Have you ever wondered what life might be like in Heaven, how people live, what they do? Have you ever thought about the actual process of entering Heaven or what fate awaits those not allowed in? Read a breathtaking and powerful story about Heaven in Mason's Link.

Follow George as he tests the Link, then, as he struggles with a love triangle involving his deceased first wife, Katherine, and his current wife, Dana, as they all migrate to Heaven. Read how George faces an unexpected fate and his transgressions following his own death when he is tested for worthiness to enter Heaven.
