Frank Peretti is one of my favorite authors, and he didn’t disappoint with “Illusion.”

The story is about Dane Collins, a retired magician who loses his wife of forty years in a horrendous car accident.  He’s struggling with his grief when he encounters Eloise Kramer, a budding new magician who shares an uncanny resemblance to his late wife, Mandy.  Dane takes Eloise under his wing and teaches her what he knows.

What Dane doesn’t know is Eloise might be crazy.  She escaped from a hospital, and has been hiding out ever since.  Her one fear is that she’ll be tracked down and dragged back to the hospital.

There’s so much more I want to tell you about this awesome book, but I don’t want to spoil anything for you.

Put simply, I couldn’t put this book down.  I had to find out what was really going on, and how everything would turn out.  I cared deeply for Dane and Eloise.  They were simply lovely people whom I bonded with quickly.  When it looked like things were not going to end well, I was afraid to read the book in public.  I was sure I would burst into tears if anything bad happened to either Dane or Eloise.  I loved them that much!

There is only one bad thing about this book:  It doesn’t belong to me.  I have to return it to the library …


I've been a Christian since 1991. I enjoy Beth Moore Bible studies and books about using your gift for God. I've been writing since high school. It is what I came to this earth to do! I also love reading books. I'm never without one! It is my wish to inspire others through my writing.
