Overview

Summary Jett, an orphaned teenager from the 1980s mysteriously travels through time to the 1920s Jazz Age in this sweetly concocted saga packed with love, friendship, adventure, history, and romance. Although this is the story of Jett's life, it is also the story of a generation as seen through the many lives that become a part of her story.

Overview Ronald Reagan is president and Denver is reeling from the 1970s Oil Boom when sixteen-year-old Jett finds work making confections for Watson's Candies. Hiding from Social Services and a diligent detective, the young woman is pleasantly surprised to learn her new job includes room and board. The elderly couple running the store offers her the home she'd never known but when tragedy strikes, the hard-as-nails orphan wakes up in the psychiatric ward in a strangely altered world. Watson's candy store appears to be the only thing that hasn't changed and Jett is sure it holds the key to finding her way home. As in the life she left behind, she is pursued by the authorities. Having been shuffled from one foster home to another, Jett is no stranger to uncomfortable situations but in this new world she must be careful of her every move or risk being locked away forever.
