The Visionary is a work of fiction with mild paranormal and religious Christian themes and was penned by author Pamela S. Thibodeaux. Combining a romantic storyline with the concept of mutual healing and recovering from trauma through the power of God’s love, this tale begins with Taylor Forrestier. Taylor has a unique gift as a visionary in the world of design and architecture, but despite her success, there are powerful emotions restraining her from fully progressing in her life. She and her twin brother Trevor share this unspoken trauma, and as Taylor tries to move forward in her life, she must find a way to heal her broken past so that she can achieve her full potential.

Light and inspirational in its spirit for the most part, the dark secrets of the past are not laid out in gory detail in this story of healing and moving on. Rather, the story generally focuses on interpersonal relationships between Taylor and Trevor, their assistant Pam and newcomer Alex who sets the central plot rolling. Readers with a religious background will find a deeper intention to the work as the path of Christ is slowly revealed throughout, and indeed becomes a major element of the novel’s plot. What results is an engaging and pleasant personal drama with some really excellent writing by author Pamela S. Thibodeaux. Overall, however, I’d certainly say that The Visionary will be a rewarding read for those who also enjoy a good personal mystery and healing tale.
