On a bitterly cold night under the stars, an old man willingly embraces the end of his life. Illness and a revelation of betrayal have convinced him that the time has come. But in dying, Gregory Williamson discovers that time is not what he believes it to be, and neither are life and death. By the shadowy being who calls herself Lucy, he is drawn into an awareness of the true complexity of existence and given a chance to live another life. A life that could make the world a better place.
Better, that is, from a certain point of view.
