I read this book shortly after the passing of my brother William and I must say it brought a different perspective and an odd sense of comfort that his reality while very different then mine now is still one filled with love, friendship and above all else the greatest understanding of life as we each call it. Def. not your average novel but I highly recommend this book to anyone that has lost a friend, love or family.

She is terrified that her 37 years of life were meaningless, error-ridden, and forgettable. So Helena haunts-- and is haunted by-- the life she left behind.
