Ms. Alicia K. Pembleton is a 29-year-old social worker, who, after being crushed by the wheels of a large black truck, finds herself dead and wandering through the afterlife.
There is one slight twist in this soul's tragic turn of fate, however--Ms. Pembleton is (or perhaps more accurately, was) an atheist. She would thus prefer to deny the truth of her situation. Alas, her unbelief is challenged by a series of almost hallucinatory episodes, and by a slightly unwelcome companion.
Ms. Pembleton must now reluctantly unravel the mysteries and miseries of her past physical and current spiritual existence, while also dealing with her surviving family's future, in a quest to reunite with her sister, Sarah.
By Death's Feather deals with such weighty themes as life and death, family, hope, faith, honesty, persistence, joy, pain and suffering, and above all, forgiveness, in an almost shockingly light-hearted manner.
An enjoyable exploration of the faith and hope that lies within all of us, irrespective of doctrinal belief, it should appeal to readers of a variety of ages and backgrounds.
