Maggie inherited a gift that allows her to live three separate lives in 1861, 1941, and 2001. Each night, she goes to sleep in one time period and wakes up in another. Until she turns twenty-one, when she will have to forfeit two of those lives forever. In 1861, Maggie is the daughter of a senator at the outbreak of the Civil War. In 1941, she is a nurse, grappling with her knowledge of the future when she joins a hospital ship going to Pearl Harbor. And in 2001, she's a brilliant young medical student. A man tugs at her heart in each era, only complicating the impossible decision she must make. With so much on the line, how can Maggie choose just one life to keep?
