Overview
Everyone thinks about changing something in their past, but we all know the past can’t be changed. But what if it could be? What if all of time was at your fingertips and all it took to change it were the strokes of a pen? Would you do it? Would you change the past, with no idea of the consequences? Would you risk the ripple effect those changes could cause on time just to change some small detail? Can you honestly say you wouldn’t take that chance? Or is that idea simply too tempting? Kassie is a teenage girl struggling to come to terms with the events in her past and to accept her life for what it is. Kassie has to deal with her own personal struggles as well as all the normal things that every other teenager must face. Having yet to overcome her father’s death, Kassie wants nothing more than to erase that one event from history. Just when she thinks her life has hit rock bottom, fate steps in to turn her world upside down. Quinn enters her life and offers her everything she’s dreamed of. What she is completely unaware of is that Quinn was sent to her by the Book of Ages. Guarded and kept secret by a group known as the Guardians, the Book of Ages contains the entire history of the world, from the beginning to the present. The book can be used to alter history when written in by a predestined Scribe. What Kassie doesn’t know is that the book has prophesied her to be the new Scribe, as well as Quinn’s soul-mate. Believing that her life is finally heading in the right direction with Quinn, Kassie is caught completely by surprise when everything starts to unravel. She learns that Quinn has been lying to her from the beginning. Quinn must fight to regain Kassie's trust while trying to protect her from a part of the past everyone thought was dead and gone, a danger that threatens to force her to rewrite history itself. Can Quinn convince Kassie to embrace her destiny with him and help protect the book before she risks her future for the chance to change the past?
Description
Everyone thinks about changing something in their past, but we all know the past can’t be changed. But what if it could be? What if all of time was at your fingertips and all it took to change it were the strokes of a pen? Would you do it? Would you change the past, with no idea of the consequences? Would you risk the ripple effect those changes could cause on time, just to change some small detail? Can you honestly say you wouldn’t take that chance? Or is that idea simply too tempting? Kassie is a teenage girl struggling to come to terms with the events in her past and to accept her life for what it is. Kassie has to deal with her own personal struggles as well as all the normal things that every other teenager must face. Having yet to overcome her father’s death, Kassie wants nothing more than to erase that one event from history. Just when she thinks her life has hit rock bottom, fate steps in to turn her world completely upside down. Quinn enters her life and offers her everything she’s dreamed of. He brings happiness and peace back into her life. What she is completely unaware of is that Quinn was sent to her by the Book of Ages. Guarded and kept secret by a group known as the Guardians, the Book of Ages contains the entire history of the world, from the beginning to the present. The book can be used to alter history when written in by a predestined Scribe. What Kassie doesn’t know is that the book has prophesied her to be the new Scribe, as well as Quinn’s soul-mate. Understanding her importance to both the book as well as to him, Quinn struggles with telling her the truth about who he is and just what he helps to protect. He knows that she still grieves for the loss of her father and would like nothing more than to go back and change what happened to him, something he cannot allow her to do. He knows, and understands, the effect changing one event could have on the future. Believing that her life is finally heading in the right direction with Quinn, Kassie is caught completely by surprise when everything starts to unravel. She learns that Quinn has been lying to her from the beginning and one of the few people she believed she could trust the most in her life is not exactly who he seems. She begins to learn the real truth about events in her own life and those she thought she could trust. Quinn must fight to regain Kassie's trust while trying to protect her from a part of the past everyone thought was dead and gone, a danger that threatens to force her to rewrite history itself. Can Quinn convince Kassie to embrace her destiny with him and help protect the book before she risks her future, and his love, for the opportunity to change the past?
About the author
Ms. Bosch was born in Buffalo, New York and raised in the surrounding suburbs. One of the great things about living in an area with roughly 5 months of snow and freezing temperatures is that it leaves you with a good deal of free time. Not really one for wandering around in the snow (unless it was to go to the local bookstore) she ended up spending a great deal of time lost in a good book or at her computer writing. The idea behind her first series of novels actually started out as a random thought about wishing recent events in her past could have happened differently, an idea that just about everyone thinks about at some point in their lifetime. What evolved from that one simple thought ended up becoming something truly unexpected, as most of what she ended up with came to her as she was sitting at her computer late at night (or at the most inconvenient times like when she was driving to work or working with her students). The end result, however, is something she is truly proud of.
