An impulsive decision. A twist of fate. A new life.
On September 11, 2001, Brett Cooper checks into a flight to go on an interview for a job he doesn't want in a city where he doesn't want to live. All to make his wife happy. He loves her, but he's not happy in his marriage. Or in his body.
When boarding begins, Brett panics and gives his ticket away. When the plane strikes the World Trade Center, Brett gets a second chance. Finally, he can live the life he always wanted. Brett embraces his "death" and disappears. For eighteen years, everything is peaceful and easy. Until Jess reappears.
Jess used her husband's life insurance to go to medical school. Unfortunately, she's not really a widow. To complicate matters, Jess realizes that the love she held for her spouse is alive and well. The spouse who transitioned into Christa while they were apart.
Together, Christa and Jess must figure out what the future holds.
Can love conquer all, or is it sometimes better to let go?
