Dark, meticulously researched, and deeply disturbing, the story is simultaneously experienced through the lives of two otherwise-ordinary people, living three centuries apart, who discover in adulthood that they are not mentally ill, but are in reality exceptionally gifted.
Because of that and because of the appalling things that happen to each of them during the time they believe themselves to be ill, they embark on personal journeys — Frank in the 1600’s and Katherine in present day — actually finding a way to transcend time and death, meet each other, and then work together to save millions of others who’ve been ostracized from society and victimized
because they, too, have been erroneously labeled mentally ill.
“The only thing worse than having an incomprehensible, incurable illness is having an incomprehensible,
incurable illness in isolation.”
~~Francis Nettleton, 1739~~
