A stunning new thriller from the father of Christian fiction—a grieving husband encounters a teen identical to his dead wife…in face, name, and magical skills.
Dane and Mandy Collins have been a popular magic act for close to thirty years. They plan to retire but soon devastation strikes and Mandy is killed in a fiery car wreck.
Reeling from his wife’s death, Dane reluctantly agrees to see a new magic act on the advice of a friend. Dane is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot readily explain. But more than anything, he is stunned by the nineteen-year-old magician who is in every respect identical to his wife, forty years ago. Little does he know that his wife has somehow traveled through time.
When Mandy and Dane reunite, they must decide what their future is…and uncover the conspiracy behind their meeting, the supernatural bent to Mandy’s magic, and who is following them.
Once again, Frank Peretti has crafted a riveting novel full of twists and mystery. This rich, rewarding novel depicts a love story that transcends time and space, to discover what death and life mean.
