    Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for forty years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the nineteen-year-old she was in 1970. Distraught and disoriented in what to her is the future, she is confined to a mental ward until she discovers a magical ability to pass invisibly through time and space to escape. Alone in a strange world, she uses her mysterious powers to eke out a living, performing magic on the streets and in a quaint coffee shop.

    Hoping to discover an exciting new talent, Dane ventures into the coffee shop and is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot explain. But more than anything, he is emotionally devastated by this teenager who has never met him, doesn’t know him, is certainly not in love with him, but is in every respect identical to the young beauty he first met and married some forty years earlier.

    They begin a furtive relationship as mentor and protégée, but even as Dane tries to sort out who she really is and she tries to understand why she is drawn to him, they are watched by secretive interests who not only possess the answers to Mandy’s powers and misplacement in time but also the roguish ability to decide what will become of her.

    Frank Peretti has crafted a rich, rewarding story of love and life, loss and restoration, full of twists and mystery. Exceptionally well written, Illusion will soon prove another Peretti classic.

    7. Brandon says:

      This book was just simply amazing! I could not put it down (except to sleep). I had no idea it was being released until I saw it on the table @ Costco. I read the inside cover, read the first few pages and then I was hooked. The richness of the characters personalities, their emotions, their struggles……it grabbed me and would not let go! I would (and have) recommend(ed) this book to everyone. Thank you Mr. Peretti for another fantastic ride!

        Wow, thanks so much, Brandon!

      • Mark says:

        Totally agree. I grew up in the Spokane Valley (Greenacres) and took animals and other stuff to the Spokane Interstate Fair. My dad spent most of his life in Bonners Ferry so reading about this area in your book sir is great. About 1/3 of the way through it …. LOVE IT!!

      Hi Frank,
      I am not typically a reader. A short blurb and lots of pictures, that’s me.
      But, when i was introduced to your books, I could actually see what was
      I was like Brandon, i couldn’t put the book down. I would read at traffic
      lights. GOD has given you a great gift and I thank you for sharing it
      with us.

      I don’t care….if its Peretti, I’m getting it any which way I can. I’ve been addicted since This Present Darkness. Prophet, however was the last book I’ve read…..and THAT was a while ago. So, at first opportunity, I’ll read these chapters….and be teased until…..and be pleased with this work, and leave myoverglowing assessment in the right spot.
