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.
Early readers have used words like beautiful, soothing and comforting – unexpected reactions to a story that begins with a sudden, tragic death.
“A heartwarming tale of love and loss, and how redemption is found in the most unusual places.”
Author of A Soft Place to Land
