Having a friend in the quantum physics field makes Anya Littlefeather slightly more receptive to Cody Bell's claim that his horse tossed him from 1898 into her backyard of 2013. He certainly seems to be a handsome, honest-to-God - albeit prejudiced - cowboy who is utterly surprised by the established neighborhood where he claims his family farm just stood. He's a drifter, and Anya has too many abandonment issues with men to even consider dating someone who already breaks two of her four relationship requirements. Relieved of relationship pressure, Anya feels free to help Cody as one human to another.
Cody had been racing home with medicine to save his niece's life when his horse tossed him into this magic place. This Indian squaw confuses him, for she doesn't act or dress the way his grandfather spoke of them during the Indian/Settler Wars - she's courteous, helpful, and respects him as a man. Her offer to help get him home seems genuine, and he fears every day spent in this amazing land jeopardizes the life of his young niece.
As the time draws near for the next portal to open, Cody must decide whether to save the life of the last of his family, or stay and start a new one. Anya has to either add one more abandonment issue to her list, or ask Cody to let his niece perish and stay with her forever. Can true love really be timeless?
