Berry Morgan, a prize-winning author living out her days in a nursing home, works out a unique partnership with an aspiring writer. BJ Appelgren will transcribe Berry's memoirs, and in return Berry will help improve BJ's writing. The unanticipated friendship at a critical time in both women's lives surprises them. While working on her memoirs, Berry creates a unique course in writing that causes BJ to re-examine the inner turmoil of her baffling perceptions regarding death and the mystery of after-life.
The elder's optimistic influence does not end with her death. Unexpected events conspire to bring The Transparent Feather to a life-affirming conclusion, and BJ, herself, to a belated coming of-age. This book speaks to anyone who has had an intuitive experience but whose rational outlook may have gotten in the way of appreciating the true meaning.

...a reader's comment from Amazon...***** Emilie Du Chatelet, IL "This book is fantastic! It is a beautiful and touching glimpse into the experiences of someone in the midst of an amazing personal transformation. This inspirational work centers on the author's exploration of her true heart's desire (becoming a writer). In the book, it is clear that along with the development of her writing talent, life provides her with an additional reward; She walks away with an increased awareness and deepened understanding of relationships, life, death, and the importance of the present moment. This is a wonderful and inspiring read, and I highly recommend it."
