What if all the bad things that happened to you . . . didn’t? What if all the accidents, all the bad decisions, all the pain and suffering from diseases and cancers could just be – skipped over?
In a poignant story of love, life, and loss, Frank Peroretti crafts yet another page-turner of a novel. Dane and Mandy had the storybook romance; married at a young age, touring the world as a magician and beautiful assistant, taking the world by storm and loving every minute they shared together. Then a motor vehicle accident took Mandy from him, and Dane struggled to start over again.
At a small coffee shop, Dane is mesmerized by the 19-year old beauty who is holding the audience spell-bound with her magic act. She is performing illusions that even he can’t understand. More disconcerting is the fact that her mannerisms, her quirks, her very persona is familiar . . . hauntingly so. How could this be?
As Dane and his new protégé establish and begin to build a new professional relationship, the uneasiness grows. As does the danger. And for Dane, the climax will be more than he ever bargained for.
Frank Peretti does a thorough job at explaining otherwise complex theories while keeping the reader firmly hooked with his masterful prose and winsome storytelling.
