Overview

To save the USA, Emma and Ethan Callan-Wright, decide that a little known historical figure, Franklin Roosevelt, should be historically resuscitated, or as they put it..."X-oomed". The Twins, twenty-one-year-old Emma and Ethan, and their friends are citizens of the 2032 American police state. They lead a comfortable, but extremely controlled life in a sleepy East Coast college town called Mystic Heights. Other than their excursions using the Time Travelle (a time machine invented by Dr. Currant), they have never ventured outside of their local environment. Their entire source of news and information is that provided by the National Television Network and the rumor-mill of friends, relatives and acquaintances. Trained by their criminologist father, they speak softly and keep their opinions close.

At age seventeen, they time-traveled to the year 1963 to save the life of JFK. They got a taste of the spirit of the former "Free" USA. Their trip confirmed their conclusion that there was more to life than obeying the dictates of MOM, as the national government is derisively called. They want to kick the butt of history and open new possibilities for everyone living in America 2032.

Franklin Roosevelt is their ticket to freedom-get him elected and maybe the future will improve.

It's a simple idea. If it works...if they are successful...they hope for a sea change in the political landscape of the country. They hope the fat cats can be tamed by the powerful personality of FDR. They hope the people of the 1930s will sense and seize their opportunity. They hope that Roosevelt will stand up for the other 99%. This may be naive dreaming, but such dreams are common in climates of social repression. Unlike everyone else in 2032 America, the Time Travel Twins have the ability to turn their wild dreams into reality. But their work is dangerous, difficult and most of all experimental. Manipulating time and events is an art to be discovered through the process of trial, error and success. The challenges of reviving FDR and keeping him alive through 1932, 1933 and 1934 will tax the skills and strengths of Ethan, Emma, their friend Zak and the outrageous and mysterious Dr. Currant.
