to have a near-death experience and claim to have visited heaven? So was Doctor Mary C. Neal. But when her heart stopped after a kayaking accident in Mexico her skepticism was washed away for good. Her body died, but her soul lived as she saw heavens wonders, talked to angels and experienced heaven for herself.

This is Mary’s breathe-taking autobiography. Her story is unlike any other you’ll discover as her life was completely transformed by this heavenly experience. She found fresh purpose for her life, discovered God and became closer to Jesus. ‘To Heaven And Back’ is a faith-enhancing, life-enriching and heaven-affirming read. Travel with Mary as she experienced death, then eternal life and the fullness of earthly life once again.



A kayak accident during a South American adventure takes one woman to heaven — where she experienced God’s peace, joy, and angels — and back to life again.

In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother Dr. Mary Neal drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died.

To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again. Detailing her feelings and surroundings in heaven, her communication with angels, and her deep sense of sadness when she realized it wasn’t her time, Mary shares the captivating experience of her modern-day miracle.

Mary’s life has been forever changed by her newfound understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of God, her closer relationship with Jesus, and her personal spiritual journey suddenly enhanced by a first-hand experience in heaven. To Heaven and Back will reacquaint you with the hope, wonder, and promise of heaven, while enriching you own faith and walk with God.
