Toy Johnson believes she is a good teacher, a devoted wife, and a decent person. So how can it be possible that she has been arrested as a child stealer and charged with murder? And she is helpless to defend herself with her version of events, because it defies all the rules of logic. Childless and unfulfilled in her marriage, Toy had been desperate to find hope for the future, and at last her life had meaning with her 'dreams', where she was able to save lives and heal children. But now the trial forces those around her - those who love her and those whose lives she has saved - to judge whether or not the seemingly impossible can in fact be real ...

Toy has these near death dream like experiences where she helps children in trouble. The children she helps call her their guardian angel. But Toy is a real live person, and how can she really get to all these children in trouble when she doesn't know them or even know where they're located. This was a very strange story. I found it interesting but odd.
Publishers Weekly, 1995-11-06 A departure for thriller writer Rosenberg, this is a warmhearted story of divine intervention and angelic miracles in the lives of troubled children. (Dec.)
Publishers Weekly, 1994-11-28 In a surprising departure from her bestselling legal thrillers (Mitigating Circumstances, etc.), Rosenberg tells a warmhearted story of divine intervention and angelic miracles. Protagonist Toy Johnson is a charismatic teacher who insists on thinking positively about the futures of the underprivileged children in her inner-city school in Santa Ana, Calif. Though Toy is beautiful (she has ``flaming red hair''; her skin is ``as translucent as the finest silk'') and wealthy, she is unhappy: she has been unable to conceive, and her surgeon husband does not sympathize with her need to donate money to the needy families of her young charges. Idealistic Toy craves ``magic, miracles, overnight solutions.'' She has had this sense of mission since the day she suffered cardiac arrest, when she had a vision in which she helped an autistic boy. Now, having decided that she needs some space to consider a separation from her husband, Toy goes to New York, where she suffers recurrences of cardiac arrest, each time having vivid dreams of saving children from grave danger. Yet these children turn out to be real, and mounting evidence indicates that her lifesaving actions may occur during out-of-body astral projections. Soon Toy understands that she is an angel, deputized on missions of mercy. Rosenberg's fervid, exalted prose often soars to melodramatic heights, and her basic premise requires the same kind of belief that draws readers to The Celestine Prophecy. She eschews heavy-handed sermonizing, however, and intriguing plot twists keep the narrative moving briskly. Literary Guild main selection; audio rights to Penguin Highbridge; author tour. (Jan.)
