The Opening by Ron Savarese

A story of redemption, forgiveness, and awakening to the healing power of love

 The Opening addresses the age-old question 'what happens when we die?' with a spiritual fantasy of immense charm and imagination. At once an insightful meditation on life's passages and a vision of unearthly realms, it creates its own enchanted worlds where characters connect with one another between here and the hereafter across the thinnest of lines.

"Joe St. John wanders out into a blizzard and falls through an opening that leads him to amazing, sometimes harrowing places where he encounters the major turning points in his life. Along the way, he revisits his missed opportunities, uncovers his life's core trauma, and is given mysterious geometrical symbols that hold the key to his future. As Joe's soul hovers between two worlds he will discover the truth about life and death, and be confronted with the ultimate choice: save his own life, or give it up for someone he loves."

A sparkling, hallucinatory, fast-paced read with unexpected twists of plot, imbued with a
childlike sense of wonder. You'll love floating in the book's magical dreamscape, and may find yourself wanting to read it again and again to uncover its mystical insights and layers of meaning.
