Sara works at newly opened Museum. From the onset of their meeting both Gabe and Sara feel strongly attracted to one another. However, bizarre things begin to make their known, such as: the birds, the tall thin stranger, as well as a weird thing Gabe notices about Sara at the restaurant during their first date.
In addition, Gabe and Sara's relationship is complicated because each of them feels trapped. Gabe from his day-to-day duty to care for his sick mother, and Sara feels the guilt of having survived the accident that killed her mother and sister.
The young couple soon discover that Sara is a supernatural being stalked by an evil being. Gabe does battle with this darkness to release Sara, so that they can be together.
What I liked most about the author's story is the depth of emotions involved. Not only does Gabe risk his life for love, but he also has unconditional blind faith in that love. Mr. Vela also reveals not only the abusiveness of Gabe's mother, but his dependency as well.
characters are so engrossing you might forget that their are some supernatural elements in the story. I look forward to reading future novels by Mr. Vela and I recommend this book to any that are into more realistic love stories, angels and small town issues. Keep it comin' Mr. Vela! Keep it comin'!
