About the Book
A young adult novel from Vinspire Publishing
Hovering just below the surface of Shilo Giannelli’s average existence lays an amazing spiritual power. Late one night, her world erupts with the revelation that, like her great-grandmother, she has The Gift. But the power to heal isn’t something she can share with the soccer team, her genius little sister, or her boyfriend, Kenji.
Deep beneath Misty Morning’s tough façade is a lifetime of abandonment, foster homes and broken dreams. When her two-year-old son is abused by her boyfriend, her fragile world shatters…until Shilo prays for Tyler and he is healed, leaving Misty grateful but incredibly curious.
Shilo doesn’t know why she was chosen or how she’ll keep The Gift a secret, but she’ll do whatever it takes to fulfill her God-given destiny. She doesn’t know that “whatever it takes” will lead to a shattered heart, impossible decisions, and life-threatening situations beyond anything she imagined.
The journey Misty and Shilo take together unites them as friends, but invites danger into their lives. And it will take a miracle for these unlikely friends to elude a gang bent on revenge, keep The Gift a secret, trust God in extraordinary circumstances, and hold on to the people they love.
