Once in a while a story comes along that resonates with the very essence of what we call "humanity," and speaks to readers of every age. The Deer Effect is that story - a phenomenal #1 Amazon bestseller lauded for its artistic touch, its tender tapping at emotion, and its mesmerizing ability to speak to the hearts of readers around the world.

"ONE BRITTLE LEAF FOUND ALONG our usual path proved the days had gone wintry. Papery thin as onion skin--blanched from frosty temperatures and yellowing like the pages of an old Bible, the leaf’s long slender shafts, crooked and dry, painted my world. The blue sky dragged me out that Sunday in December—December 5, 2010, if you must know—when the temperature rose to only forty-two Fahrenheit. What was I thinking?

Hold on. Wait a second. Let me back up just a tad. For your information, I'm dead. Although I speak of myself, make no mistakes. I died this day..."

So the story begins about Hannah Demsey who is found dead near the body of a fawn on the side of the road. Rod, Hannah's husband, sets out on a journey to find the killer. With his faith waning, all truths change when Rod comes face-to-face with the only person who can tell him how his wife really died.

THE DEER EFFECT is a story of loss, redemption and forgiveness.

From the author of DROWNING--winner of the 2011 Forward National Literature Award for Drama and #1 Amazon bestseller.

Though unconventional in timing, I will say first and foremost that it will not take you long in this work to discover why Susan Wingate's books rank as Amazon's best sellers and why she has received numerous writing honors. Though fictional, The Deer Effect has realistic aspects that affect us all when it comes to appreciation, regard, and forgiveness toward one another.

Hannah Demsey's walk with Bobby, her beloved dog, would be her last as she hurried out the door following another despairing fight and threats of divorce by Rod. Life would change quickly for Rod and most mysteriously for Hannah as motorcyclists would fatally kill her and the fawn. As Wingate skillfully weaves the plot where the dog Bobby could understand and see Hannah in her changed body, the dynamics for Rod would play different as Psychiatrists and Pastor John try to make sense of his confusion and "buzzing" in the ears.

Hannah's angelic presence and altered states would continue... Read more
I don't know what I was expecting when I picked up "The Deer Effect", but I was certainly surprised by this story. I found that I could not put it down but had to keep reading to see where the tale would take me. We start out with Rod and Hannah...a couple who has seen better days in their relationship. As Hannah prepares to take her dog for a walk, Rod tells her he is leaving her....she doesn't respond and before the story progresses much further, she has been killed by the side of the road. I don't want to be a spoiler on this, so suffice it to say that this is a bit of a "fantasy" story as we continue from this point. Rod is horrified when he learns that Hannah has been killed and sets out to find the ones responsible. This is the beginning of quite a journey for him...which takes both a mental and spiritual toll on him. At times he feels that he is losing his mind....and his faith is rapidly crumbling. He seeks counsel from the pastor, his mother-in-law,... Read more
It is rare that I come across a book that is as unapologetic as this in its honesty about problems within a given relationship. Using death and a deer as devices to draw the reader in--sans admonishment--Wingate lays out the relational issues of the main characters with such a soft hand that they take on a tissue-like quality, coming together to envelop the story as drifts of snow might pile up in silence over an afternoon.

The entire tone of the book draws one onward, as if on a nature walk, with scenes appearing in the misty meadows and moving down trails alongside the flitting of fallen leaves.The ease with which the author uses the outdoors as a stage brooks of frank familiarity and a genuine appreciation of nature.
