FERGUS is a young spirit who is preparing under the wise guide Abraham, so that he can help other children find the special gifts they already possess and show those who have still yet to remember that life really can be beautiful. As he looks around the world, chooses his parents, and gets ready for his mission on earth, he is concerned— but with Abraham’s help, he hopes to remember to keep love in his heart and leave no room for fear.
Meanwhile, Kate is growing up an only child, with parents who are very busy. Even so, she has a free spirit; she daydreams and begins to learn important lessons from Nanna Teddy, her grandmother. As she gets older, her parents separate, and eventually she moves to Scotland with her boyfriend. In Scotland, she becomes ill and struggles with her life. Fergus watches as she works to find herself—and he has no idea how closely they will be connected.
This story of wonder, magic, love, and honesty tells the tale of a young spirit coming to earth, a young woman dealing with illness and fear, and how the two find each other.
