Just when she thinks she cannot take anymore, her guardian, Joel, arrives to help her. Rebecca's life is thrown into chaos when war hits Hawaii's shore. As the Japanese bomb her home, her gift explodes within her. Loss and pain become her new way of life. She abandons all hope and shuts down her empathic abilities. With bodies littering the hospitals and seas, her calling as a nurse is put to good use, but her heart remains unreachable. Can she find her way out of the blackness and accept her true fate? Or will the prevailing death and destruction of war consume her?

This one was a bit different from the others I've read but it was still a good read. I liked the characters and the story line,made for a clean and exciting read. I however thought the narrator took away from experience for me, I'm not sure exactly what it was but it just wasn't a good fit for me ,voice wise .
I loved everything about this story, it was narrated well, even though I normally like male narrators, Cathy did quite well
