A Fantasy Thriller for fans who enjoy reading books by James Patterson, Sue Monk Kidd, Frank Peretti and Alice Sebold.

“I know this is fiction but it is wonderful. The love of animals caused her to be in the road. The love for her dog kept him safe. Through the story her husband,s love reaches for her. In the end God handles all.”

“Bark Once for Yes. The Deer Effect by Susan Wingate is entertaining with an unusual take on death and the afterlife.”

“Excellent book. I was very intrigued. Excellent book. I was very intrigued, and was swept up in the journey. Haunting.”

“I loved this book. The writing is excellent and the story is heart warming. It is a story of love and the way we suffer through our humanity. I will be buying all her other books.”

Once in a while a story comes along that resonates with the very essence of what we call “humanity,” and speaks to readers of every age. The Deer Effect is that story – a phenomenal #1 Amazon bestseller lauded for its artistic touch, its tender tapping at emotion, and its mesmerizing ability to speak to the hearts of readers around the world.

“ONE BRITTLE LEAF FOUND ALONG our usual path proved the days had gone wintry. Papery thin as onion skin–blanched from frosty temperatures and yellowing like the pages of an old Bible, the leaf’s long slender shafts, crooked and dry, painted my world. The blue sky dragged me out that Sunday in December—December 5, 2010, if you must know—when the temperature rose to only forty-two Fahrenheit. What was I thinking?

Hold on. Wait a second. Let me back up just a tad. For your information, I’m dead. Although I speak of myself, make no mistakes. I died this day…”

So the story begins about Hannah Demsey who is found dead near the body of a fawn on the side of the road. Rod, Hannah’s husband, sets out on a journey to find the killer. With his faith waning, all truths change when Rod comes face-to-face with the only person who can tell him how his wife really died.

THE DEER EFFECT is a story of loss, redemption and forgiveness.

From the author of DROWNING–winner of the 2011 Forward National Literature Award for Drama and #1 Amazon bestseller.

A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis

Devin Brown

C. S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of our time. The Chronicles of Narnia has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide and all Lewis’s works are estimated to sell 6 million copies annually.

Drawing on Lewis’s autobiographical works, books by those who knew him personally, and his apologetic and fictional writing, this book tells the inspiring story of Lewis’s journey from cynical atheist to joyous Christian and challenges readers to follow their own calling. The book allows Lewis to tell his own life story in a uniquely powerful manner while shedding light on his best-known works.
