It’s a ghost story, a revenge story, a dog story, a love story
Joanna DeAngelis dies wrong. Consumed by breast cancer, betrayals, disappointments, and a blind lust to avenge a badly broken heart, on her deathbed she turns away from her devoted daughters and her dog, and finds herself alone in a darkness of her own making. With no light to guide her to death’s promised land of peace, Joanna’s ghost plots a course for revenge on her much-younger ex, Ned McGowan, the man who abandoned her to take up—and trade up—with another woman.
Joanna’s desperate needs—when she was alive, and now, while she’s trying to die properly—inspire a deep descent into the seat of the soul, an unflinching look at choices and consequences, at the last gasps of lust and love, and the wisdom to know how to go when it’s time.
