Publisher's Summary

In 1920s New Orleans, Raziela Nolan's magnificent love affair is interrupted by her untimely and tragic death. Immediately after, she chooses to stay between a realm that exists after life and before whatever lies beyond it. From this remarkable vantage point, Razi narrates the story of her lost love as well as of the relationship of Amy and Scott, a young couple whose house she haunts seventy years later. It is their own troubled story that finally compels Razi to slowly unravel the mystery of what happened to her first and only passion, Andrew, and to confront a long-hidden secret. The Mercy of Thin Air entwines two heartbreaking and redemptive love stories that echo across three generations and culminates in a finish that will leave readers breathless. It is a poignant and brilliant first novel that beautifully captures the nature of love and shows how it transcends all barriers, even death.

Critic Reviews

"Luminous, wise, tender, passionate, and compassionate, this book is special. Razi is a rare character, and her story opens like the petals of a flower. She makes me understand, all over again, the redemptive power of love. One to treasure." (Posie Graeme-Evans)

Thin Story

I didn't know this was abridged until I got to the end and it was announced; somehow I missed that in the book description -- still can't find it stated anywhere. This book didn't quite hold my interest throughout. It's sort of precious and bland and I kept on with it but often wished I hadn't started.

Why is this abridged?

The book is one of my favourite and I was so disappointed when I realised that the audiobook is not the full novel - why?
