Bell Weather by Dennis  Mahoney
"N.B.: Dennis is a pal since small times and he sent me an ARC because I was pestering him about when do I get to read this.

So now I’ve read it and I’m not even sure where to start in describing it. Sort of a super-natural AU-Revolutionary War myst..." Read more of this review »

“They're ghosts, surely, and Rabbit absolutely believes in them. There are things in the world, strange machinations of physics and chemistry,queer intersections of biology and theology, that Rabbit hasn't the slightest interest in assuming he'll ever understand or be able to solve. They're simply there to be believed in, and Rabbit is a born believer. He wants to believe. He has always thought of life as pregnant with possibility-- a freak twister or wardrobe the only thing separating him from another world-- so ghosts, spirits, aliens and supreme beings coexist within Rabbit with ease. There's a kind of beauty in accepting the possibility, if not the plausibility, of everything imaginable.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody

“The point is that it might open a part of you that's always been closed. The point is you might make yourself heard. You might find you have a beautiful and terrible - you have a power... We make music to - to find each other in the dark. And I have to believe the point is that we don't - we don't ever stop calling out.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody

“Maybe that's what he reminds her of: they are both full of dark corners, odd places, possibly ghosts.”
Kate Racculia, Bellweather Rhapsody
