Book Description

Lewis Evans, an award-winning writer from Twain's hometown, has been blasted by the worst news he could get—his wife Sally has died in an auto accident. The next news is just as shocking. His idol Mark Twain comes calling to offer condolences and guidance. But how could it be the literary genius, and brilliant wise-cracker, gone from the earth for a century and a half?

The fellow announces that he is, indeed, the spirit of Twain and has been sent by Sally. He looks and sounds like Twain, and he knows things about Lewis, his wife, and their family that only Sally could have told him. But it's impossible!

Twain, and his particular brand of humor, and deep wisdom, may be just the shake-up Lewis needs. Twain quotes himself, saying, "I think we never become really and genuinely our entire and honest selves until we are dead—and not then until we have been dead years and years. People ought to start dead, and they would be honest so much earlier." Lewis recognizes the words. "That's from your pages, Eruption!" And then Mark smiles. "This is going to work out very well…"

When Lewis puts his idea of what is possible on hold, the two men set off on a grand steamboat journey down the mighty Mississippi River, the river they both love and call home.

Lewis figures he will get to swap stories of years spent piloting the river, and of years spent lost and wandering the world. He is teased into thinking he might get a peek into the secrets of life and death from the storyteller he admires most. And, that he may get to see Sally one more time. Most of all, he will discover how he can live the rest of his life alone, yet in joy and love.

In a climactic scene, cradled in a hot spring in a Natchez Native American ceremony of renewed life, Lewis begins to understand this quest. He faces down hard truths and blazing light with the force of love . . . and all will carry him home.
