              Engulfed by a deadly house fire on Christmas morning, 12-year-old Solon and 10-year-old Liam Bailey succumb to the smoke and leave their bodies on Earth below. As their souls navigate a mysterious new realm, the boys yearn to return home - but discover any attempts to contact and... comfort their heartbroken parents are dangerous. In their quest to reconnect with their former world and bring peace to their grieving parents, the brothers grapple with new rules of the afterlife. They learn to converse without speaking, manipulate objects using their minds and summon mythical dragons at will. Guided by the spirits they meet and their own intuition, the boys repeatedly risk the safety of their fascinating afterlife, returning to earth until eventually they grasp the enormous strength of their bond to family and friends. Based on the author's own loss of her two sons, this story demonstrates love's unstoppable ability to connect us forever to those we cherish. This is at once a poignant and ultimately uplifting tale of love reaching beyond the boundaries of life and death to a lasting relationship - one that crosses the horizon. Deanna Emberley Bailey began writing her sons' otherworldly journey as a healing exercise. Her first few pages grew into an outpouring of sadness, love, yearning and belief, a story that helped her survive the sudden, unexpected death of both of her children. Deanna lives in Vermont with her husband, Chris.
