Publisher's Summary

A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery.

Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned, again to save Laura from tragedy. Was he the guardian angel he seemed? The devil in disguise? Or the master of a haunting destiny beyond time and space?

    Story
    "Impressed"

    I listened to this while on a road trip from Maryland to Washington and it made the time fly by. I chose it because of the horror genre but it's really a suspense/thriller. Still, very interesting story and would recommend to anyone looking for a good thriller.

    Story
    "So strange."

    Storyline about orphans took me in, as did the "guardian angel", but then it all took a strange turn. I did not care for this time travel story & found it weird. I loved the "back to the future" time travel stories but this was not like those and did not make sense.

    "Good not great"

    I devour Koontz books and thought that this story was good but not the usual holding on to the edge of my seat writing that I've come to expect.

    Story
    "anything but predictable!"

    very soothing voice, couldn't stop listening, so unpredictable, best moment was when Stephan was able to sernd a bottle as a last ditch effort. so many cool details, well researched and tidy closing details. very fulfilling.
