    This book raises questions about communication with the dead, life after death, and whether there are really any coincidences.  It's both entertaining and thought-provoking.  Unlike some books which deal in big questions, the characters are still the focal point of the story, instead of props for a philosophical exploration.  The characters are lovable but not perfect, and I felt their grief, their hope, and their happiness.

    Small quibbles with the writing style:  Quarles doesn't use all the past tenses available to her, so there are a few awkward or temporarily confusing bits.  In dialogue, most or all of her American characters say, "I've a car" instead of "I've got a car" or "I have a car."  I'm not sure I know any Americans who regularly use the "I've a [fill in the blank]" construction.  It's a little thing, but it tends to come up in conversation a lot, and it kept tripping me up.  Otherwise, the writing is very smooth, with some really nice descriptions and powerful passages.

    The plot and pacing are very good, and the way Quarles shows the characters' grief in the beginning is exceptional.  The ending, too, is pitch perfect, and the ride along the way is enjoyable.  I loved the scientific and philosophical details about psychic phenomena. 

    This is an interesting, thought-provoking read, and I especially recommend it if you've ever wondered whether your loved ones have tried to communicate with you from the world beyond.
