An average Wednesday night gets turned upside down when 16-year-old Cate McAuliffe inexplicably finds herself whisked to The Village, a way station for accidental time travelers. Stranded amongst countless others struggling to grasp that the year is 2043, she meets Angus Danann, a handsome 19-year-old boy from Ireland.

It becomes clear that Angus and Cate are destined to help the other “rifters” back to their own time. As the two of them struggle through one harrowing situation after another, they attract the attention of General Lyons, the stern overseer of The Village.

With their lives at risk, Angus is forced to reveal a secret that changes the game completely—for all of them. If they give General Lyons what he wants, they get to go home. But if they succeed at their task, Cate and Angus doom themselves to being stranded in vastly different times, separated from one another forever.
