Publisher's summary

It all begins in Bacon's Corner, a tiny farming community far from the interstate.... An attempted murder, a case of mistaken - or is it covered up? - identity, and a ruthless lawsuit against a struggling Christian school.

Sally Beth Roe, a young loner, a burnout, a kind of "leftover hippie", finds herself caught in the middle of these bizarre events, fleeing for her life while trying to recall her dark past. Across a vast panorama of heart-stopping action, Sally Roe's journey is a penetrating portrayal of our times, a reflection of our wanderings, and a vivid reminder of the redemptive power of the Cross.

The intensity of this best-selling novel comes alive when read by author Frank Peretti. The abridged audio recording includes sound effects and music that brings to life all the excitement and intrigue of Frank Peretti's beloved novel Piercing the Darkness.

If you don't believe!!!!

This story takes you into the unseen world like none other. Frank's vision and insights as he was writing this book could be seen, felt and heard in his reading of this tale that would make for a fantastic Hollywood movie with sequel's that would not disappoint. Well done, well done. Read the book now the audio. Time well spent when shampooing carpets in a liberal college department. Praying Frank's continued anointing and clear vision as he shares what God lays on his heart. And for all who dare to take this journey with him God's gift of Saving Grace.

Another Wow read

I love this author's work. But even more I now love his dramatic reading of his own work. Thought he could not beat the fast paced action of the first novel "This Present Darkness" But he has. Even more excitement packed into this short piece. His reading of his work just makes it more exciting. Bravo!

"background" music and animations are too loud

Frank Peretti is an amazing story writer and reader. The "background" music and animations are completely distracting and noisy - it's hard to hear Frank tell the story. I wish they had left them out.

my 2 cents.

Easy and fast reading/listening. Narrator was good, sound effects did make it hard to hear at times, but set the mood well.

Best Performance Ever!

The story is good. The narrator is awesome! The only thing I would change is the length. It should be longer and tell more of the story. It is extremely abridged

Excellent!

So eye-opening! We need to pray more! This story is a reminder that the Lord really does work through our prayers!
