Relic Rupture

Overview


An ancient wooden bench that has benefited humankind for ages rests at the center of a picturesque indoor garden. Once a benign and profound influence on humanity's future, the bench ruptures in transit, opening timelines of unnerving visions for those who rest upon it. Through these visions and the resulting turmoil, two people discover love, a widower mourns the death of his wife, and a young woman relives her near death attack. The capability to relive decades old choices, change regretful missteps, and alter the foundations of souls is within grasp. As they alter the past, will their present relationships be erased?

Description


The heartrending struggles of human nature are brought to the surface through a spellbinding mystery of time travel and the opportunity to redo life's choices. A picturesque indoor garden with a central ancient wooden bench holds the key to this mystery. The relic, having benefited humankind through the ages, is damaged en route to its lush new home. Once a guide to humanity, those who rest upon it now suffer haunting and disturbing visions from critical moments in their lives. While confronting acute heartache aggravated by new visions, general contractor Jack discovers love with Kourin, a woman with a scarred heart and a tormented past. As their love strengthens, they struggle to understand the force behind the bench and its true motives. While Jack discovers love, Harry, his best friend, continues his downward spiral from the death of his wife. After an enlightening experience on the bench, Harry seeks to control his visions to visit his beloved Christine. Instead, it returns him to relive his childhood trauma. Harry seeks a way to control the bench, prevent his wife's death, and return to the happiest days in his life. The owner of the terminal café, Laurel, has recurrent nightmares of a suicide bomber. She regained stability through her support dog, Ubu. Through the mysterious bench, Laurel is forced to face her attacker again, but this time with her dog by her side. The bench, once the benign and profound influence on the humanity equation, endangers past timelines. How long until someone dissatisfied enough with their past decisions alters their history and causes a cascade threatening all of humankind?
