       Additional Information  
      In four haunting stories, kindred souls reach out across time, space, and magical barriers to rescue and transform each other. "The Spring" asks: what would the world be like if you'd never been born? In "Touch and Go," an elderly man recalls how he and a girl from an earlier time changed and enriched each other's lives. The kidnapped boy of "Checkers" finds the key to survival in the presence of another victim, long dead--until now. In "The Lion Tamer's Daughter," Melanie discovers she has a second self, living another life.
