MELINDA: My name is Melinda Gordon. I just got married, just moved to a small town, just opened an antique shop. I might be just like you. Except from the time I was a little girl, I knew that I could talk to the dead. Earthbound spirits my grandmother called them. The ones who have not crossed over because they have unfinished business with the living and they come to me for help. In order to tell you my story, I have to tell you theirs.
