I wrote this. I think it's pretty damned good. Very intellectually oriented sci fi; not for beginning readers. Check out summary and reviews on the Amazon page. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615965660, Paperback)

A novel for readers who are looking for scientific, psychological, and literary depth in science fiction.

Sometime in the middle of the 21st century:

Professor of physics Barbara Smith suffers from social anxiety disorder, but she also has a gift. She has beautiful, otherworldly visions of the outcomes of physics experiments before she does the math, and her visions have never been wrong.

Just as her life seems on the verge of becoming wonderful, a vision shows her that something terribly wrong is going to happen when the greatly enhanced Large Hadron Collider runs at full power.

Can Barbara stop the experiment? Can she convince the man she loves that she is not mad? Can she push herself beyond the psychological limits imposed upon her by a tragic life? Or is she actually mad? What...or who...is behind her visions?

How bizarre, she thought, that when I look into any empty area in the vacuum of space, that space has height because the dimension of height along selected lengths of an infinitesimally tiny string is vibrating at a certain wavelength; it has width and depth for similar reasons. We all do. We are not made of anything solid. We are all just collected bits of geometry fueled by some mysterious energy that keeps the structure of those geometric bits vibrating forever.

Please, she prayed silently, let the source of that energy be God and not some meaningless, random thing.
