Description

David Winkler dreams things before they happen-a man carrying a hatbox will be hit by a bus; he will fall in love with a woman in the supermarket. Both do come true-the latter happens when the two of them are on a flight to Cleveland. Winkler then dreams their daughter Grace will drown while he's trying to save her from a flood. To keep this from happening, he flees. Winkler moves to a Caribbean island and remains there for 25 years. Not until he dreams of saving an island girl from drowning does he embark on a journey to find his lost wife and daughter.

Professional reviews

"Dr. David Winkler is studying the intricately connected natural patterns of water and snowflakes. He dreams that his infant daughter will die in a flood as he tries to save her. Terrified and guilty, he runs away to prevent this happening. For 25 years he wanders like Odysseus over seas and across continents. Returning at last, he finds that the end of his odyssey has been guided both by the gods and a kind of grace. Henry Strozier's reading lends energy and strength to Doerr's subtle depictions and poetic text. His voice struts manfully through Winkler's painful hesitations; it is bold yet tentative, sensitive both to the rich poetry and scientific preciseness of Doerr's text. P.E.F.
