Synopses & Reviews
Annie Lockwood is testing Time. Shes traveled through it before, but always at Times bidding. Now she is asking Time to take her to the year 1899, when Strat is in Cairo. But Time doesnt like to be tested. In what feels like a cruel joke, Annie is transported to ancient Egypt, thousands of years before Strat was born to a world far removed from the one she knows. Meanwhile, in 1899, Strat is photographing the same pyramids that Annie walks among. But while Strat eagerly awaits Annies arrival, another visitor arrives: his father, Hiram Stratton, Sr., has come to Egypt to collect his son.
Powerless, Annie and Strat both look to Time. Can its force, which brought them together once, help them find each other again?
From the Hardcover edition.
The romantic time-travel series by the popular Caroline Cooney ("Both Sides of Time, Out of Time, Prisoner of Time") continues with this fourth volume, in which the lovers, Annie and Strat, are again out of sync through the centuries.
