About the Author
Praise For The Fetch…
"The rich descriptions, particularly of the exquisitely imagined afterlife, are exceptionally drawn, as are the sympathetic characters and the unusual premise. A challenging book with an intriguing conclusion, this will lead thoughtful readers to spirited discussions."—Booklist, starred review
"Whitcomb's writing is clear and thoughtful, and she makes elegant sense of this unusual and original plot . . . The title's genre-crossing nature will make it appealing to fans of several different categories: supernatural stories, mysteries, historical fiction, and/or romance."—The Bulletin
"This fantasy, based on Christian themes of Heaven and Resurrection, is at its heart a tender love story. The author’s romantic vision of the hereafter could be fodder for thoughtful discussion, as well as a satisfying escape for those who thrill to disembodied lovers."—School Library Journal
