Jack Stenhouse is sworn-in as the new President of United States. The following day, January 21, 2017, something dramatic occurred. When it becomes apparent that it is more sinister than earlier thought to be, the new President Stenhouse's enemies, detractors, critics, and political opponents moved heaven and earth trying to make the connection between the two things, but they couldn't make it stick.
Baffling scientists and world leaders, "the Rift" as USA Today called it, appears. It is a gap in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a fog-drenched trench. What is particularly of significance is that the Rift appears to be a dividing line, and on one side of the line it's 1943. It's a fault- line, a line of demarcation. The line runs above the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, an underwater mountain range in the Atlantic caused by the shifting of tectonic plates on the ocean floor. But that still wouldn't explain why it's 1943 in Europe.
The Rift: A Novel by Larry W. Phillips is a war and military fiction that explores an alternate history with different threads focusing on the points of views of different participants. The Rift resulted in World War II being fought in 2017, with modern weaponry and Hitler playing an important role. It is a psychological portrait which will absorb and immerse readers into an unlikely story. Though a war and military fiction, it is not an action-packed adventure story.
