Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement. She’s from 1995 Chicago, and he’s a time traveller from 2012 San Francisco. They never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all the odds. It’s not perfect, of course. Bennett is forced to skip parts of his own present in order to be with Anna in hers, and he's unable to stay in the past for more than brief periods of time.

We all need to be nimble, adaptive, daring, and maybe even a little crazy, or risk being left behind.

Da berührte der spitzige Mund Christines Gesicht, und ihr war, als ob von spitzigem Eisen aus Feuer durch Mark und Bein fahre, durch Leib und Seele; und ein gelber Blitz fuhr zwischen ihnen durch und zeigte Christine freudig verzerrt des Grünen teuflisch Gesicht, und ein Donner fuhr über sie, als ob der Himmel zersprungen wäre.
