Book Review Illusion

by | Mar 31, 2012 | Christian Living

Frank Peretti weaves an ingenious tale of loss and newfound joy with Illusion. Not since The Visitation have readers had such a thrilling journey of mystery and suspense. The story is set in beautiful Coeur D’Alene, Idaho—secluded from the rest of the world, allowing the characters even further secrecy. The plot follows the life of a man—Dane Collins—after the tragic death of his wife, Mandy. The mystery begins when Dane meets a young woman who has an uncanny similarity to his deceased wife. Despite the impossibility that the young woman could be anyone other than a complete stranger, Dane begins to notice personality quirks that make him wonder if he’s going crazy and begins to consider the possibility that it is more than just a coincidence.

Illusion gives the reader a chance to wonder “What if…?” What if death isn’t the end here on earth? What if our idea of time and space is wrong? What if the mercies of God can reach beyond our wildest expectations? Peretti’s gifts as a story-teller shine brightly in this stunning account of one man’s deep despair, shattered by a miracle so great it could only be classified as divine.

With the lines blurred between illusion and reality, Frank Peretti will leave his readers guessing till the end and astounded at the conclusion. It is the perfect display of how God can take a tragedy and make a miracle out of it. Illusion is a must read for fiction lovers of all ages.
