Under The Whispering Door: Delightful And Uplifting Story About Discovering The Joys of Life
“It’s never enough, is it? Time. We always think we have so much of it, but when it really counts, we don’t have enough at all.”
Welcome to Charon's Crossing. The tea is hot, the scones are fresh, and the dead are just passing through.
When a reaper comes to collect Wallace from his own funeral, Wallace begins to suspect he might be dead. And when Hugo, the owner of a peculiar tea shop, promises to help him cross over, Wallace decides he’s definitely dead. But even in death he’s not ready to abandon the life he barely lived, so when Wallace is given one week to cross over, he sets about living a lifetime in seven days.
A delightful queer love story from TJ Klune, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller 'The House in the Cerulean Sea'. Hilarious, haunting, and kind, 'Under the Whispering Door' is an uplifting story about a life spent at the office and a death spent building a home.
An Amazon Best Book of September 2021: When the frankly awful Wallace dies unexpectedly, he comes to the attention of Hugo, a teashop owner who ferries the dead to the other side of life. Wallace is a difficult case, but gentle Hugo gives Wallace a chance to come to grips with his predicament, opening up his eyes to love, beauty, and the absurdities that make every moment special. This heartfelt story about a man who discovers the joys of living after he is dead is one that you’ll hand to a good friend with a smile and a hug.- Adrian Liang, Amazon Editor (this text refers to the hardcover edition)
