When an ad for a vacation cottage catches the eye of a man on the edge of burnout, he impulsively sets off to visit the property while his wife and daughters are away. When he arrives and is ushered through the gate, he finds something far different from the typical vacation retreat. In fact, it seems he may have found the back door to heaven. The proprietor and people from his past welcome him with food, rest, and conversation until what started out as a little escape from everyday life turns into an experience he will never forget.

This imaginative novel explores the big questions we all have about what lies beyond this earthly life. Readers hungry for a taste of heaven will find in The Gate hope, encouragement, and pure joy.

But when Michael introduces Sky to Ahbee, an elderly man, and they spend a few moments talking, Sky understands the true meaning of the ad, and the fact that entering through the gate really did put him in “God’s country.” Later, Sky also meets Ahbee’s son, Josh, and a woman named Rae.
