Perfect Nightmare by Norman Stanton
It would be amazing if people had an advance warning of catastrophes that happen daily in which millions of persons receive life changing injuries, lossed loved ones or are killed. What would you do if someone told you they dreamed your town was going to be destroyed? What would you do if you were the person having these dreams? Would you try to alarm everyone of impending danger or would you be to afraid that no one would believe?
Arnold and Dee are little more than strangers when they have a shared dreams of disastrous events that will result in the deaths of thousands of people. They leave London and travel to the United States to attempt to warn as many people as they can to help minimize the loss of lives.
A mining town, in Virginia, is their first stop. They are attempting to convince the residents that something horrible is going to happen at the mine. Arnold and Dee are joined my Amos, who is working as a miner. Amos is a Native American, who has accurately dreamed of future occurs most of his life. He has inherited this ability from his grandfather. Recently he has had the same dreams of future devastation that has plagued Arnold and Dee.
What the three discover is that they have a small influence over nature that can help control the end results of the things they have dreamed. It is wonderful what can be prevented with just a little chance in the course or time of an event. Their dreams and abilities help them make many strong and lasting friendships and relationships along the course of their adventures. Some of these people have great wealth and power, which comes in handy when they need help.
The trio is very resourceful and save many people along the way. They team up with members of several Indian tribes to plan for a volcano eruption they know is going to happen within a few weeks. They know what and where this is going to happen. They know the number of people it will be affected. What they don’t know is the exact time.
I enjoyed this book, when the author described the scenic views if felt as if I was there. It really made me want to see these sites myself. If you are a fan of prophecies, disaster planning, and people banding together in times of crisis, this is the book for you.
