Read It. Liked It

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—another bolt of lightning—and 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?

Koontz is like Ludlum for me or King. You can chew them out and spit them out in a weekend and be a better storyteller for going through the process. Those guys know how to propel a narrative. Zoomy zoom get me through...I can keep up.

Cool ideas and a sweeping love story. Y'all know how much I loves me a sweeping love story. And this one sweeps and has lightning storms.

Thank you Dean Koontz. I made the connections without you feeling the need to over explain everything for me. He just filled in the holes in my imagination and I appreciated it when the payoff was even cooler than I thought it would be. I bought the whole adventure through time vibe this story projects big time.
