“This call, it draws lines across the flow and binds all these threads of song into a knot, a coil, a snare.”In the vastness of the ocean, everything can be lost, and anything can be found. This is the realization of an unwitting whale, who is already struggling to have his own voice heard within his pod, as he travels endlessly through the seasons of life. Yet, outside influence has another path for him to follow, when he swallows a discarded bag of letters, all of which are addressed to God. As the whale begins to digest the weight of human suffering and desire, he finds that he is slowly transformed, and the world around him, including his own relationships with kin is also changed. The navigation of this illuminated self is told in words and pictures, as an amalgamation of narrative, vision, and multiple voices, all crying out to be heard. Plagued by doubt and inner turmoil, the whale attempts to make sense of this alien weight he now carries, as he internalizes the fears of humanity and slowly takes them on as his own. But, as the whale attempts to shed this burden of the other, he may also find that these new emotions he carries are the key to his own light and freedom.

Ms Karney currently lives deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains with her family. She started her life as a marine biologist, although her love of the narrative has led her in many directions. She now holds a Masters in Psychology, and uses a variety of modalities to promote self-attenuation. At present, she is committed to sparking emotional development through literature and art, and healing social dualities. This is her second novel, after her debut of Saints and Lovers.
