THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING NOVEL - GET IT HERE
James is a young man with a terminal illness and a family that is falling apart because of it. Apart from trying to deal with his own mortality, James also has to cope with a father who is running away from reality by withdrawing from his son, a mother who is constantly fearful, and a sister who sees more than she should.
When James meets Marcham, a mystical beast who takes him on a series of powerful spiritual journeys, James begins to understand the meaning of life, death, and family.
A magically eloquent story that will open hearts to the power of love and forgiveness.
It feels like a lovely 'gift' to me when people who have read my book feel moved to write up what they thought. In these busy times, somebody making the effort to write a review is very much appreciated. I've collected some of the most recent here...
“[Rachel] is a talented, exceptional writer who ... makes the reader feel a host of different emotions....eloquent and beautifully descriptive, her [words] floored me and instilled a real sense of wonder. I am in real awe... Her talent is brilliant, and I would not be surprised if this book is widely known one day, it certainly deserves to be! To summarise my thoughts on this charming, brilliant, inspiring novel, I would say, if you are looking for an emotive read that will stay with you for a long time, then this book is undoubtedly for you. This stunning piece of literature gets 5-stars from me"

"A really lovely book which I thoroughly enjoyed. Extremely descriptive using many words I'd never come across before. A difficult subject very beatifully written with an ending which left me in tears. Well done Rachel. Can't wait for the next one."
PickyP - Amazon Review
"This is a magical book beautifully and poetically written. Rachel has a wonderful insight into the spiritual and I enjoyed every word (except that I had to look up a few in the dictionary!) It is the story of a teenager with a terminal illness, and his growth along his journey. I would definitely recommend this book."
Gabrielle - Amazon Review
"A delightfully powerful story of love, truth and acceptance. Rachel Davidson transports you to a potentially painful place, but somehow enlightens you and the characters within, with light and understanding. A difficult to subject, tackled in the most uplifting way!"
S Fricker - Amazon Review
"An astoundingly powerful book, it made me cry (several times!!)”
Gina Gardiner, International Bestselling Author of “Chariots on Fire”
“This book set my heart alight! A compassionate and spiritual take on the journey of a soul.”
“A deeply wise and moving story. It brought me peace.”
“AWESOME!! [Rachel's] writing reminds me of Paulo Coelho as its a beautiful story with powerful messages about real life."
Bronwyn Nash, Life Transformation Coach, Magic Roundabout Coaching
"What a profound novel. So descriptive and a real find for anyone who is drawn towards spiritual tales."
"Rachel writes exquisitely. You will be transported immediately to the places, both physical and metaphorical, that the characters inhabit. You will feel yourself drawn in to dream-like, fantastical situations, so much so that this is a book I could read time and time again....[it is] a wonderful insight into the purpose of life on earth... culminating in an emotional and breath-taking finale in the last two chapters. If you are looking for an eloquently written, fast-paced novel, then I would certainly recommend The Point of Me."
I live on the Essex/Suffolk border with my family.
I've spent most of my life wanting to be an author; so having procrastinated for years (due to a combination of being pulled into the world of business and a hang-up from my school-days which convinced me that being a writer wasn't a proper job! It was pre-Harry Potter folks!), I have now achieved this dream.
Writing is a great privilege for me. I hope you enjoy the stories I weave...
