White Apples is a philosophical masterpiece disguised as a dramatic thriller. The story involves a woman who crosses over bring back the dead father of her unborn child. The father returns to the world remembering parts of the afterlife and able to perform mystic feats he doesn’t understand. The unborn child communicates with his mother and passes on his destiny to save the earth from Chaos, which, in this incarnation, has become sentient. The storyline takes a back seat, however, as the reanimated father attempts to remember critical information from the afterlife and meets with a guide of sorts that explains the nature of life. I found this book fascinating and it provided me with hours of discussion material and food for thought.
