A twist of time carried them into each other's arms . . . but just as suddenly, a sad turn of fate swept them apart. On a New England Christmas morning, Jessica, with their infant son in her arms, crosses the bedroom to greet Christopher. But before she has a chance to reach him, his image seems to fade, and his welcoming smile becomes a look of alarm. He reaches out his hand to her. She thinks she has grasped it. Yet, instead, she s left alone in a small and very cold nineteenth century cabin with their child . . . while Christopher finds himself in a New York City rooming house without his wife and son. Agonized by memories of their magical time together, each is forced to carry on Jessica as a servant in a wealthy farm household while Christopher adjusts to finding a career in early nineteenth century New York. Will the love they shared remain only a memory, or will fate allow their paths to cross again? Is their love strong enough to conquer the ultimate enemy time?
