A simply told, compassionate tale, about the journey of one woman experiencing bereavement. Susie is 55 years old, her husband died six months previously, leaving her with a heartbreaking gaping hole filled with memories. With the help of friends and the mysterious appearance of white feathers, Susie starts to rediscover herself and the joys that life can bring. Told in the first person, there is almost a diary like feel to the writing, a realistic honesty and feeling of sincerity rises from the pages. Sam Hayward wrote ‘Black to White’, a work of fiction, after her husband’s death, and in the introduction reveals that she started to discover white feathers around their house after his funeral. The ideas of spiritual guidance and that death is not the end, are explored in this tender and gentle novel. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Black to White by Sam Hayward

When white feathers start to appear around the house, she feels strangely comforted and begins to rebuild her life with a renewed sense of spirituality and a deeper understanding into the mysteries of life and love. Her journey, from the depths of despair back to happiness, brings her much more than she could have hoped for.
