    Book details

I was having one of those summers. Nothing was happening and time seemed to be dragging. What I didn't realise, was that time was in fact moving along rather quickly; I was just out of step. It's a funny thing. I had been stressing about whether or not to go to university, my parents, all the usual stuff, but I needn't have bothered. Life, or should I say, death, has a way of making those decisions for you. So, here I am. Heaven didn't want me and earth is just as scary for the dead as it is for the living. Do I know what I'm going to do with my life, sorry, my afterlife? Well, if they say life is for the living, this must be for the rest of us...

From Hamilton in Lanarkshire, Clare has a History degree from Strathclyde University and now lives in London with her husband. Having spent some time trying to find some magic in various fields, she is now concentrating on her career as a writer.Clare was drawn to writing by her life long passion for reading and inventing stories. As a child, Clare loved nothing more than curling up on a window seat in her local library and being carried away by a magical story. A fantasy fiction fanatic, she has published two books in The Staff Wielder Series as well as writing other stories of a fantastical nature.

    A very easy to read, easy to get into book. I read it within a couple of days and needed tissues before the end. A paradox of lives of those passed, a love story with a difference, death with meaning. 5 stars for a brilliant read.

    I honestly could not put the book down once I started it! A great read, definitely a book for your holidays or just for curling up on the couch with. Enjoyable right to the end!

    Once started I couldn't put this book down. Great story, really imaginative. Would recommend this for all ages,I will certainly watch for any more books by Clare Wilson.

    There's nothing so gratifying as having your opinion validated so if, like me, you often think that hell is other people in the here and now then this book won't change your life. However it might bring some welcome food for thought about what's in store after life's extinct to know that, for most of us, Heaven's on hold and you get to stick around this mortal coil (unless you're a child or a VIP) and hang with your family, or in this age of dysfunctionality, with other like-minded souls. Nothing much is said about the other place, but there are malignant souls cropping up and it's a nice idea to have exorcism as a valid alternative for banishing, even if the priest performing it gets more than he bargained with a one way ticket to the pearly gates as one of the few 'important' souls who do get to join the heavenly host.For heroine Portia there's no such luck, but luckily for her some of the good guy stick-around souls track her down and help her acclimatise to the afterlife and make new friends who show her the ropes to manifesting and how to travel to places she holds dear. There's even a soulmate for her in the irritatingly attractive shape of David. This gets 4 stars from me only because 5 means it's one of the best books I've ever read (whether or not it has flaws) and, whilst there's much to admire with the great writing and imaginative conceptualising it stays at 4 because I didn't feel the passion flowing too much, probably because Portia's diffident and drifting character traits were something of an anchor, however well expressed. I wish we could use a decimal rating system because this would definitely be worth a 4.5 rating and I'd certainly happily read other titles by this writer in the future - so I will!Really good read for paranormal fans who don't need blood and full tilt horror the whole time and also fine for a more sensitive YA readership.

    This novel is well written with some interesting characters and views on the afterlife. It progresses at a steady pace and although there aren't any major twists or turns, the story keeps a hold of your interest.

    Heaven’s Waiting Room is a uniquely interesting take on our existence after death. It is written from the perspective of a young girl named Portia who unexpectedly dies around the age of 18. Portia is destined to spend her eternity on Earth with many others who have not been invited into Heaven. This is not because they are bad people, but Heaven has become so overcrowded that there are certain qualifications a soul must possess in order to gain entry. Children, however, are automatically admitted.Most of the book deals with Portia’s acclamation to the afterlife and the challenges she faces in learning to adapt. Toward the end, we learn more about the “bureaucracy” of Heaven and the so called bureaucrats’ take on those beings assigned to the Earthly plane. Portia becomes a pivotal figure in promoting a change for the better, and the book ends on a high note.I thoroughly enjoyed this selection, and if the afterlife really is as Clare Wilson imagines, then it’s not so bad. This makes a great weekend read.

    Being a fan of the Staff Wielder novels I am pleased to say that Heaven's Waiting Room is yet another gem from the pen of Clare Wilson. I was gripped from start to finish by such a great story, fascinating concept and not to mention a strong character structure.I would highly recommend this book as a great page turner if you read at home and if your stocking up your Kindle for the summer holidays then you cant beat the value of this purchase. At a mere £1.99 its a must for the poolside or beach lounger.Having read through other reviews its clear that most other people are in agreement with me on this excellent novel. I noticed one poor review from a Herbert Lom. While I'm a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their opinion I took some time to read Herbert's reviews on other works (Including the colourful ones). It is my duty to suggest that perhaps Herbert should read books that are more suited to his level.Herbert may I recommend "The Cat Sat On The Mat" Enjoy
