Linda and her identical twin sister, Lou Ann, share everything growing up: a crib, their clothes, friends, and a special twin ESP. As young adults they both come out as lesbian. They are drawn to work in healing professions, Lou Ann as a social worker and psychoanalyst, Linda as a professional astrologer. When Lou Ann dies of cancer at age fifty-six, Linda experiences a soul-crushing loss. Through dreams, healers, the love of her family, and her study of something new--astrological death charts--she recovers and goes on to help others who suffer overwhelming grief.
