    A woman must fix what a sorceress has wrought. First stop: the Titanic. A mind-bending time-travel adventure from the author of The Journal series.  
     
    Morgan, a powerful 800-year-old sorceress, wants to make amends for the bad things she’s done during her long life. She has perfected a spell that opens a gateway to the past; the only problem is that she can’t return to a time she’s already lived through. If she does, both her younger spirit and her current form would cease to exist. The only solution is to convince someone to travel back for her—someone that wouldn’t be missed if things went wrong. 
     
    Sage Aster doesn’t really believe that Morgan can send her back to the past, so as payment for the kindness Morgan showed her when she was homeless and alone, Sage agrees to the time travel experiment. She is then stunned to find herself transported back to 1912 aboard the doomed Titanic. 
     
    Again and again Sage is sent back to different timelines, never quite knowing what she is supposed to accomplish—or how to make things right.

As the two women form a bond over their shared traumas, Sara finds the strength to stand up to her abuser, and Mary—silent for six decades—is finally ready to tell her story …Through the counterpoint voices—one modern Englishwoman, one Northern Irish farmgirl speaking from half a century earlier—Stuart Neville offers a chilling and gorgeous portrait of violence and resilience in this haunting narrative.
