It is about what happens to people after they die. In this story the good folks, or at least those not really bad, stop at The Waystation, on their way to heaven.
Some stay for a while. Some move on quick.
Bad guys have to drive the good folks to the gates. Makes for an interesting situation.
Some really neat characters. For the most part I agreed that they got what they deserved.
About the Book:
Welcome to the Waystation, a place where time has no meaning. Consider this your first stop after exiting your life. Everyone passes through here on their way to one place or the other (if you know what I mean).
People die every day. They choose a life of crime, love the wrong person, see things they shouldn’t, or maybe they simply grow old. There’s no escaping it. Death comes to us all eventually, so there’s no point in running. But be encouraged; death is not the end.
Behind every death there’s a story of life, love, and sometimes tragedy. I’d like you to meet Cara, Rachel, Tony, Marco, Sarah, Samuel, Loreli and Wren…this is their story. Come on in and I’ll tell you all about them. Sit down and have a piece of pecan pie and a cup of coffee, or maybe a glass of sweet tea. We’ve got sandwiches if you’re hungry. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, just ignore that nasty smelling mist you see creeping along the ground. And don’t worry about the screams, they’re not here for you.
In a cross between hard crime fiction and a spiritual parable, The Waystation takes you on an odyssey from the darkness of this world, to the serenity of the afterlife. It carries you from the ugliness of the drug business, racism, abuse, and murder, to the joy that comes when all that ceases to matter anymore. Existing as a stopping point on the journey between life and death, The Waystation is a place to rest and prepare for your real life to begin.
About the Author:
Laurie Jameson never had any intention of becoming a writer. She stumbled on it quite by accident after having a rather intense dream and telling her husband it would make a great book. He talked her into writing it by presenting her with a new laptop and telling her to get on with it. Five years, lots of tears, many glasses of wine, way too many toffee peanuts and too many chicken enchiladas later, success.
I received a free book to review.
