Book description
Austin Allen can see the past when he touches objects, and Shaine Richards can see what the future might be. She has a dream and he is there, but she doesn't know who he is or why he is in her dream. And it is in her dreams that she can see Toby, alive, but older. The past haunts Shaine because her sister, Maggie, died when her car went into the river, but her toddler son, Toby, was never found. Shaine's mentor from the institute gives her the name and address of the only man who can really teach her how to use her special gift. She is told very little about Mr. Allen, but Shaine goes to Colorado hoping she can convince him to help her. Austin Allen had been a child prodigy and when he could no longer bear the emotional upheaval, he became a recluse and a loner in the mountains of Colorado. Shaine is pleasantly surprised when she meets the young, handsome Mr. Allen and she is attracted to him immediately. Austin is captivated by Shaine, and after listening to her, he reluctantly agrees to help her develop her gift. But he warns her of two things: 1. to be prepared for the worst, for usually, they are almost always dead; and, 2. he does not want a commitment. Working together brings them closer to finding Toby, and closer to each other.
