Told through equal parts teenage angst, Irish folklore and a dash of Greek mythicism, we find that the Angel's younger sister - Ms. Finnegan's protagonist from an ongoing series of books - has become bored with being a bit-player in boring old Heaven and ventures to Hell to "liven things up a bit." Enter a curmudgeonly Satan who won't abide all the fun and frivolity stirred up by her, so banishes her back to Heaven. Unfortunately, Border Control intervenes, and the "little sister" is trapped on a dry and desolate Earth now devoid of music. Enter the Angel who'll attempt to save his sister from barren Earth and a few other "obstacles" placed before her along the way.
Ms. Finnegan's short story is a fascinating read that plays fast and loose with both grammar and the English language in general, and may at times have the reader scratching their head in wonderment, but the destination is worth the journey. You will marvel at the illusionary setting of scenes Ms. Finnegan's imagination concocts, and if actually transcribed from her dreams, will have you pondering what she ate for dinner - or drank. And hoping she'll share.
