Polly Baymiller, an ethereal, has glimpsed her nine-year-old son, Tip, for the first time since she died giving birth to him. Of her three sets of twins, he's the only baby she never got to hold, and it is he she has missed most fervently in the years she has spent learning to be a ghost. Love, Polly comes to realize, is not a state of mind but a way of being. One must act on the feeling in order to make it count. And act she does, taking bold steps to make sure that Tip has the courage and curiosity he needs to make his own precious way on earth.
