A nurse tells the stunned Kate that her little girl asked not to be placed on life support just before expiring. Desperate for anything, Kate wonders about the possibility of an afterlife, so she visits those who claim they talk to the dead. Her trek sends her to Nantucket, where she meets the weird Gabriel Farr only to learn he was the focus of a murder case in Hawaii. Though Kate mistrusts him even after his explanation of being a Good Samaritan by informing the Hawaiian five-O of visions he saw. Will he channel the grieving widow to her cherished family while offering a new love or is he a con trying to get a lonely mourner in his bed?

This inspirational romance will touch the soul of readers, especially those who suffered a tragic loss with no prior warning. The story line does turn soap operaish at times as Robert Rosenblum turns up the angst. However, fans will relish shedding a few tears along side of Kate as she seeks solace and understanding to why bad things happen to good people.
