Ghostbelly is Elizabeth Heineman’s personal account of a home birth that goes tragically wrong—ending in a stillbirth—and the harrowing process of grief and questioning that follows. It’s also Heineman’s unexpected tale of the loss of a newborn: before burial, she brings the baby home for overnight stays. Does this sound unsettling? Of course. We’re not supposed to hold and caress dead bodies. But then again, babies aren’t supposed to die. In this courageous and deeply intimate memoir, Heineman examines the home-birth and maternal health-care industry, the isolation of midwives, and the scripting of her own grief. With no resolution to sadness, Heineman and her partner learn to live in a new world: a world in which they face each day with the understanding of the fragility of the present.

It is a story that has been passed down generation after generation. The story of conjoined twin goddesses floating peacefully in the middle of the sea. Many of those that have seen them, usually on calm starlit nights, swear that they are the sirens of mythology, luring sailors in to their doom. Others claim that the twins are not live women, but an ancient stone structure carved to resemble two females sitting back to back. A fewbelieve they mark the gateway tothe lost city of Atlantis, or a gateway to the spirit realm. But on all accounts there is one consistency: if you listen closely, at just the right distance, you will hear them echoing on the ghostly wind . . . dozens and dozens of meowing cats. Sea of the Patchwork Cats is a sad dreamlike tale set in the quiet ashes of the human race. A must-read for Mellick enthusiasts who also adore The Twilight Zone.
