E.C. Roderick

2023 FAPA Award Winner

They say time heals all wounds, but it has bound me instead.

Matt was my husband. I was supposed to be with him for the rest of my life when the accident happened and took him away from me. I wouldn't love anyone else. I believed.

Until, I meet Leif. He tells me to trust him and to take my chance with him.

Except, I'm his hostage. Not only am I his hostage, but time is holding me captive too, and I'm suddenly trapped in a world that is not mine. The year is 1756, and I am strangely in Massachusetts Bay Colony. War between Great Britain and France explodes across New England, and terrorizes the territory.

I don't know how I got here, and all I want to do is find a way home. But, the more time I'm stranded here, the more I spend time with Leif, and I am compelled toward him.

Our lives are becoming inextricably entwined, and I'm afraid of losing everything that I once knew and loved.

I begin questioning where I truly belong as I think of the life I left behind.

I wonder if I'm going to withstand this, because all I know for certain is he is bound to my survival... and to the truth of why I'm here.
