secrets that will save or destroy those around her . . .
When soon-to-be mother Charlotte “Charlie” Cates begins to
have recurring dreams about harm coming to her unborn

anxious mom-to-be. They are the result of her mysterious
gift. But before she can decipher what these dreams might

who speaks to Charlie in her dreams and was present on the
