Mia Gretel Augustus, not a lick over 44 and preceded as she walks by a sharp blonde quiff, is living a safe and dependable life on the coast as she manages an odd gift.


Since her brother’s death, she has seen people’s souls and helped them heal. But what about her own soul and healing?


The appearance of a blue-eyed stranger in six-inch heels and a pencil skirt plunges Mia back into the world of the living again. She feels her skin scrape against splintering wood, heart puff into pink like a swollen starfish, and soul crash and burst as a cresting green wave.


But will sharing herself and her gift mark the end of their love?


And what does the emergence of Mia’s wisdom mean for her future?
