The summer of 2024, when Solar Cycle 25 reaches its zenith, finds Cy Riverton hiking to Dead Man's Drop Cliff to try to solve the toughest physics problem he has ever faced: How did Eddie Burrows disappear from there during 2024 Spring Break and end up in Pennsylvania in the year 1857? Marty Clark joins Cy. She hopes he will someday be more than just a friend. She plans to leave on a two-month history immersion tour and has no idea just how immersed in history she will shortly become. As a joke, Marty calls Cy's cell number while on the Cliff. From there she finds herself in 1748 western Pennsylvania, then 1758 Maryland where she befriends a Lenni Lenape woman, an English colonial woman, and Hunter, the dog. She tries to decide where she would be happier living if Cy cannot get her home right away, only to find herself being threatened by tribal warriors and British colonists alike. Cy communicates with Marty using text messages as they work to solve the physics involved with her travel back through time. Because law enforcement is already suspicious of him due to his involvement with Eddie, Cy decides to keep Marty's disappearance a secret. Their efforts become more urgent as FBI Special Agent Lee Hardin refuses to “cold case” Eddie's disappearance and pursues Cy relentlessly. Cy and Marty race against time and across eras in an effort to use the power of auroras to become reunited.
About the Author
Robyn Echols has been writing since she was in elementary school. By choice, she spent most of her evening hours in her "dungeon", as her mother called her downstairs bedroom, writing stories, coming upstairs to join her family in front of the television only when her favorite program, "Robin Hood", was playing. She has spent hours learning and teaching family history research topics, and focuses on history from a genealogist's perspective of seeking out the details of everyday life in the past. Several of her family history articles have been published in genealogy magazines. She also draws on her education, including training in Environmental Hazardous Materials Technology and her professional background of being a state-level union steward for a postal union, a position which required investigative, research and technical writing skills. Now Robyn resides with her husband in California and has fun researching and writing the books that she hopes will interest and entertain her readers.
