A time-travel tale of abduction and redemption…
In book two of the Before series, when twenty-five-year-old Rebecca Danser hikes a remote trail in California, a spark from an unusual-looking rock gives her the ability to travel through time without altering it.
Her life is a mess due to unresolved feelings of guilt over the long-ago disappearance of her younger sister Sadie when they were both children. Determined to find out who was responsible, Rebecca travels back in time to her six-year-old self and sets herself up to be taken in place of Sadie.
Flowing between past and present, Rebecca pursues the villain who stole her sister, knowing full well that justice for Sadie may come at the cost of her own life.
