Witnessing a murder immediately following a plane crash, two of the survivors (a woman and a 5 year old boy) flee into the winter mountains pursued by the killer. The boys family (four generations of men) seek to find and protect them. A clairvoyant mountain woman assists. A great read.
One of my favorite authors and she did a sensational job with this powerful story! The dedication at the beginning of the book (to her late fiance, Bobby) will give you goosebumps and even cause a few tears. Then the book will have you on the edge of your seat at the same time you're reaching for the Kleenex again.
I have to admit, I ordered this book from PBS hesitantly because I have never read any of Dinah McCall's books. I wasn't sure she could keep me interested in the story long enough to finish it. But once I started the book I couldn't put it down, which is really rare for me. The is a must read for anyone who like survivalist/mystery books. McCall really pulls you into the characters lives and leaves you wanting more. I wonder if there is a sequel to this book?
I like all of McCall's books but this one was one of her best. The open affection among four generations of O'Ryan men, the suspense, and the exceptional women they love makes a great story. Hated for it to end.
This book was great for a Sunday read. Enjoyed all the characters and a believable story with romance, suspense, a little sex (skipped over it) hehehehe
Four generations of men who are true hero's, with a woman psychic mixed in....enjoy that part, I sure did.

When a passenger plane goes down in the Appalachians, rescue teams start searching for a missing boy and a woman. Twenty miles away Deborah Sanborn has a vision of two survivors, cold, hurting, and scared. Over the years she has learned to trust her gift and she senses these strangers are in terrible danger. She sees a hunter moving in for the kill.
Dinah McCall, a pseudonyn for Sharon Sala, writes about a woman, a child and a killer survive an airplane crash in the Appalachians. A "seer" Deborah Sanborn has a vision of their plight and with the help of the child's family of men race to help them. Of course, romance between four of the characters adds spice to the plot
Light thriller, good as a brainless beach-read or as break from heavier fare. Includes a plane crash, a murder, a chase, a lovely psychic, child in peril, and not one, but TWO romances. A little sex is thrown into the menu, but nothing that would offend even the most sensitive reader. Don't know that I'd recommend wasting a credit on it, but I'd pick it up in a garage sale for a quarter. Three out of five starts.
It was a moving story with the lady from the mountain able to help the survivors during a blizzard.
The five year old helped with his limited knowledge of survival and were able to keep ahead of the person who didn't want them to tell what they had seen.
This was a great read.I really enjoy reading the Dinah McCall's novels. This has been my sixth book I read from this author and like the others it was hard for me to put down. I enjoyed reading about the O'Ryan men as well as Molly and Deborah.
Compelling story of two lost survivors of a plane crash. A local woman who is also psycic and the family of the survivors team up to locate the lost passengers. Very good story. I couldn't put it down. 5 stars
This was the first, and last book I'll read by this author. At first I thought this book may have been very dated... then I checked the publication date and it is 2007! Where do I start?
The dialogue is beyond cheesy... it's actually cringeworthy. The entire storyline is ridiculously unbelievable. There are attempts at humor that are innapropriate. The insta-love is... uncomfortable. And I like insta-love!! Lastly, there was too much detail in areas that didn't need it, and not enough in parts that really could've used more information.
The idea of the story has merit! The problem was the follow-through. If this author matured in her craft and improved her writing skills... I have a feeling the result would have been much more palatable.
I never met a Sharon Sala/Dinah McCall book I didn't like, and this is no exception. This author always has a variety different plots and warm characters whom I feel like I know by the end of the book. I wish this had been a series with a different book for each of the O'Ryan men. If you are a true Sala fan, grab the box of tissues because this is another tear jerker.

Four generations of O'Ryan men have gathered at the crash site, ready to search for the missing boy, Johnny O'Ryan. His forty five year old grandfather Mike O'Ryan isn't sure what to make of Deborah, but with the snow coming down, she's all they've got to lead them torough the mountains. Because not only are they racing against time and the elements...they're up against a killer desperate to silence his only living witnesses to murder.
