A BLIND GIRL'S TERRIFYING "GIFT" ALLOWS HER TO REGAIN HER EYESIGHT--BUT ONLY AS SHE FERRIES THE RECENTLY DECEASED INTO THE AFTERLIFE.

Loreena Picket thinks she knows herself. A blind young woman who lives with her uncle, a reverend at a small-town church, she's a dutiful niece and talented pianist for the congregation.

But they're both hiding a terrible secret. Loreena can kill people with the touch of her hand.

While her uncle sees her as an angel of mercy, helping usher the terminally ill members of his flock into the afterlife, Loreena has her doubts.

Torn between doing her uncle's bidding and the allure of the fleeting moments when her eyesight returns on the journey to the other side, Loreena cooperates with her uncle until her troubled older brother returns to town. When she reveals her power by saving him from a local drug dealer, she is drawn into a sinister and dangerous world that will test the true nature of her talent and force her to consider how far she is willing to go to survive.

An exciting debut that crosses fantasy and literary fiction, Loreena's Gift is a thought-provoking meditation on life and death and what ultimately lies beyond this world.

Oh. My. Goodness.

If you aren’t familiar with my reviews (and I haven’t mentioned this in a long while) I don’t read what the book is about before agreeing to read and review. I judge a book by it’s cover. I check the genre. If the two spark my interest – I’m in. I love nothing more than getting surprised by a great book!

This was a quick read – I did not want to put it down. It had a hold on me. Its one of those topics that make you think and it left me turning the page. I don’t typically want to read a book more than once, but this is one I can see coming back to read again!
