From debut author Ronlyn Domingue comes a stunning, imaginative novel that beautifully captures the nature of love and how is transcends all barriers -- even death.

In 1920s New Orleans, smart and fearless Raziela Nolan is in the throes of a magnificent love affair when she suddenly dies in a tragic accident. Immediately after her death, 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 the relationship of Amy and Scott, a young couple whose home she haunts seventy years later. Their trials finally compel Razi to slowly unravel the mystery of what happened to her first and only love, Andrew, and to confront a long-hidden secret.

The Mercy of Thin Air entwines two tragic and redemptive love stories that echo across three generations and culminates in a startling finish that will leave readers breathless. From plucky, 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 ambitious and original debut sing with life, as well as Southern flair.

"With lucid supple prose, Ronlyn Domingue weaves a gossamer tale suspended between two worlds," lauds acclaimed author James Wilcox. The Mercy of Thin Air is a wondrous, incredibly wrought novel that evokes the transformative power of love, memory, and time.
