Dark Horse Spirit: Beyond Redemption Written and Illustrated by Margaret E. (Marti) Johnson Published by FriesenPress on May 7, 2014 My uncle's passion was mountain climbing, and his body was never recovered after he fell into a crevasse in the Yukon. I was a teenager, and became obsessed with fear that he had somehow survived and continued to suffer.
One night, he appeared to me looking youthful, healthy and happy. Without speaking he conveyed that he lived on, and I should stop worrying.
I was not the only person to see him standing in the doorway of my bedroom that night. A little girl in an adjacent room described him the next day at breakfast.
Death, where is thy sting?

unfamiliar landscape.Precariously grasping
at long-held religious convictions while examining her own shortcomings, she
wonders if her journey will lead her to heaven, or if she is truly ‘Beyond Redemption.’
