Publisher's Summary

In this exquisitely crafted story of love and loss, sorrow and survival, sacrifice and redemption, two strangers become bound by a tragedy that takes one life and saves another. Emily Barnes has no time to prepare for the news that her husband, Jack, has been the victim of an automobile accident. Suddenly, she is plunged into the world of hospitals, doctors, and life-and-death decisions. There she meets Steven Sampson, a man whose health is steadily deteriorating as he waits for the ultimate gift, a new heart to replace his own failing one. Emily and Sam cross paths in Jack's final hours, but neither is aware that Jack's death will save Sam's life, or that, in a stunning transcendence of fate, Sam will ultimately have a chance to perpetuate Jack's gift.
