First Lines...

"We have three souls, or so I'd be told. 
                     But only in death could I confirm this.
The moment the priest spoke the last prayer and sealed my coffin, I awake and floated upward in a slow drift of incense smoke, until I could travel no farther.."
                                                                  …… Three Souls by Janie Chang
                                                                           (pub. date March 2014)
