A Song of Innocence
A novel by Greg Herriges

Jesse and Nina Dillon are your typical American parents, raising a nine-year-old daughter, Christy, the best they can, and enjoying the fruits of their labor of love, until the unthinkable happens. Christy is diagnosed with leukemia and suddenly nothing is the same; everything becomes part of the terrible struggle between life and death.

Greg Herriges’s new novel, A Song of Innocence, speaks to the infinite nature of parents’ love for their children. Jesse and Nina are forced not only to battle their nine-year-old daughter’s leukemia; they struggle on a daily basis to endure, to find some meaning in the midst of helplessness, uncertainty, and agonizing sorrow.

A compelling look at the vagaries of family dynamics and the austere realities of human biology, Herriges chronicles the lonely journey of one man’s soul as he attempts to keep alive love, hope, and desire in the face of almost certain defeat on all fronts. Ultimately, the question of whether there is an afterlife becomes secondary to his daughter’s transcendent and resolute discovery that “There is no death.”
