  • A secret government project goes badly awry, and the unintended result is army Sergeant-Major John Thomas along with nine other solders in a personnel carrier regain consciousness, and inexplicably find themselves almost 150 years back in time.РїС—Р… Deep in the wilderness of the American west, the men manage to locate the closest settlement, an Army fort that in the twenty-first century is a cheesy roadside tourist attraction.РїС—Р… As they wrestle with their situation and begin to try and fit in, the racially diverse group must also face the prejudices and bigotry of the era.РїС—Р… Thomas meets Katelyn OРІР‚в„ўConner, former captive of the Sioux Indians and now a laundress on the fringes of society at the fort.РїС—Р… Shunned by the people there for refusing to abandon her half-breed baby Akecheta when rescued, Thomas is drawn to her unquenchable spirit and beautiful child.When contact with their own time is unexpectedly re-established along with the dubious promise of a return home, Thomas is warned they must not upset history in any way as that would imperil the planet, but it is too late.РїС—Р… One of his men is not looking forward to leaving; himself a Sioux Indian who is able to locate his ancestors.РїС—Р… When the young man deserts the group, he kidnaps mother and child to return them to the father, who happens to be his own great-great-great grandfather, and unknowingly endangers everything.Facing a ticking clock, forbidden to alter anything and amidst a devastating epidemic sweeping the area, Thomas and his surviving men struggle to put things right and stop the renegade soldier before he unwittingly destroys everything for us all.NOW AND THEN explores the human experience and the power of love with characters trapped in an untenable situation.
