Daniel Allen DuBourabout this book: The Edge of Light was my first book I had written. It was inspired by a book I had read many years prior about death and the existence of the spiritual world. The Edge of Light consists of ten individual short stories of people who experience death and enter the spiritual world. Each character is different in their own circumstance in life. None of the characters exhibits any one particular religious belief, although all are met in the spiritual world by an angel named Joan who introduces them to the spiritual world and guides them to the Edge of Light. I chose the name Joan for the angel from Joan of Arc who led the French into battle. She is recognized as a saint in the Catholic Religion.
Joan takes them by hand and brings them on a journey to a place I call the Plains. The Plains is a place of serenity with beautiful green grass and a lake. The lake contains fish of every color imaginable. When directed toward the lake, the once live person finds peace in his surroundings, and acceptance of the spiritual world which he/she is now part of.
During this time, a parade of children holding candles sing in chores parading from beyond the lake. This is where in the book some of the religious connotations come into play. The children are singing "Hosanna, hosanna to the lamb that was slain." The sound of these children and their chanting bring even more peace to the individual spirit and some even give an act of contrition for the wrongs in their lives.
The stories are geared toward those who believe in life after death and to some who have little faith as to what might come after one dies to the world. My hope is that the reader may acquire some hope of a future life after the death of a love one, or even their own death.
