California Angelby Nancy Taylor Rosenberg
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 has somehow 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.
Toy's incredible journey into the realms of magic and divine intervention climaxes in a breathtaking courtroom trial where the laws of man come in riveting conflict with far higher laws, and ordinary reason comes face to face with extraordinary revelation. While Nancy Taylor Rosenberg offers here the same gripping level of drama and suspense for which she is famous, she also opens the door to a wondrous world where the spirit can triumphantly transcend the flesh. In Toy Johnson, she has crated a heroine who will do more than make you believe in angels-she will make you believe in human beings.
