FREQUENCY OF SOULS

Mary Kay Zuravleff

At almost forty, George Mahoney has been designing Coldpoint fridges for as long as he can remember. At this point, enter Niagara, tall, clumsy and myopic, the polar opposite of George’s demure wife Judy. As they sit working together each day, Niagara, with her quest for electrical evidence of life after death, begins to seep into his consciousness. The protective shell that George has so carefully constructed to guard against love and spontaneity begins to crumble as he rediscovers himself in this gentle and charming love story.
