About the Book

Just as twenty-two-year-old Ylian Lareza thinks that life can't get any better--she’s found the perfect man and the perfect career--tragedy strikes and she dies of a heart attack.


But Ylian’s story is just beginning. After dying in the arms of her fiancé, Miguel Montes, she awakens to find herself in Paninap, a temporary dwelling place set aside for young adults who have died suddenly. During her forty days in Paninap, she must visit the dreams of living people – family members, friends, and strangers – to help her forget her earthly life and prepare her for Heaven.


With the help of a new friend named Micah, Ylian (now called Muriel) struggles to accept her new identity and help a troubled little girl named Afriel. Though she still loves Miguel, she begins to fall for fellow transient Gavreel, who tries to erase his own shameful past through loving her.
