After waking from a nightmare, Amanda Costa Standford receives a phone call from the Stockton Police Department.
She realizes then that her dream really happened.
Detective Ramon advises her to come to the police station, where Amanda meets her three-year-old grandson, Sam, for the first time.
Amanda is given custody of Sam and must not only ease him out of his trauma, but explain the family secret of clairvoyance – while going through the battles of showing him how to cope with it – and guard it. She has the strength, but doubts her stamina over the long haul. Amanda must convince her grandson that he is not evil and that his clairvoyance is a part of him to use as a guide in helping others.
As for Sam, he doubts his abilities and wants to forget he has such a gift. To him, it’s a burden too great to bear.
Fifteen years later, on the night of his high school winter formal, Sam runs into a gang in the parking lot. His doubts about his abilities keep him from seeing and believing in himself, landing Sam in the emergency room, where he lays near death.
Amanda needs to show Sam his true calling before it’s too late. And Sam must accept who he really is before he makes the biggest mistake of his life.
The ultimate lesson: “Time – the perfect thief, traveling unnoticed.”
