With Hurricane Claudia barreling down to make landfall in Stuart, Florida, Tom Kane and his family hunker down inside their well-shuttered house. But this is no minor hurricane, this is a Category 5 storm, a storm that many meteorologists believe will exceed the devastation of Hurricane Andrew that struck when Tom Kane was a boy. Bracing for the worst, Tom goes outside as the eye of the storm passes over and the winds cease. An examination of the neighborhood shows little destruction but Tom and his neighbors hear the roar of the ocean, which had been six miles away. Suddenly, the ocean is only a few hundred yards from the neighborhood as the neighbors discover that the city of Stuart is gone and their neighborhood appears to be all that is left. The second half of the storm never occurs, and as night falls, young Tad Kane points out that the night sky is different, and that the familiar constellations are no longer where they should be. Only then do they begin to realize that their neighborhood has been sent somewhere in time. But is it the past or is it the future?
The neighbors are forced to work together to survive and the neighborhood splits into two factions. The first group believes that God has intervened to save them, while the second group believes there is a scientific reason for their circumstances. But the real answer is much more complicated.
Eye is the story of ordinary people trying to adapt to extraordinary circumstances. read more
