Stephen, a young, disembodied soul is sent to the earthly plane by his spiritual master. After his harrowing previous life in flesh, he is petrified. But it’s part of the plan. ‘Every soul must fall into flesh to learn and grow.’ The words of the master ring in his ears—there is no escaping his sojourn.
Stephen is to be a walk-in, trading places with another soul. On earth, he finds himself in the body of a full grown man. Memories that are not his flood him, a veil descends and he is thrust into a life he does not quite understand but somehow knows.
Lilah, a socialite in a gilded cage, is betrothed to a man hand-picked by her father. Although Costas is the perfect match, bringing together two families of wealth, he is far from ideal.
Stephen and Lilah meet. The attraction is swift, undeniable and unfortunately ill-fated. When framed for a crime by Costas, Stephen must decide if life is still worth living.
