Pamela DuMond will read from her novel The Assassin.
Teenage Madeline has only recently discovered she is a time traveler, a Messenger, who is meant to deliver messages over the course of thousands of years that could change one life or impact many.
She is elated to discover that Samuel, the boy she fell in love with in 1675, is alive in present day, but is heartbroken when he doesn’t remember her from their past. But Samuel is a Healer. His kind re-incarnate, carrying only few memories of their past lives into their future.
Madeline meets a mysterious young man, Ryan, another Messenger, who offers to train her how to become a more proficient and powerful time traveler. Why bother—becoming a Messenger has only brought her heartache?
But Ryan dangles the bait—the more Madeline time travels and the better she gets at it—the more times she’ll encounter Samuel. And every life they cross paths her memory burns into his soul’s unconscious. Perhaps one day he might even remember her.
Madeline travels to several lifetimes until her longing for Samuel pulls her to the “Romeo and Juliet” historical love story in medieval Portugal. Prince Pedro battles his father, the King, and enlists Madeline’s aid as a gypsy spy to hunt down the King’s assassins who murdered his beloved wife.
But time traveling is not without its dangers. The assassins want to stop Madeline and deadly Hunters, dark-souled time travelers, seek to recruit or kill her. As the Prince descends into insanity and Samuel doesn’t seem to be the same young man from Madeline’s past—he carries a dark secret— Madeline finds herself torn between worlds.
Can Madeline find the real message she is meant to deliver? Will Samuel conquer his demons and fall in love with her again? Will Madeline and Samuel, destiny’s lovers, be together again in life—or only in death?
