Silver Line is a romantic tale in the truest sense of the word, combining an American legend, time travel adventure, and a modern mystery. Jared Sutherland knew nothing of the diary that lay hidden in a quiet corner of Colorado, nor did he know he had a former life. Son of the main character in Tory Roof, he had repressed his extrasensory skills until he meets Alexa St. Clair at an East Coast college. There they discover they can revert to their former, 10-year-older selves — a rugged miner and a beautiful dance hall girl living in an 1860s Colorado town. Lured by the adventure and heat of romance, they continue to return, facing the rigors of frontier life: gunfights, claim jumping, and an epidemic. As a journalism student, Jared is also consumed by the unsolved Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist which, for 30 years, remains on ongoing investigation. Determined to locate the stolen art for an article he is writing, Jared and Alexa encounter a stalker, shady art dealers, and a homeless man who knows a lot. With too many cooincidences to ignore, they ultimately realize that clues to the present lie in the past.
