Sarah Sutherland didn’t go looking for the adventure that engulfed her. She was a modern woman — a mom and real estate agent — who accepted her routine life until she encountered a fiery Revolutionary War agitator in a vintage home she was selling. Drawn to him physically and emotionally, she slips into her former self, becoming a resister, writer, and soon-to-be-mother. Parallel plots unfold in the course of a year, connecting Sarah’s modern life with events that occurred in 1765. Struggling to reconcile her two realities, she turns to a psychiatrist for help — only to discover that the people around her are not as they seem. Driven to complete a mission in the past, while trying to understand why she was chosen to traverse time, she learns that her life is in danger — in both realms.
Ideal for busy adult, adventure-seekers, and romantics who need a guilt-free escape.
