The Mercy of Thin Air: A Novel The Mercy of Thin Air: A Novel

by Ronlyn Domingue

Book Reviews

"In The Mercy of Thin Air, Raziela Nolan -- a ghost -- spins vivid portraits of the world she left, and the world she isn't allowed to join, reminding us that there is the finest of lines between present and past, between life and death, between love and regret. This is that rarest of first novels -- a truly original voice, and a truly original story." --Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Vanishing Acts and My Sister's Keeper

"Ronlyn Domingue's glimpse into the other side reveals the poignancy lurking behind our more mundane lives and loves. Flappers from a glamorous era of New Orleans high life linger and evanesce in this thoroughly modern dissection of thwarted love and the redeeming mercy of letting go. Readers, though, will find it difficult to let go of this moving debut by a remarkable talent well on her way to a distinguished career." --James Wilcox, author of Heavenly Days

"Ronlyn Domingue's debut novel is an ethereal and eternal love story with images so luminous they lift off the paper. The Mercy of Thin Air will haunt you long after the last page is turned." --Paula Wall, national bestselling author of The Rock Orchid

"Like The Lovely Bones, Ronlyn Domingue's own first novel makes the reader feel as if he's died and gone to heaven. The Mercy of Thin Air should enjoy a similarly long and happy life." --James Gordon Bennett, author of The Moon Stops Here
