In a town where change is slow to take shape, and in a time when husbands tell their wives how to vote, artist Lynn Westfall decides to make a difference. The other women of Quillan's Crossing think empowerment is a good idea, and are eager to talk... and talk... and talk about it. None of them want to do more. Except for the vibrant Alix Dunnevan, a woman whose marriage to a local powerhouse politician is held up as the perfect ideal.

Before she knows it, their shared love of music and growing camaraderie means more than it should, and Lynn finds herself a painful cliche: the lesbian who has fallen for the straight woman. Even if by some miracle Alix returned her feelings, Lynn is certain Alix's husband is capable of keeping her and their daughters chained to him.

Lynn searches for the strength to walk away. Even when the mask that Alix wears starts to slip and conflict inside her marriage suggest cracks have existed for years, it doesn't mean there is hope...

It was a desperate choice. Stay and die, or accept cryosleep and wake in the near future cured. Leslie Burke chose to sleep.

She awakens to the unthinkable—four thousand years and more have passed. Leslie and others like her are revived as scarcely tolerated refugees from the past. Beset with loneliness and confusion, Leslie grapples with the enormity of the changes around her. Faxims live alongside humans, but she quickly realizes that the greed and duplicity of the human heart haven't changed.

Concerned only with finding a place for herself in a new world, Leslie can't fathom why she is singled out for scrutiny by the ruling Council. Who can she call friend? How can she trust her own heart, especially regarding the alluring—but not quite human—Aimee?
