 A UK boys choir is on its way to Australia for a concert tour when it meets an early demise.

The church where the boys used to sing is sold a decade later and a new owner turns it into a music studio.

The new owner is challenged by the spirit of one of the boys to stage one last concert so they can farewell their parents.


Excerpt

A British boys’ choir is set to tour Australia when the unimaginable happens and their lives are catastrophically cut short.

The church where the boys used to sing is sold and a young couple take ownership only to find they are given the monumental task of holding one last concert for the boys so their parents can farewell them. The problem is: how do you move on the spirits of the boys trapped on the Earthly plane and hold a concert for them without telling their parents the real reason?

One Last Concert explores how to move on the spirits of people whose lives end too quickly, onto the next spiritual plane.

BOOK EXPLORES LIFE AND DEATH
St George and Sutherland Shire Leader
30th May 2013

By Monica Heary

FIVE-TIMES novelist Christopher J. Holcroft used a simple theory when he wrote his latest book.

The theory was along the lines of how it was that so often a person enters a room feels a shiver down their spine - only to find out someone has died in the room.

It was this sort of experience and a theme of exploring what happens to the "spirits" of those that have died that has fascinated Mr Holcroft for some time.

After writing a trilogy of books in the genre of adventure for youth he wrote a book for adults about the "afterlife" with Finding Thomas about a near-death experience.

The former Fairfax Journalist said that following that book "the next logical theme was to look at what if you die suddenly or out of your time."

The result is One Last Concert that takes his interest in the spiritual to a different level.

The backdrop centres on 45 teenage boys from an English village who are on their way to Australia when they meet their end.

All the villagers had a son in the choir and the book looks at the effect of the tragedy on the village.

"What I have done is look at an entire community and how they can be helped to move on and to satisfy the grieving, how one must help bring about the moving on of spirit," Mr Holcroft said.

He took almost a year writing the book which included consulting several mediums.

One Last Concert will be launched tomorrow 7 - 10pm, at St Jospeh's Catholic church hall, Parker Street Rockdale.

The book is published by Infinity Publishing (US) and costs $20 from buybooksontheweb.com

Emotionally Moving And A Wonderful Escape
Once you start, you get straight into the story line, the characters are brought to life with wonderful sensitivity.

This is a feel good book, and great for someone who has lost someone, as it gives you hope there is life outside of what we know. I found the book to be emotionally moving and it was a wonderful escape from life as we know.

A book filled with hope, community spirit and love.

Very Enjoyable And Uplifting
I found One Last Concert a pleasure to read and a book that makes you really think about the afterlife.

It was quite intriguing how the new owner of the old church brought a whole community together to help realise his dream.

The book is an easy read and one that will make the reader think about life after death and what heaven could be like.

I found One Last Concert a joy to read and highly recommend it.
