USAF maintenance officer, Shawna Whitney is haunted by recurring and often frightening images. Over a period of 33 years, her life is impacted by strange and unexplainable events and by what appear to be glimpses into the future. Through the years, these intermittent "dreams" lead her to question her sanity and eventually to wonder if her concept of time is being challenged by forces beyond her control. Through the help of a friend and lover, she slowly begins to accept her fate and unravel the mystery when her future becomes her present.
"Echo of a Distant Planet" succeeds in large part because Lutz' main characters come across as normal human beings, living normal lives--"normal" within the constraints of military rules, culture and customs. The reader is slowly, but inevitably drawn into Shawna's life--and those around her--by measured narration, thorough character development, and level-headed story-telling.
This book is recommended for both the Sci-Fi enthusiast as well as anyone wanting to know more about the USAF, its flyers and maintainers and the venerable C-130 Hercules.
