New Orleans, 1920s. Raziela Nolan is in the throes of a magnificent
love affair when she dies in a tragic accident. In an instant, she
leaves behind her one true love and her dream of becoming a doctor
-- but somehow, she still remains. Immediately after her death,
Razi chooses to stay between -- a realm that exists after
life and before whatever lies beyond it.
From this remarkable vantage point, Razi narrates the stories of
her lost love, Andrew, and the relationship of Amy and Scott, a
couple whose house she haunts almost seventy-five years later.
The Mercy of Thin Air entwines these two fateful and
redemptive love stories that echo across three generations. From
ambitious, forward-thinking Razi, who illegally slips birth control
guides into library books; to hip Web designer Amy, who begins to
fall off the edge of grief; to Eugenia, caught between since the
Civil War, the characters in this wondrous novel sing with life.
Evoking the power of love, memory, and time, The Mercy of Thin
Air culminates in a startling finish that will leave readers
