The past isn't over, it's an opening. The future's not hidden, it's a trap.
If she ever wants to see him again, she'll have to take the risk...
Publishers Weekly Starred Review: "Funny, Romantic & Harrowing!"
After reconnecting with the one-that-got-away -- and then losing him in a pandemic -- Iz struggles to survive alone in a remote mountain cabin. As loneliness and despair set in, she starts taking in abandoned pets -- until an ill-equipped, clean-shaven man knocks on her door and offers her a one-way trip to the past. With humanity teetering on the edge, she sacrifices everything, including her beloved pets, in an attempt to alter the dystopian present -- and see her lover one last time.
She's rushed into a hastily built time machine... ... and awakens on a tropical beach, buck naked -- and suffering from side-effects -- but 20 years younger!
With only hours to live, she must persuade her future lover to fix their relationship and thereby set off a chain of events that will erase the pandemic -- no one is quite sure how.

Turns out, it's not him that needs fixing, it's her -- and it's far too late for that.
Across the infinite expanse of space and time, love endures... (Unfortunately, it's not going to be enough.)
