“A strange wind is coming, full of anger, pain, and rage and it wants to thrive on the souls of men. You must remove the angry soul and place him to the west. There he will be bound and keep the rest quiet.” Such is the ominous warning from Peaches’ deceased father. Readers can witness her thrilling story unfold in The Funeral Home, written by Lomasi O. Onataha.
Combining explosive suspense and thriller with sensual passion, the author turns up the heat in this riveting Native American tale. Peaches is a female funeral director whose life is seemingly perfect with her five-year-old twins and her beloved husband, Jae. Then in a blink of an eye, she loses them in a devastating car accident. Alone and bereft, Peaches goes back to her parents’ home where she tries to pick up the pieces of her life and move on. She meets her first love, Sherman, and his daughter Tasha who offer her support during her grief.
Peaches feels Jae’s presence around her and notices his handwriting on her mirror. She also sees the ghostly image of her father who leaves her with a warning about a strange wind. When the undead start walking and attacking them, Peaches, her sister Sherry, Sherman, and their friends find themselves fighting to stay alive as zombies threaten to consume them. When the undead take on the shape of their loved ones, can Peaches find the strength to say goodbye and move on? The intriguing answer awaits in The Funeral Home.
A tale of great love, loss, and the strength to survive, The Funeral Home has strong roots in Native American culture. It is a fictional story that depicts the importance of the sacred grounds of the indigenous Native Americans’ ancestry and the mistakes made by others who have disregarded these beliefs. Engrossing from beginning to end, readers won’t want to put down this riveting book. This book will be featured at this year’s Pennsylvania Library Association Book Exhibit in Lancaster, PA on October 24-27, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
