When Maureen goes searching for Halloween decorations in her attic she finds a wrapped gift from her husband, Tommy, who had died of cancer six months before. Tommy had been an abusive husband, both physically and emotionally, and the idea that he had left her a gift was unusual yet intriguing. When she opens the gift she finds a GPS machine by a company called Quija. The GPS at first makes her contemplate traveling wherever she feels like going, something she never would have thought of doing when her husband kept her painfully tethered to their house, isolated from everything and everyone, other than her kids, that made her happy. But when the GPS begins speaking in a male voice and cursing her as her husband used to do, she knows something is very wrong.
As she tries to convince herself she is imagining the abusive directions from the GPS it begins to reveal a secret that only Maureen and Tommy would know, one centering around her husband's death. Is the ghost of her husband coming through the GPS to continue to wreak havoc on Maureen's life? And will she be able to survive the directions the GPS is sending her in?
It could be that I am not a big fan of the paranormal or it could be that this story is just so far from the very real sorts of stories that Ms. Weiner usually writes, but I just could not enjoy this short story. It was dark and sad and, with the exception of Maureen showing some defiance against her husband after decades of abuse, just didn't have any positive points. Ms. Weiner's writing is good as always, so I can't hate it, but I would say this is the least enjoyable books of hers I have read. If you haven't read anything else by Ms. Weiner, definitely do not start with this story as you probably won't continue
