A mesmerizing debut novel about love, grief, and the ghosts who show up where we least expect them.

Sarah McConnell's husband had been dead for three months when she saw him in the grocery store.

What does a woman do when she's thirty-nine, childless, and completely alone for the first time in her life? Does it mean she's crazy to think she sees her late husband beside a display of pumpkins? Or is it just what people do, a natural response to grief that will fade in time? That's what Sarah McConnell's friends told her, that it was natural, would last a season, and then fade away.

But what if there was another answer? What if he was really there? They never found the body, after all. What if he is still here somehow, and about to walk back into her life?

From the Back Cover:

Sarah McConnell's husband had been dead three months when she saw him in the grocery store . . .

What does a woman do when she's thirty-nine, childless, and completely alone for the first time in her life? Is she crazy if she sees her husband standing beside a display of plastic pumpkins? Is that a natural response to grief that will diminish in time? And is it grief that triggers an affair with her brother-in-law?

Sarah's friends tell her that her glimpses of her husband will last a season and then fade away. But what if there is another answer? After all, his body was never found. What if he is real? What if he is planning to walk back into her life?
