From Our Editors

Katharine is a dutiful, middle-aged mother of two who dies from sudden heart failure. Thisby is a rich and thin young woman with a dangerous appetite for drugs and men who also experiences an untimely death. Somewhere between this world and the next, Katharine`s soul enters Thisby`s dead body, and a story of reincarnation, regret and second chances begins. This Body, A Novel of Reincarnation is an entertaining debut from Laurel Doud about the roles we play, told with humour, grace and conviction. 

Editorial Reviews

"A compassionate first nove....This Body approaches the uncertainties of life from an angle skewed just enough to give us a glimpse into something we hadn't seen before".
