"In this short story by Jason Mott, author of The Returned, a man is forced to choose between the life he has now, and the one he thought was gone forever...
Peter Galvin was just seventeen when Tracy Whitland--the love of his life--vanished without a trace. In the years after her death, he had finally moved on, gotten married, started a family. He is content with his life now--happy, even.... Until Tracy suddenly and inexplicably returns.
For weeks, Peter and his wife, Samantha, have been watching mysterious reports of people's loved ones returning from beyond, the world spinning into uncertainty and chaos. But they never imagined it would happen to them. With Tracy's unusual homecoming, Peter and Samantha must decide where they can possibly go from here, and whether their family can survive...."

Beautiful, warm, lovely story about love. The difference between strong emotional teenage love and mature married love that has begotten children. Making amends with the past, the need for closure, questioning whether infidelity of the mind is any different than the act itself. Strong real characters. Wonderful!
