Part mystery, part love story, part ghost story, part history lesson: The Mercy of Thin Air by Ronlyn Domingue offers something for every reader. Narrated by the spirit of Razi, who has been in the “in between” more than 70 years, the reader is drawn into both the story of Razi herself and the young couple with which she is currently sharing a house. At its core this novel examines the choices women have been faced with for decades, as well as the unknowable question of what happens to us after we die. Domingue masterfully leads the reader through converging storylines with skill and efficiency. The combination of opaque and thought provoking subject matter in lesser hands could end up alternately confusing the reader or bogging down the text; this is not the case, in fact the reader become so engrossed in the characters’ lives that the pages fly by! Both the characters and the ideas presented in the novel will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.
