About the Book

In eighteenth century Scotland, Magda McClellan, eight months pregnant, is granted one wish from Auld Annie, a wise woman accused of witchcraft. But Magda declines her wish because she is perfectly happy; besides, she doesn't believe in witches. Little does she know how that refusal will change her life forever.

In twenty-first century New York, Maggie McDonald and her husband desperately want to have a child. While they wait for a procedure at a fertility clinic, a Scottish nurse named Annie promises to grant them a baby if it is their wish. When Maggie awakens, she finds herself round with child in eighteenth century Scotland and panic sets in.

Meanwhile, Magda has also been catapulted through time. She wakes up in a hospital bed in New York – but she's not pregnant anymore. When she goes home with a man who claims to be her husband, she searches for clues to the identity of Maggie McDonald, whose body she now inhabits. Why has Magda been transported to this strange place and time? And why is she no longer pregnant?

As the two women become familiar with their new worlds, they find themselves on emotional paths of self-discovery. Join Maggie and Magda on their spellbinding journey as they attempt to return to their past lives – before it's too late.
