Even if she writes a one liner, she is brilliant. Months ago, I added her to my list of favorite writers.
The Deer Effect by Susan Wingate is entertaining with an unusual take on death and the afterlife. Hannah and her sweet, beloved dog, Bobby, go for a walk and while tending to a wounded fawn lying by the road, Hannah is struck by a vehicle. Hannah's husband, Rod, having just told Hannah he was leaving her is devastated when he hears of her death.After their deaths, Hannah and the fawn's spirits remain in the earthly realm and communicate with Bobby. Wingate takes readers on an interesting journey as Rod deals with his grief, his faith (or lack thereof) and his need for justice. Although the plot is that of fantasy, there are certainly strong threads of themes of forgiveness and the importance of faith in God throughout the story. The Deer Effect is a heartwarming book. The audiobook was narrated well by Felisha Caldeira, giving each character their own unique voice. I was given an audio copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
