Publisher Comments:

Book One of a Trilogy: What if you have half a second to stop the extinction of the human race? What if that pivotal day to save humanity depends on you saving your own life? Catherine's life and humanity's continued existence depend on her ability and willingness to believe in an altered, future timeline with a colony of Earth inhabitants. It couldn't come at a worse time. Catherine's father dies unexpectedly. The pressure of her research and advocacy work adds dead weight to her life's precarious tipping points. Catherine's losing battles includes sleep deprivation. Sleep eludes her, because when it does come, she finds herself repeatedly dreaming about standing on the same high plateau with her greyhound dog, Addy, and a stranger (Keitha) and her dog (Murphey) surrounded by plants and animals and insects, and then poof! The living landscape transforms into ash. Catherine does not suspect that she is the lynch pin, but she is the one who must stop the Machiavellians from shifting Earth's future timeline, resulting in the colony's extinction. But, because of her own beliefs in the Hau de no sau nee (Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy) principal that we have to consider the effect decisions have on descendants seven generations into the future, Catherine pauses and reaches back into her own past generations until her ancestor, Shi Ma, from the Lipan Indian tribe, the one who passed on her family's oral history, reminds her that she's connected to something beyond the people and place of her time, her now. Catherine puts this belief to the ultimate test when she learns that the event is her own death. In order to stop it, she must walk directly into its path.
