On a summer afternoon in 1998, Lizzie Chetwyrd embarks on a journey that will change her life, and the world, forever. Lizzie’s journeys begin through a fold in time—to 1842 where she befriends the visionaries Emerson and Thoreau who soon suspect that she is more than a visiting relative. Emerson’s writing begin to reflect Lizzie's experience and his growing belief that—"Time and space are just inverse measures of the force of the soul. A man is capable of abolishing them both. The spirit sports with time."
