Bill Hoover, only forty-seven years old, is suddenly confronted with his untimely death from a vehicular accident. After his physical death on earth, he is unwittingly transported into an alternate reality or planet kwn as Planet Harmony. At first, he finds this new reality confounding as he tries to take in everything that just happened to him. Through the help of Cree, the person in charge of Planet Harmony, he is allowed to view scenes of his past with his beloved wife, Audrey, when they were just starting to build a family and his playful friends who made his stay on earth meaningful. As the story progresses, he learns to accept the fact of his death and learns to let go of the family and friends he left behind. The Faint Call is rich with realistic issues we are confronted with in our existence. It deals with many concerns, whether presented perennially or philosophically using domestic scenarios, ranging from life after death and its acceptance, abortion, automy, matrimony, making the most of one's life, aging, women empowerment, and many others, all of which are effectively condensed in Lorraine Foster's vella.
