In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and
Station Eleven, a sweeping literary love story about
two people who are at once mere weeks and many years
America is in the grip of a deadly flu
pandemic. When Frank catches the virus, his girlfriend Polly
will do whatever it takes to save him, even if it means
risking everything. She agrees to a radical plan—time travel
has been invented in the future to thwart the virus. If she
signs up for a one-way-trip into the future to work as a
bonded laborer, the company will pay for the life-saving
treatment Frank needs. Polly promises to meet Frank again in
Galveston, Texas, where she will arrive in twelve years.
But when Polly is re-routed an extra five years into the
future, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a changed and
divided America, with no status and no money, Polly must
navigate a new life and find a way to locate Frank, to
discover if he is alive, and if their love has endured.
An Ocean of Minutes is a gorgeous and
heartbreaking story about the endurance and complexity of
human relationships and the cost of holding onto the
past—and the price of letting it go.
