"Better wear waterproof mascara for this one"

He rose, searching her face, hungrily tracing with his eyes what he could not touch with his hands. The sudden fear of her disappearing caught in his chest.

Passages like this easily convey the depth of J.T. Cavanaugh's grief over the death of his wife two years earlier. Unwilling to move on until J.T. works through his grief and anger, she has come back as a spirit to give him a gentle nudge in the right direction. He just didn't count on the right direction being aligned straight toward Nancy Carpenter, the beautiful widow who's teenage son was responsible for the death of his wife.

I don't want to give away too much, but this is a remarkable story of people who have been through both sides of tragedy, who have struggled to forgive and be forgiven, and must learn to open again and trust and be trusted, in order to grab hold of that kind of happiness that can sometimes come twice in a lifetime. And I have to admit, I had to stop several times just to wipe the tears away before I could go on. It's that good.

So here's a warning: If you are the type that hates to cry in front of others, don't read this in public . . . but do read it. Just have plenty of Kleenex available.

Almost two years after his wife dies in a car accident, J.T. Cavanaugh hangs on to their old life and the only kind of love he deems possible — the true, everlasting kind he and Kelly shared.

Kelly appears to her husband in spirit form, convincing J.T. he needs to move on with his own life and in order to do that, he needs to return to the house they built together overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.

Still struggling with his grief, J.T. goes back to the waterfront town to face Jeff Carpenter, the teenager whose car hit Kelly’s. As man and boy begin to heal, guilt suddenly overpowers J.T. when he finds himself attracted to Jeff Carpenter’s widowed mother, Nancy.
