On one impossible day in 1965, eight-year-old Willa receives a mysterious box containing a jar of water and the instruction- 'One ocean- plant in the backyard.' So she does - and somehow creates an extraordinary time slip that allows her to visit her future selves. On one impossible day in 1990, Willa is 33 and a mother-of-two when her childhood self magically appears in her backyard. But she's also a woman haunted by memories of her dark past - and is on the brink of a decision that will have tragic repercussions . . .

Yet she knows there's something she has to remember, a warning she must give her past selves about a terrible event in 1990. If only she could recall what it was.
