“… by the end, I was getting a bicep workout from all the fistpumps…” ForeverYoungAdult
DESCRIPTION: A boy from the past. A girl from the future. Their love could be forever, but their time is running out...
Madeline falls in love with Samuel when she accidentally time travels hundreds of years into the past to a war between the colonists and Native Americans. Their relationship is forbidden. If discovered they could be brutally punished.
But Madeline’s traveled to the past not only to fall in love, but also to claim her birth right as a Messenger, a soul who can slip through time’s fabric, delivering messages that change one life, or save many. Deadly Hunters, dark-souled time travelers, crave her powers and seek to seduce or kill her.
Can Madeline find her way back to the future in time to save herself and Samuel?
“I was a Messenger: I kept the memory of all our encounters, our lives, like a locket that brushes the skin and bones covering my heart. But Samuel was a Healer: he didn’t time travel. His kind lived, died, re-incarnated and he didn’t retain memories from his past lives. Every year I landed in required starting our relationship over: from ashes, from scrap….Every place I journeyed had beauty as well as darkness; all my time-travels were bittersweet.” ~ Madeline.
