Lance Corporal Kenneth Pines was a United States Marine killed in action while serving his country. Taken from this world quickly, he left behind a younger sister and four fellow Marines he had served beside until the day he died in front of them. Just when he thought he had completed his last mission, he finds himself trapped between worlds, left to discover and carryout the most important objective he'd ever been assigned.
Quinn Blair has been on her own since her grandmother passed away four years ago. She has no known relatives and her job as a nurse has left her very little time to nurture close friendships. Comforting terminally ill children makes her feel emotionally connected in a way she can't seem to find outside the hospital walls. Spending hours with children who are slowly slipping from this world to the next has made her sensitive to that mysterious space between.
Death might come quickly, but going "home" isn't always easy. As Kenneth waits to pass from this world into the next, he finds friendship in Quinn to comfort him until then.
This is the final book in the Dear Bailey Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it will spoil the other stories if you have not read them yet. Also, reading the Dear Bailey series first will enhance this storyline.
