What if you lost everything, your family, friends—even your life—just like that?

Sarah Harper is driven to achieve success no matter the cost. She wants to do good and not hurt the people she loves, especially her children and husband, Joe, but her desire to succeed in her career too often leaves little time for family.

One cold, autumn afternoon, all of that changes when Sarah’s car plunges off a bridge and into a river. She is presumed dead by those on the “outside,” but Sarah’s spirit is still very much alive. What she discovers on the other side transforms everything about Sarah’s view of life, past, present, and future.

When Sarah is revived, she is a changed woman and the unsuspecting world around her will never be the same again.

    " So different than what I expected. Not quite as good as The Penny, Meyer/Bedford's debut novel, and if you haven't read The Penny, I would recommend it first. This was good, but not great. And The Penny was great. "
