Waking in Time (coming from Switch Press, March 1, 2017) is a page-turning story full of romance, twists and delightful details about campus life then and now.
Still mourning the loss of her beloved grandmother and shaken by the mysterious request to “find the baby,” Abbi has just arrived at UW Madison for her freshman year. But on her second day, she wakes up to a different world: 1983. That is just the first stop on Abbi’s journey backward through time. Will is a charming college freshman from 1927 who travels forward through time. When Abbi and Will meet in the middle, love adds another complication to their lives. Communicating across time through a buried time capsule, they try to decode the mystery of their travel, find the lost baby, and plead with their champion, a kindly physics professor, to help them find each other again … even though the professor gets younger each time Abbi meets him.
YA author Liz Reinhardt says:
“Waking in Time is a gorgeous, layered story about finding family, love, and the place you truly belong, with a brilliant twist of magic. Abbi’s journey from slightly lost millennial freshman to confident young woman takes her through a buzzing array of incredible times and encounters. Her brushes with the past are littered with realistic details that lend an air of credibility to the fantastical time-travel element. Waking in Time is a beautiful time-travel story with a gorgeous romance that unfolds across decades. It is, at its heart, a story about finding the courage to pursue love in the face of impossible odds.”
