Synopsis

Sophie Irving loves history but working as a tour guide at Nebraska’s first homestead is just as boring as it sounds. One day, an unassuming rainstorm begins a chain of encounters with people from the past. Clues about the homestead’s Underground Railroad secrets and the family that lived there are revealed, but many questions are left unanswered. A devastating event leads Sophie to leave the museum only to return years later to find the mysteries − and instances of time travel − stronger than before. Museum co-worker Talan Perkins and his friend Walter Owens accompany her in a search that lands them in a posse of vigilante abolitionists and a dangerous plot to rescue a group of slaves from an 1857 auction. All the while Sophie finds herself consumed by the enigmatic draw of a stranger that transcends life and death with one simple date on a gravestone: 19 years 10 months 24 days. As the elements piece together Sophie learns that history, war, and meaningful relationships are not as out of reach as she had always believed.
