Short and to the point – There’s no time like the present: don’t live your life in the closet and let it pass you by.
Mike Ellsworth is in love with Joel, has been having an affair with him for a year, and it turns out, his wife has been cheating on him as well. Both are unhappy in their marriage, and trying to find happiness with other people. Of course all of this comes to light after Mike is severely injured in a car crash, and floats through the living world as a spirit, wandering the earth, searching for inner peace.
There’s not a whole lot I can say about this novella without giving away the ending, which is wonderful and what you’d expect from a piece of romance fiction. If you’ve ever read A Christmas Carol, you’ll understand what I mean when I say Mike is in the background watching the Cratchits live and suffer in their daily lives. Mike does this with Joel and Lori, as they sit by his side and desperately hope that he awakens from a vegetable state.
It was very touching and heartbreaking at times. I wasn’t expecting the ending, but I was grateful for it.
