Kansas, 2065 Adri has been handpicked to live on Mars. But weeks before Launch, she discovers the journal of a girl who lived in her house over a hundred years ago, and is immediately drawn into the mystery surrounding her fate. While Adri knows she must focus on the mission ahead, she becomes captivated by a life that’s been lost in time…and how it might be inextricably tied to her own.

Oklahoma, 1934 Amidst the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine longs for the immortality promised by a professor at a traveling show called The Electric. But as her family’s situation becomes more dire -- and the suffocating dust threatens her sister’s life -- Catherine must find the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most.

England, 1919 In the recovery following World War One, Lenore tries to come to terms with her grief for her brother, a fallen British soldier, and plans to sail to America in pursuit of a childhood friend. But even if she makes it that far, will her friend be the person she remembers, and the one who can bring her back to herself?

While their stories spans thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri’s fates are entwined in ways both heartbreaking and hopeful.

WHY I'M WAITING:  This sounds like a mix of historical fiction with a tad of science fiction and maybe even time traveling thrown in.  In fact, I think the synopsis just left me out and out curious so that's the main reason I'm looking forward to this one.



  1. I agree, this sounds very strange and yet I'm dying of curiosity to see how she ties all these people together. I think I've already added this to Goodreads, but I'd better check!

  2. Oo this sounds great!! I don't think I've heard of it yet. Great pick!

  3. What an interesting and unusual combination of times, this is! Great pick Barb, this sounds so original.

  4. This sounds like a really interesting book! This is the first time that I have heard of it but I will have to keep my eye out for it.

  5. Something about the synopsis to this reminds me a lot of Cloud Atlas. It definitely sounds interesting!
