An unusual heaven as a eutopia, but there are higher heavens. The inhabitants come from a variety of planets. Those who die young become adults. Marriage can occur in heaven, and marriage partners will find each other. In this one there is a city with parks, trees, and fountains and without dust, smoke, or unpleasant noises. People work, but even physical labor is not tiring. No harsh weather but some seasonal change. A second city is inhabited by people from many planets and has architecture reflecting those planets. No poor. Those who lived selfish lives are servants as a way of overcoming their past. Female author.
