A light hearted, but provocative read, this intriguing narrative stars main character Emma Butler, she’s single, youthful, intelligent, attractive and gainfully employed, but she begins to realize that she is worthy of something more rewarding career-wise, and with no man in her life her biological clock is ticking away as well.

Meanwhile, in the heavenly regions, hilarity ensues as a discovered error concerning Emma’s predetermined life plan, causes an Archangel and other angelic beings to work feverishly to influence and manipulate, thought and action in a race against time, as they work towards Emma completing her life plan before her quickly approaching death/recall date.

One of the remaining incomplete(s) in Emma’s life is finding love and that is where Jack comes in, her yet unrealized love interest. As the angels rush to get Jack and Emma together, some truly amusing and touching moments arise.
