Lexie Logan thought she could run from God and, like the prophet Jonah experienced a life-storm of epic proportions. As she waits to speak to an advisor, she pillows her head on her arms in the library of Kansas State University in June 2014 and wakes up in the back of a Conestoga wagon in June 1857, four years before the Civil War.

Victoria Silverthorne needs answers
Nightmares of her parents’ deaths fifteen years earlier haunt Victoria’s dreams. During her search for clues, she discovers she has a paternal aunt and uncle in Denver who may be able to shed light on the mystery of her parents. Against the wishes of many, she travels from the safety of her life on the Texas Panhandle to Denver, and then on to the booming mining town of Silverton, Colorado, to find answers.
Antonio “Tony” Morales fears for Victoria’s safety. Travel in the late 1890s is fraught with danger, and he is afraid if Victoria leaves she won’t return.
