Infant mortality ** Secret Portal ** Double life
“What a great marriage of utopia and real life, fantasy and reality, past and present in the pacific northwest. I couldn’t put it down.” Amazon reviewer
A small group of scientists from 1850 Portland, Oregon discover a portal that opens to a land of plenty with unfettered opportunity for brilliant minds. Ignoring the fact that no animal or insect exists in the new land, they create the utopian society of their dreams where technology thrives with robots, hoverspheres, and interactive homedomes. All goes well until it doesn’t.
One hundred twenty years later, infants are unable to survive.
Zophie, Zelfar’s top neo-natal physician, knows it’s up to her to find the cure. Her serene life is shattered when she learns the truth of the portal and realizes she must retrace the footsteps of her ancestors to save her colony from extinction. The world on the other side of the portal in 1971 America is foreboding. Unknown dangers become up close and personal when Zophie is wounded by a thug’s bullet. Weapons don’t exist in her world and no person would harm another.
She longs to be with her husband, teen-aged son, and grandmother. How long can she lead a double life before her family has to come before her community?
