A teen/young adult novel set in Toronto and Muskoka, this is a story about overcoming a most horrific tragedy, of settling the debate between free will and destiny, and about the search for forgiveness and redemption.
The soul shepherd Michael, with young man's eyes the color of Crab Nebula, guides the dead to cross the threshold. For over a century, he has discharged this duty with blind obedience. Until he met thirteen-year old Noah. Struck by Noah's horrific fate, Michael makes a choice that sets him on a collision course with the very nature of a soul shepherd. Worse, it has awakened demons from his own past, and has forced him to confront a bitter irony - as a soul shepherd he is forbidden to cross the threshold.
