Fourteen-year-old Adya Jordan swears that before her head injury she was a forty-year-old mother of six. Is she going crazy, or did she really live through an entirely different life? 1985 is nothing like she remembers, although her first day of high school certainly is! A typical girl with atypical genes, Adya tries to recapture her old life, hiding her growing conviction that she has done this before. Accidentally discovering the secretive Three Eleven Corporation might know more about her situation than she does, she is convinced the twenty-eight men heading up the company are responsible for the changes in her world. Adya finds her way into their ranks, journeying to the tropical island headquarters to begin her twenty-week orientation. Every third chapter, diary entries of scientist Nicholas Weaver are written from the future, the last survivor of the human race. He never quite tells readers all the details but the journal entries allude to a global disaster where one of Adya's children offers the last hope of survival. A maudlin but affable type, he is responsible for sending Adya back in time, doing it for the love of a woman. Over and over again for more than ten lifetimes - now that's love. The Three Eleven Company controls the development and distribution of Twenty-first Century technology brought with them from the future. Charged with the task of preparing the world for the impending disaster, each member of the team uses his scientific background to create a solution for a problem the planet does not know it is facing. But Adya begins to question their program. Banished to the frozen Canadian Sheild for challenging the status quo, she finds the men in the underground city of Sanctum are interested in more than just her genes as they search for the answer to her presence in the timeline. In the end, Adya encounters a choice no mother should ever face: her children...or everyone else.
