Do you like suspense? If so, this is the book for you.
Jake wakes up to his house on fire. He's being overcome with smoke. He knows he won't make it out. But then he feels a presence - a young girl. She encourages him. He can't die yet. His son needs him. He and the girl make it out a live.
Her name is Louisa. She doesn't remember anything else - how she got in the burning house or even anything about her family or where she is from. The sheriff asks the Spencers to take her in for a while. Amy Spencer is still dealing with the miscarriage she had a couple of months ago. Louisa frightens her. She sees things like the hurt people carry inside. And she believes. When she prays God moves.
There is an evil that has invaded the community. A serial murderer is at work. All too soon he sets his sights on the Spencers and Louisa.
This is an exciting novel of suspense. The supernatural invades the community, the good from Louisa and the evil from the murderer. This is not a cozy murder mystery. Throats are slashed and the last fifty pages or so are nail bitingly intense.
Besides the great suspense, there is also the issue of continuing to trust God when circumstances do not go the way we'd want or when we are terribly hurt.
This novel kept me reading from beginning to end. For suspense that involves the spiritual realm, this one is a winner.
