Sorry.  I wrote that the author was Sydney Wallace when in fact his name was Sydney Watson.  I keep getting his name confused.

 

I found the book for free on "Open Library" so it can be read online.  Just Google Open Library and then put In the Twinkling of an Eye in your title search once you have arrived at the Open Library website.

 

I found it interesting.  Like I said the novel isn't that good.  Watson was not a great writer and his depiction of some Americans living in the south was stereotypical.  The value lies in his depiction of the Jewish Zionist connection to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy and the pretrib rapture which you get explained about half way through.

 

I found especially interesting that so long ago people could already recognize the signs for Jesus' return!  Perhaps Watson believed he would be alive to see it.  He would be staggered to see the signs that we see now.
