Summary

Pia Vorhees, a widow left with nothing but her husband's secret, unfinished manuscript, is confused. After Hugh's passing, Pia has faced a number of challenges to her ideas of what awaits people after death. The greatest challenge to her beliefs comes from the strange behavior of her granddaughter, Summer. Summer has always reminded Pia of Hugh. Throughout her young life, Summer has displayed idiosyncratic behaviors that are intimately similar to those of her late grandfather. These similarities become far too significant, however, when Summer wins the Nobel Prize in Literature for the book written by her grandfather-a book she should never have known about. Pia does not understand how Summer could have known about the manuscript that she had kept secret since Hugh passed two years before Summer was born. She becomes suspicious of Summer and questions her opinions on life, death, and identity. Could Summer be the reincarnation of Hugh, or could he be communicating with her from beyond the grave?

Excerpts

Pia. Noetic. You will find the answer. Pia. Noetic!. Do not forget the word. Pia awoke is a cold sweat. She was a little disoriented and then she remembered. Marla had spent the night on her bed and she had slept on the sofa. Marla was gone and the bed was made up. She had raised a good girl! Wasn't that nice of Marla. And then her mind wandered back to her dream. She sat down at the computer and googled. Noetic: derived from the Greek nous for which there is no equivalent in English. Noetic refers to 'inner feeling' - a kind of intuitive consciousness. A direct and immediate access to knowledge beyond what is available to our normal senses and the power of reason. Pia sunk into her chair and thought about this for a long time. She recalled the last night's conversation with her daughter. Suddenly, she bolted up from her chair. One Child Born!, she screamed to an empty house. Rifling through numerous papers on her desk, she found what she was looking for. According to some Buddhist thinking, at the death of one personality, a new one comes into being, much as the flame of a dying candle can serve to light the flame of another
