Publisher's Summary

From Jennifer J. Chow, author of the award-winning The 228 Legacy, comes a young adult novel about immigrant struggles and family conflict. It's 1880 in Fresno, California when 17-year-old Topaz Woo dies after giving birth. She can get an extension in a non-physical body if she uses The Ten Commandments to influence her newborn.
Over the course of ten years, she finds herself stymied in parenting by intergenerational drama and spiritual battle. Will she adjust to an otherworldly existence and give her daughter a solid foundation? Or will she become mired in family disputes and forfeit her soul to evil?

Interesting take on afterlife

This story is unique and a bit sad. It is about a mother's love and her journey to help her daughter. The story starts off with the mother dying during childbirth. It is sad because it could have so easily been prevented. Her father-in-law is a piece of work.

Narration was fairly good and brought the story to life.

The journey is an unusual one because the mother will have to incorporate one of the 10 commandments into her daughter's life yearly. She will have ten years to get through all of them. It is frustrating that she cannot be much of a part of her daughter's life. Occasionally, she is able to interact with her but very minimally.

It was a good story with some unique ideas about the afterlife. I enjoyed listening to it.
