Shannon Kirk’s award winning debut novel, Method 15/33, blew me away…so when I saw The Extraordinary Journey of Vivienne Marshall was available on Netgalley, I snagged it. Thank you Shannon Kirk and Reputation Books.
Such a gorgeous cover and I do hope I am walking on clouds when it’s over.

Be careful…when you are texting. Your inattention could be the death of you.
Vivienne lay hovering on the brink of death, one foot in the land of the living and one foot with the dead.
Noah, her dead, dream husband explains it to her. The scene made me think of a Supernatural episode, where Castielle says our Heaven is of our own making.
Is there a Heaven? Does our life pass before our eyes?
What would it look like? Who would you want there with you?
What secrets would be brought to light after your death?
And if there is a Heaven…what about Hell?
The lovely pics sprinkled throughout are a nice touch and I love it.
I am sitting in one of my favorite reading places, my patio and watering the lawn, even as the black clouds roll in, the thunder rumbling, and I am lost in Vivienne’s world, unable to quit reading.
Shannon’s descriptive words draw me into this novel from the opening pages, her poetic words bring to life fantasy worlds full of vibrant colors, beauty and love, but the flowery prose becomes onerous for me, having me starting, stopping and rereading, but that is me. I think there are many readers who will LOVE it and get lost in the story too.
This Heavenly love story is tragic, yet hopeful and very thought provoking.
I voluntarily reviewed a free ARC copy of The Extraordinary Journey of Vivienne Marshall from Shannon Kirk.
