Michele Windsor lost Philip Walker forever, or so she thought. When he walks into her high school class, she can’t believe it and eagerly approaches him. But this Philip Walker is nothing like the 1910 version on himself, and he doesn’t remember Michele at all. After some research, Michele figures out that the Time Society and vengeful Windsor ancestor might have something to do with this. Michele is now in the middle of a time rift, and the resolution could have life or death consequences.
