Annotation

The story of a sinner who dies and then experiences a number of different spirit realms in his search for salvation. His first experience is mildly dystopian and quite dark and cold. He next experiences what he calls the Land of Dawn because the light is like that, which is mildly eutopian, and where he reunites with his father and the woman he loved but mistreated in life. He then visits Hell, after which he works on Earth to help sinners there, is then advanced to the Morning Land, and finally to the Land of Bright Day.
