A typical day at the rehabilitation center turns into a nightmare for Emma Grady when her favorite physical therapy patient vanishes in front of her, along with several colleagues. Fear turns to chaos as Emma begins the frantic race from Brooklyn to Queens, anxious to discover if her boyfriend is safe. Subways are closed, graves are open, and countless people have inexplicably disappeared. Mayhem erupts as terror grips the residents of New York City. Was this a terrorist attack? An alien abduction? Or has evil been unleashed? What else could make so many vanish in a moment? And not just in New York, but all over the globe. With so many people missing, Emma wonders if this is the predicted end of the world and begins a desperate search to discover the answers. This unique book takes the reader on a riveting journey from New York City to Israel in the form of a page-turning novel and in the final chapters, Donna leads us into the Bible, where we learn that God has made known "the end from the beginning." Through Scripture, we understand that things aren't spiraling downward but are actually looking up. The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Shoes now explores a future world facing its final days in The Time of Jacob's Trouble. Donna VanLiere weaves end-times prophecies into the lives of Emma and her friends as they struggle to survive and come face-to-face with the chilling truth.
