Description

Is Toy Johnson an angel of mercy gifted with miraculous psychic powers? Or is this strikingly beautiful woman a kidnapper and killer, with a growing list of children as victims? This is the startling question bestselling author Nancy Taylor Rosenberg poses in her remarkable new novel.Who she really is and what she really does are bewildering questions even for Toy Johnson. She only knows that a near-death experience has launched her on a journey into the unknown - a journey she is destined to repeat again and again with astonishing results. When she returns to her familiar work world as a teacher in Southern California and her seemingly ideal marriage to a brilliant surgeon, she is haunted by dreamlike memories of children on the brink of death - children she believes she somehow has saved.Her husband, Stephen, thinks she is hallucinating. Her best friend, Sylvia, thinks she is suffering from the frustrations of a childless marriage. The staff of a high-tech Manhattan hospital thinks this is how she deals with her mysterious and frightening malady. Yet despite what anyone thinks, when Toy sees herself on television rescuing a boy from a deadly fire, she knows she is a purveyor of miracles - a living angel. But this newfound vision of herself is challenged when she is arrested for kidnapping and charged with murder.show more
