The beautiful daughter of a wealthy rancher, Bethie Jo has pined for the ranch hand next door for as long as she can remember.
★ Can she still love him when she learns who he really is?
Bethie Jo is in her senior year of high school, class of 1957, and is feeling the pressure to find a well-to-do rancher’s son to marry.
But none of the high school boys interest her. The man she’s known most of her life, however, the cowboy who works at the strange ranch next door, is the one she wants. And she is willing to go against all the prejudices of her friends, her parents, and the whole town to follow her heart.
But Calvin is hiding more than she realizes.
Cal’s own heart has been tied to Bethie Jo’s since he first met her. When she decides she’s ready to take their relationship to the next level, Cal tries his best to fit in.
But if they are going to be lovers, he must reveal to her who he really is and what is really going on behind the odd happenings at the Myer ranch. The rumored Skinwalkers are closer to her than she knows.
At first, his differences don’t matter — Bethie Jo loves him anyway.
But when she sees what the alien in him can become, something vilified by everyone in town, will she stay with him as she promised?
After witnessing the death of his beloved wife, Thomas Lee becomes trapped in a repeating nightmare which forces him to relive the experience each time he wakes from sleep. Once convinced he could prevent the tragedy before it happens, Thomas enters dangerous, unfamiliar territory to try and save his one true love, Juliandra.
Saturday July 12th 2014, just beyond the city of Bangor, Maine, a small home rented by Thomas and Juliandra Lee, becomes the location where love and time are pitted against each other in a battle of hope. The married couple will wake at 8:36am and begin to share a delightful long awaited day together, until suddenly Juliandra is killed in front of Thomas exactly one hour later.
An emotionally distraught Thomas helplessly holds Juliandra’s dying body in his arms and in a rare and unexplainable moment his heart stops beating at the same time his beloved wife slips away. For a few brief seconds Thomas feels time pause… no sound, no movement and no pain, just the vision of Juliandra’s face and a tear that had fallen from her eye frozen in the air. A brief flash occurs just before his body collapses to the floor beside her.
After an ambulance crew revives Thomas moments later, he soon realizes that time is repeating itself whenever he wakes from sleep, causing him to relive that same morning when Juliandra was killed. He begins questioning his sanity, his beliefs and the people around him to find the answers he needs to save his wife before the clock strikes 9:36am.
Thomas ventures into unfamiliar territory where he must let go of his kind and passive nature while digging into the past of his wife’s father, Reggie Washington. Doing everything he can to keep from sleeping and avoid reliving that morning, Thomas works nonstop to link events which happened years in the past to the present day murder of his wife.
