Synopsis

The Things We Learn When We're Dead is about how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, but how we can sometimes get a second chance.



On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital - but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.



It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN, because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident… or does God have a higher purpose after all?



Despite that, The Things We Learn When We're Dead is neither sci-fi nor fantasy.  It is a book about memory and how, if we could remember things slightly differently, would we also be changed?



In HVN, Lorna can at first remember nothing. But as her memories return - some good, some bad - she realises that she has decisions to make and that, maybe, she can find a way back home.
