Synopsis

IF YOUR DEATH COULD HELP
MANY FAMILIES, AND SAVE MANY LIVES,
WOULD YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO DIE..?
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

WHEN I SAW DEATH is an ingenious story of love, loss and redemption and unlike most novels of this genre, is one of the most inspiring stories of the season!

In a 1981 year setting, Matthias was quite young when he found himself living alone with his mom, a single-parent forced to move back at her own mother’s home in the countryside. Matthias’ older sister died at childbirth and this terrible loss and guilt give way to a bitter living existence between both his mom and dad.

The emotional break-up of his parents weaves into a sensitive story of a young lonely boy’s acceptance of early death and his mother’s struggle to accept the future by courageously living every moment in the present.

When Matthias, an eleven-year-old near-perfect son suffers his first asthma attack, his mother Ava is devastated. “How do you cope when you can feel the impending death of your only child?”
Eva is still trying to figure that out.

Now frustratingly poor she places emphasis on keeping her child’s chin up and her own heart safe. She works hard at keeping both their spirits alive, but all Eva can do is live each day with Matthias full of joy and hope!

Together, they set out on a journey filled with courage and love, not knowing exactly what their future holds, and learning to live in the present, helping more people along the way than they had ever thought possible.

When a single sudden moment turns into horror, this family begins a journey of courage. Surrounded by love, Matthias learns the real meaning of his purpose, and all with a strange twist he impacts the people he never before thought about.

Dying is a premise that young Matthias is growing accustomed to. After leaving his life with his mother due to a severe asthma attack, he learns that he has been chosen to live and die many times again, in order to leave a mark on a world where people’s hearts seem to have grown cold.

Matthias is willing to work, willing to die for the cause of the spirit council until he meets his new family. Never having a father before, Mathis becomes unwilling to let go of the man he has grown to love. His new sister, Sue is seeing the changes in Matthias, from what her actual brother was like. He has to work around her skepticism while he works to soften the heart of someone near to him, not even knowing who that someone is.

While he is growing to love another family, his old family is getting a huge lesson in love and loss. Without even knowing it, Matthias is changing lives, and changing hearts from far away. Love extends all distances, as his mother learns to deal with the loss of her only son, and tries to understand where she wants to take the relationship with her ex, who had walked out on her while she was pregnant.

In the end, the fate of one person’s heart lies in the hands of 11-year-old Matthias. Will he sacrifice himself to complete his assigned task and save a person, or will he selfishly decide to remain in the first place where he has found comfort?


This book will throw you straight into Matthias' and Eva’s world, where you will find yourself holding your breath right along with them.

EXCERPTS:

WISD Excerpt:
“You see my dear son last night you truly died and now you have been sent to us in order to allow the fulfillment of our undertaking.”
“At that point, I could have fainted only if I weren't dead already!”
................................................................................................................
WISD Excerpt:
“The Spirit Council believes that in a world where we cause each other pain so freely, the only way to slow us down and make us actually learn to love again is to let us feel some of the pain that we cause. The only problem is: Matthias loves to live. He grows to love his new family and his new life. He knows what he has to do, but he doesn’t know if he will have the willpower to do it.”
................................................................................................................
WISD Excerpt:
“Three other small children ran ahead of us in a way that they were very familiar with their surroundings. There were my two brothers and sister. We eventually came to the end of the tree line and stopped at a roadway where everyone excitedly sat on the railing waiting for our father, Michael. And in a short moment, I saw him walking towards was, all of my siblings ran forward to help with the parcels he carried. I didn’t know what to do so I just stood still and admired the way he looked at me as he walked closer. And then the most remarkable thing happened, my dad, picked me up in his arms and swung me around his back and carried me home.”
...............................................................................................................
WISD Excerpt:
“What was I supposed to do now? I couldn’t stay out wandering the streets, especially at night like this. If anyone was to drive by they’d find me suspicious, a kid walking around by themselves in the dead of night. It would be especially bad if a police car drove by because they’d almost certainly stop and then I’d have to answer some difficult questions.”
................................................................................................................
WISD Excerpt:
“As we ran alongside the hunter and the animal, I couldn’t help but notice that the animal was still alive and almost unnoticeably, but seemingly painfully gasping for air. He seemed weak but yet still alive. As I passed him his eyes opened slightly to look at me, I slowed down but Sue pulled on me a bit to hustle me forward. I thought I saw tears in its eyes.”

Advance praise

"This book is an incredible journey not only for the characters but for the reader as well. I felt very drawn to the path of the main character and how he was forced to deal with something that no one should have to go through. But as we journey with him, we see the lives of so many being transformed into something greater....into a greater version of themselves. This book is a gift to the reader, helping them keep in perspective the power of love, and not taking life for granted."

Cxandra – PR Marketing Expert

“WISD is a very captivating novel that had me glued to its pages from start to end. Although I was very emotional through it all, it was especially appealing as it hit home for me (I come from a family with asthmatic tendencies...my mom, my 7-year-old son who was diagnosed with the condition when he was only 7 mths. old, and my 15-year-old cousin who died from a sudden attack one evening when he was at home relaxing with his Abuela). This is a definite must-read, but be warned!...it is guaranteed to leave you red-nosed!.."

Elicia L.M. Gordon – Modern Languages Expert

"In this book author explains how a heartbroken child learns to face the odds of life. How the trials and tribulations of life and death make him discover a meaningful path for life and relationships. He tries to see life through the lens of reality. It changes the perspective altogether!"
