Years removed from attempting to alter tragedy by slipping through time, what remains of the McCarthy inner circle contends with a new curiosity in Seven Lakes, North Carolina.
The survivors of the Sequoia anomaly befriend a young man with autism who has an inherent ability to sense when others are in danger. Sixteen-year-old Sebastian Kimble is an athletic high school junior who consistently puts himself at risk to help others, and he has no idea from where the impetus comes.
Sebastian begins to immerse himself in this role, incurring injuries, garnering the attention of local hostiles, and unwittingly putting others in immense danger as a result.
With the help of Father Baumann, the intuitive and pragmatic catholic priest from Three Miles of Eden, the friends begin to unravel the unlikely source of Sebastian’s second sight.
