What if the best night of your life was also your last?
On the eve of a much-anticipated proposal, Meg is happier than she could have ever imagined. The future she sees for herself on that magical night is bright, one that's full of love and laughter and dreams finally realized.
That is, until one random act of violence changes everything.
Consumed by fate and forces she can't comprehend, Meg finds herself at the center of a spectral conflict that transcends life and death.
Her very soul is up for grabs in this war and, what's worse, she's not the only one.
Now, she's fighting not just for the love she lost, but the daughter she would have called her own. She must fight the battle of her life, for the sake of her friends and family, and find out for herself if love can indeed be stronger than death.
Intertwined with true ghost stories, some heart-warming, some heart-breaking, this love note to San Antonio combines history, myth, and vivid description. This is the full story of Meg and Amelinda's quest-journey, what author Laura Metzger calls "a beautifully written story with compelling characters that reach between the universe of the living and the dead to embrace their mutual destiny" and author Elena E. Giorgi calls "a beautiful tale of love and redemption".
On the day I died, I was wearing a great outfit. This is important for you to know because it turns out that your default look for eternity as a ghost is what you're wearing when you die. I mean, seriously. Who knew? If I'd have known that, I wouldn't have risked any days in mediocre clothes. In that respect, I was lucky I was on a date when I was killed, but of course, if I hadn't been on a date, on that date, maybe things would have turned out differently.
