Book Review: Added Upon is an inspirational and heartwarming story

Hi everyone. I know it's been a while, but I am signed up for a class this fall that requires me to do a lot of reading. I got done with one of the books, and I loved it so much I'm going to review it here and now. That book is Added Upon.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Added Upon is a story that takes place during the three phases of a person's life: Pre-existence, mortality, and life after death. Homan and Delsa are caught up in the events that led to the casting out of Lucifer and his followers from Heaven, and are later given the opportunity to come to Earth. Having forgotten all they must follow the events of their lives that will help them return to the presence of their Heavenly Father. 
Although the characters of this book are fiction Nephi Anderson does an incredible job at writing out things that have happened, and showing an interpretation of what the world could be like in the future. When I was reading this the story filled my heart with hope and refueled the fire in me to do my family history and genealogy. I loved how Anderson suggested that even though things will be different in the future with the Savior ruling in Zion people will still be able to create in the arts, including writing. Even if you don't agree with some of the beliefs of the author you will love the story for its imagery and the feeling of hope.
The word hell is used once, but only in its proper form. Some people are said to have been drinking, but are not seen.
What is sealed on Earth will be sealed in Heaven. Death will not be the end of us. With faith in Jesus Christ anything is possible.
