The Trapping is a tragic love story between Sara Livingston and Gabe Chaplin. Gabe is in college where he studies painting and is waiting for the right opportunity to break out of his emotional shell. He lives with his sick mother who he's forced to take care of because he is an only child.

Sara is an angel with a mysterious past who jumps from one body to the next. Sara isn't supposed to know this, but she does, and this creates conflict and confusion for her. She jumps into people who shouldn't have been killed. Sometimes it's because they might contribute something important to society, such as inventing something in the future, and other times it's because their children will do something important. Vela also slowly introduces the tall man, who is chasing after Sara.

All Gabe wants is to be like Sara so he can be with her forever, and he will do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal.
