MELINDA GORDON has a gift — she can communicate with earthbound spirits or ghosts who cling to the living because they have unfinished business in our world preventing them from “crossing over” or going into the light. Her journey is aided by JIM, her husband,
who worries about the emotional toll this work takes on his wife; DELIA BANKS, a new friend and employee; and psychology professor ELI JAMES who can hear ghosts but not see them. Melinda navigates between the dead and the
living with her sometimes chilling, sometimes heart-rending and sometimes amusing actions as an intermediary between the ghosts and those they haunt. In season five, Melinda gives birth to a baby boy who also has the gift of seeing spirits, but with one important difference which will have far-reaching consequences.
