Mel Taylor has to deal with some strange challenges—like the inconvenience of setting off sparks when he comes within five feet of modern electronics, the result of being a time-traveling veteran of World War II. He’s doing his best to settle into a new life in a new time, but he can’t escape his complicated past, no matter how much he wants to, especially after surviving an explosive confrontation among the Iowa cornfields the previous summer.
He’s got home construction problems, missing cemeteries, angry neighbors, evangelical preachers, malfunctioning locks, an attacking young woman, car crashes and new acquaintances to deal with. He also has to find the strength to say his final farewells to lost friends.
For too long Mel’s life has been complicated by secrets. And like all secrets, his have a way of bubbling to the surface—especially when he has the sapphire staff, an instrument of God’s will, hidden in his basement. He’s been asked to uncover the location of a weeping angel statue, and what he discovers will yield an unexpected connection to his past—and the woman he once loved. He might even reveal how he ended up in the future and what role Dr. Eunholder’s device played in his life.
