Broken dreams donít keep former gold medal skier and Search and Rescue volunteer Trevor MacDaniel from taking life head on, but personal loss has driven home how fragile and fleeting life and innocence are. He will risk his life for someone in need, as Natalie Reeve learns when her nephew is snatched from a trail by a mountain lion.
An eidetic savant, Natalie processes emotional images that lodge in her mind by sculpting the faces in clay. She displays her nature statues at her gallery, but hides the faces that are part of her gift, part of her disability. Seeing beneath the surface, she processes the micro expressions and reveals, in clay, the person she sees with Godís eyes.
Fleur Destry lost her sight at fourteen, but that doesnít stop her from painting studies in colors she now sees only with her mindís eye. Her oil paintings are the perfect match for Nattieís sculptures, a fit as natural as their new friendship.
Redford, Colorado, has recovered from the bizarre events of the previous fall, but Jonah Westfall is still intent on protecting his own when something dark once again threatens the tranquility of his burgeoning town. Strapped for personnel and resources, he relies on Trevor and even Natalie to unravel the threat posed by someone who identifies himself with the fallen angel of Miltonís Paradise Lost and imagines Trevor his opposite, an archangel and heavenís chosen.
Very Surprised! Intoxicated!| Posted August 16, 2011
I was not expecting what I got from this book. I was so wrapped up in the characters! The story sucked me in and I didn't want to miss a word of what happened. The story seemed so real and tangible since the characters were so far from perfect and yet they searched for way to do good.
The reason I was so surprised is because I read the first book in the series "Invincible", and hated it. It was way to far out and just plain down weird. But I thought I'd try her again, and I'm glad I did.
It's the story of a man who once was a famous athlete, but now strives to make up for his arrogance and the way he hurt others by working with search and rescue. A woman, who has such a photographic memory that if she doesn't sculpt a face out of her memory it's all she can see. These two struggle through life and the problems in it together.
I received this book for free from the Waterbrook Multunomah Publishing company for the purpose of this review.
