Publisher Description

“ Aphoristic and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. It includes striking imagery andbreathtaking moments of insight.”
— Dominic Wakeford, consulting editor, formerly at HarperCollins and Little Brown

After enduring the loss of his wife and surviving a near fatal accident at work, Stanhope Ellis decides he' s ready for a change of scenery. Unfortunately, the people he meets in his new locale are dropping like flies, and he might be the reason.

As he struggles with whether he' s Death Man or a cosmic witness, he meets a wise nurse, Gayathri Das, who helps him navigate the emotional minefield. But will she die, like the others?

Fondness for each of the characters is easy to come by, which is a hazard in a story where death comes calling so often. Each character' s tale is filled with glimpses of ourselves and everyone we' ve ever loved, compelling the reader to hear them out, maybe for the last time. It' s a dizzying entanglement of friendship, grief, and perseverance from which there is no rush to be free. At once comforting and urgent, this book will fill your cup, break your heart, and put it back together, winking all the way.

A brilliant and memorable debut novel, Mortal Weather is an existential adventure — a timely, joyous examination of life and death with an against-all-odds love story at its core. The recurring themes read as a mystery, the characters are alive and memorable, and the writing is fluid and engaging. Here are all of our voices, asking all of our questions about the essence of life in trying times.

Mortal Weather

Mortal Weather: A Novel is a beautiful debut for new and talented author K P McCarthy. After reading this engaging novel, I hoping there will many more to come. He has crafted a story that made me feel as though it was my own. Seeing what Stanhope has endured and his grief, I saw so many comparisons of myself. All throughout the book, there were times I had to pull out the tissues, while others made my heart warm. I loved meeting the different people along the way and learning about each one, while watching Stanhope grow as a person. I enjoyed going on this adventure with him, finding hope even through the greatest of pain and heartache. I believe so many other readers would find this book to be relatable for them and feel a connection with Stanhope.

Mortal Weather: A Novel will be getting a very deserved five plus stars from me. If I could give it one hundred, I would. I highly recommend it for readers and fans who love to read fiction that keeps the engaged from page one until they have read the last. I would love to read more like this one from K P McCarthy in the future. He has earned himself a new fan with this one.

I received a paperback copy of K P McCarthy’s Mortal Weather: A Novel from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
