In the movie Ghost, the passionate moment when Patrick Swayze is able to reach out to Demi Moore from the other side touched people in a way that few movies do. Can a departed loved one really change the course of our lives? Diana von Welanetz Wentworth knows with all her heart that love does transcend death. It happened to her.

From the beginning, Diana Webb and Paul von Welanetz were a storybook couple. Their courtship was a transcontinental whirlwind. The enchantment of their first days together seemed to grow richer with time, and endured through twenty-five years of marriage. Diana and Paul shared everything, personally and professionally. Their passion for cooking, entertaining, and bringing people together led them to successful careers as award-winning cookbook authors, as hosts of a television show, and later as founders of the Inside Edge, an influential human-potential organization. Regarded by friends as a perfect match, they were even named "One of L.A.'s Most Romantic Couples" by Los Angeles magazine.

But one day, everything changed. They discovered that their adventure together was to be cut short, for Paul was diagnosed with cancer. Diana was devastated. Soon afterward, in rapidly declining health, Paul told her, "I don't want you to be alone." She replied impulsively, "Then send me someone!" He responded, "I will." That promise is at the heart of the extraordinary story told in Send Me Someone.

Not long after Paul's death, things began to happen to Diana that made it very apparent that Paul was still "present" in her life and actively concerned with her well-being. Within months, fate introduced her to a new man-- Ted Wentworth. But he wasn't at all like the dreamy, romantic Paul. And hardly the sort of man that Diana thought Paul might send to her.

Ted was a prominent attorney-- realistic, funny, mischievous, even a little confrontational. Despite the obvious differences, Diana found herself falling in love with Ted and began to discover another side of him-- his extraordinary sense of intuition. Ted revealed something that astonished Diana-- he felt a startling inner connection to Paul von Welanetz! In fact, a series of remarkable occurrences soon convinced them both that Ted was indeed the "someone" Paul promised to send.

Send Me Someone is both a romantic love story and a credible account of communication with someone from "the other side." It is an engaging, real-life tale, proving that love, once known, never really dies. Send Me Someone is, without a doubt, the most compelling love story of the year.
