Publisher's Summary

On April ninth, thousands of people wake from the same dream, visits from angels instructing them to build a biblical ark in their front yards or the town square or little league field - anywhere - to prepare for the worst natural disaster to strike the world since the days of Noah. A widowed California high school teacher risks everything to build a boat in the 60 days she is given. A homeless self-proclaimed prophet of God preaches across Boston's waterfront, unaware that he is not alone in his visions. A young priest is torn between the signs around him and the skepticism of his church. In the end only 30 people may board each boat. As the world slowly comes to grips with events unfolding around them, they must weigh their own faith in the exceptional and identical visions of so many people. The skies are clear, without a hint of rain. But if the dreams are true, something terrible is looming on the horizon.

Beautiful Characters. Really challenging theme.

What if God asked you to do the impossible?
What if you did absolutely everything right, but still never got the reward you were hoping for in life? Where would your faith be then?
For me, one of the strongest challenges Daniel G. Keohane brings to light in this book is whether or not we truly do what is right because it's right, or do we always have in the back of our minds the thought that surely we will get rewarded for this somehow. But what if our sacrifices in life, only lead us to opportunities to sacrifice even more? Will we still do what is right?

I love the characters developed in this story. People from so many cultures and backgrounds, each struggling with their own messed up lives. Daniel G. Keohane does a beautiful job of taking us inside their struggles to see the heart of the person.

Caroline Miller captured well the tone, emotions and attitudes of the hugely varying characters.

I feel like I've been on an really emotional journey, yet I'm somewhat sad to leave it behind and move on.
