Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
This fantasy book was powerfully inspired by a real life emotional event. That sense of emotion and grief interspersed with joy and acceptance is a continual undertone in the book. The characters are realistic and their journey through the other worlds beyond are poignant and touching. The author devotes a huge amount of thought, and description to careful world. building. The after life “in between” worlds that encompass the mortal world, along with thought, imagination emotion and impressions of the sometimes mortal passer-bys are vivid and insightful.
The premise of this book is intriguing to me. A mother, Charley has watched her daughter who was once a healthy child wither in a hospital bed; a shell of the person she had once been. As time goes by she wrestles with the guilt of her avoidance and emotional turmoil surrounding the daughter that she lost, but whose body remains as a painful anchor to that loss.
Charley finds herself at what seems to be the unexpected end of her own mortal life when she suffers a heart attack. She is able to chronicle her journey as she leaves the living world and encounters an entire plane of existence beyond what she expected. Charlie is reunited with her lost daughter and is faced with a new reckoning with the emotions she was not comfortable addressing. Her reunion sparks a series of adventures that are extremely imaginative and intriguing.
I particularity enjoyed the other worldly concepts and the ideas about the spirits role in and out of mortality.
