Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Melinda Gordon is a young woman who has the ability to perceive and interact with ghosts. She is married to a man named Jim Clancy and owns a shop in Grandview Square that sells antiques called "Same As It Never Was".

Melinda is first introduced as a young girl at a funeral for someone she doesn't know, however her grandmother, Mary Ann, tells her what she has to do. Melinda is unaware of what is going on, but she knows that she can see the spirit of the deceased. Her grandmother teaches Melinda how to help the spirit find peace by crossing over to the other side by delivering a message from the ghost to his widowed wife.

In a similar vision, an adult Melinda is at her wedding to Jim Clancy. She throws the bridal bouquet, which is caught by her best friend Andrea Marino. Melinda sees the spirit of her husband's dead brother, Daniel Clancy.

Soon after, Melinda and Jim, newlyweds, move into a new house that Jim is renovating. Melinda receives a visit from a sergeant in search of his son. Melinda has to tell his son about her secret, and he reacts negatively when she does so. Melinda helps the spirit to cross over, but only after his son comes to believe in her. Melinda later consults with Andrea about her ghost problems.
