Emily Barnes has no opportunity to prepare for the news that her husband Jack has been the victim of an automobile accident. So when the urgent call comes, she is plunged into an unfamiliar world of hospitals, doctors, and life-and-death decisions.
Steven Sampson has lived in this world for years, his health steadily deteriorating as he waits for the ultimate gift, a new heart to replace his own diseased organ. He has not given up hope, but the list of transplant patients is long and his fragile heart cannot hold out indefinitely. So he has begun to make peace with his fate.
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.
