Wish You Were Here: A Rock Fantasy by Joyce S. Isaacson is dedicated to the UK-based rock band, Badfinger. A percentage of the sale will be donated to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Yes, there's a suicide that opens this book but it's not all doom and gloom! The book crosses the love between band mates and is about rock group member Tomas Alvers and his search for his previously deceased close friend and lead singer, Paul Lamb.
The main character, Tomas, haunted by depression by the too-soon loss of a member of his Str8Up band leaves the earth rather abruptly and finds himself at the Pearly Gates. There we get to meet one of the assortment of angels named Gabriel as he guides Tomas through the many layers of heaven to meet a vast repertoire of famous faces who teach him about the rules, self-love and self-discovery. He travels the many levels of Heaven encountering .the overtly fictionalized spirits of real-world artists, a veritable feast of rock royalty, politicians, performers, and thinkers that he couldn't have when he was alive, to explore questions about legacy, but not always to answer them.
This is a novel about after-death adventure, rules, and posthumous love... All in all, this is a unique, original, and deftly written crafted metaphysical novel that showcases the author's genuine flair for character, and narrative-driven entertainment, that is simply riveting from first page to last.
Enjoy the read!
