Summary: Adri's, Catherine's, and Lenore's lives are intertwined but not in the way that one would think. Adri lives in 2065 Kansas, Catherine lives in 1930s Kansas, and Lenore lives in England in 1919. As Adri is preparing to go to Mars, she stays with her cousin in Kansas, where the training takes place. Upon settling in, she comes across letters written from Lenore to Beth. Through journals and, later, letters, Catherine narrates her own story of being in Kansas during the Dust Bowl.
Kansas, 2065 Adri hsa secured a slot as a Colonist - one of the lucky few 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 Amid the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine fantasizes about her family's firsthand, and 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 finally separate illusion from reality and look for the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most. England, 1919 In the recovery following the First World War, Lenore struggles 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 span thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri's fates are entwined in ways both heartbreaking and hopeful. In Jodi Lynn Anderson's signature haunting, lyrical prose, human connections spark spellbindingly to life, and a bright light shines on the small but crucial moments that determine one's fate. -- from dust jacket.
