"'Light from the Pleiades' is the uncommon love story of Deirdre and Mooney, which occurs during three different time periods in their lives, beginning when they are 17 and 23 in Madison, Wisconsin. Their relationship is emotionally intense and physically passionate but comes to an end when Mooney leaves for graduate school. The action jumps forward 10 years when Mooney visits Deirdre, now diagnosed as a schizophrenic, in Green Bay. Deirdre tells Mooney that he had gotten her pregnant and that she had had an abortion. The action then jumps forward 15 years: Mooney has become a successful writer, with a personal life in flux, when he is contacted by Anna, Deirdre’s daughter and possibly his child. Deirdre has died, but her ghost speaks to Mooney, encouraging him to undergo a DNA test and to discover a greater sense of purpose in his life."
