Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
It is 1981, a virulent flu has swept through America, and Polly and Frank are stranded in Texas by accident. Frank gets sick. Within days, he is dying, and Polly will do anything to save him. The TimeRaiser corporation has invented time travel, and they will pay for the life-saving treatment Frank needs - if Polly makes a one-way trip, twelve years into the future, to work for them. She immediately signs on, and she and Frank promise to meet by the seashore in Galveston in 1993, to restart their lives together. But when Polly is re-routed an extra five years into the future to 1998, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a changed and divided America, Polly must navigate a terrifying new world. Everything - the landscape, how she's seen, how people live - has changed, and she realizes with increasing fear that she may no longer hold the rights she once took for granted. As the danger mounts and her search demands unthinkable sacrifice, Polly has to rely solely on herself to find Frank, to discover if he is still alive, and to see if their love has endured.
