Chicago wife, mother and finance executive, Claire Cummings arrives at work one morning to discover her friend Julia has embezzled millions and vanished. Blindsided and devastated by the betrayal, she's sent home pending further investigation. Claire's bizarre death the following day sends everyone reeling, guessing and looking for her in all the wrong places. In no time she's addicted to an enchanting menagerie of tricks and techniques for getting the living's attention, but most people are harder to reach than she'd ever dreamed and even harder to set free. She was still a mother, a wife, a daughter and a friend... she'd move heaven and earth to keep it that way. Sheri Meshal's Swallowtail is a haunting story about life, love, loss and just how far we'll go to control it all. This debut from a thought-provoking new voice in fiction begs the question... what would you do if all the rules changed, and you were suddenly bestowed powers beyond your greatest imagination?

Meshal skillfully blends past lives, celestial lives and earthly lives in ways that never feel forced, and she doesn’t rush her characters into self-discovery but seamlessly leads them there.
