Rand is alone on Earth until he discovers another survivor. But she's in orbit. Now they must work together to survive and restore humanity.
In a fraction of a second, the world can change. For Rand Carter a fraction of a second is long enough to leave him as the only human being on earth, struggling to survive for months until he stumbles upon another: Astronaut Elsie Clay. Stranded on the International Space Station Elsie has only days to live, but getting her back to Earth is only the beginning of their challenges.
As they build a new home in a world without people, they discover the cause of their predicament: a secret government program in time travel that has been running since the fifties. Using the massive device they attempt to reconnect with their time, but end up in nineteen forty nine. They search for the man who invented the machine, Dr. Remmel and try to keep him from falling into the hands of the Russians, but Remmel’s devout Nazi wife has other ideas.
