Transit of Angels

Transit of Angels has been twelve long and eventful years in the making. Like a fine wine, it has matured and gained depth and character during that time.

A novel about love, death, grief and how to keep on living despite the devastation, it will make you cry, smile, gasp, ask unanswerable questions, travel to mysterious realms and, ultimately, explore ways in which hope can emerge even from the depths of darkness.

The blurb gives you a glimpse:

Is there life after death?
Angelica is thirty-four when her beloved husband, Bill, is killed in a motorbike accident.
She knows Bill is dead. Yet she yearns to be reunited with him.
In desperation, she begs him for a sign.
What happens next makes her leave the city and move to a quaint mudbrick cottage in a remote river valley where even the impossible feels sane.

As she delves further into mysterious realms she finds that not all is as it seems, and that grief – and life – have a way of carrying you forward, whether you like it or not.




“Transit of Angels is a beautifully written book which tackles what for many is a very difficult topic, without getting schmaltzy. Whether you believe that death is final, or that there is a heaven, or in reincarnation, or in life after death, providing you can suspend judgement on views that might not entirely accord with your own then you will both enjoy this book, and gain a great deal from it.I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written, thoughtful story, as well as anyone seeking to deal with their grief after the death of a loved one.”


“This novel was exquisite in every way, the language and imagery drew me in and led me along on a beautiful journey, where the landscape and settings were as clear as if I were there myself. Desney King’s writing is like poetry and conveys so much depth.”


“I’m breathless! I have to say first and foremost – Transit of Angels is the best book, by far, that I’ve read this year! Outstanding, exquisite – mere words are not enough…”
