One leap brings the pair to 1863, and the author viscerally portrays the magnitude of suffering in the rural South during the Civil War. The surprise ending is pleasant, although it will require readers to willingly suspend their disbelief. An often delightful fantasy that will stick with readers long after they turn the last page.

Synopsis

"An often delightful fantasy that will stick with readers long after they turn the last page."

-- Kirkus Reviews

Daydreaming is a pleasant diversion for Makenna until Grandmother butts into family business one too many times, and the daydreams become eerily prophetic. When adversity comes, she blames herself and flees to the companionship of her precious Pa and horses. Weighed down by old wounds, she is ripe for cosmic picking, flung into other times. Gabriel, an English long hunter, helps her survive in the unsettled woodland, getting caught as well in the strange turn of events. Adding to the confusion, she wants to change history while he presses on for his land claim. Then, the persuasive Joseph shows up reminding her of someone who caused those olds wounds and is now creating new ones.

How can she accomplish anything with the ugliness of her dreams now affecting these two men? Will leaving her beloved Tennessee for New York City save them and heal resentments? Will she ever see her Pa again?
