Mel Noblett is a reporter. She is in Europe to interview a reluctant
source, who decides he doesn’t want to talk about his employer producing and
adding pollutants to honey. Instead, she
finds Daniel at a conference where he criticizes agro-chemical plants for
producing insecticides that kill bees.
Mel, too, has a talent. She is an empath and can feel
the emotions of those around her. She is
unique in that she can also project her emotions onto others.
Mel feels Daniel’s gentle strength. Daniel regards Mel as a sprite, who brings
light and laughter with her. But Daniel is
torn apart when he sees Mel’s possible futures.
However, as his spirit guide, Grandma Lily, tells him nothing is
fixed. Unless he can find a way to
control his visions and his physical reactions to them, Daniel feels that he
and Mel can have no future together. At
the same time, they must find a way to deal with their unique abilities while
dodging assassins who are after Mel.
Ms Cooper deals with current problems in her books,
such as genetic alteration of crops and bee colony collapse while being quite
lyrical in her descriptions of Florence and Woodruff Mountain. Of course, she
is best when dealing with love in its many aspects.
For those who love travel and adore being in love, I
can recommend this book.
