What do you do when your dreams are shattered?
Thor Magnusen is clueless. The first time he touched pigskin, he knew football was his life. He never expected a tackle to end his dream. Yet the answer comes when a special family heirloom takes him away from the comforts of 1985 back to the turbulent pre-Civil War days of 1860 and he discovers something more important than a Super Bowl ring.
Willow Elkridge, a freedwoman of color, yearns to be on the frontlines in the growing battle against slavery. The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 puts many in danger. Having lost her biological parents at the hands of slave patrollers, she hates the thought of any child suffering the same. So when her abolitionist surrogate parents forbid her from following her dream to be a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Willow has no choice but to take matters into her own hands. Then Thor, a man from the future, arrives?
What do you do when two worlds collide and love catches you by surprise?
Neither Thor nor Willow knows the answer, but it makes them wonder if love can last forever.
