But nothing is fictional as Carolyn Jaymes’s weaves the incredible journey of how the love of her life returns from the afterlife. Jay is a carefree dinner theatre actor.

They are deeply in love, but tragedy strikes when Jay dies suddenly. Twenty-five years later, Carolyn is married to Tom. He’s perfect on paper—the kind of man her mother wanted her to marry—but cold and distant. Trapped in a miserable marriage, one day Carolyn finds herself sitting in a medium’s office, rediscovering what she lost and finding that getting it back just might be possible. She discovers he never actually left her, watching over her from the other side as she labors through life. Carolyn and Jay get a second chance at life and love together when Jay takes over Tom's body, with Tom’s permission. As Carolyn learns how souls swap places and witnesses things that can’t be explained, her doubt fades, and she firmly believes the man who looks like Tom is indeed her Jay—and she’s also blown away that she would be blessed with a second chance at love in such a miraculous way. Nothing can keep soul mates Carolyn and Jay apart - not even death.
