Brooke Laforge has only one more year to finish her doctorate, and seems on the fast track to success. Her hopes rest on the Memex, a medical device that stimulates the memory centers of the brain. Brooke is convinced it will cure Alzheimer’s disease, but so far, it has only been tested on mice. When the University Review Board denies permission for human subject testing, Brooke, running out of time and money, decides to try the Memex on herself.As the magnetic fields reach deep within her brain, Brooke is cast into the body of a goldsmith living in medieval times. She follows the lives of the goldsmith, Damian, and his daughter Julia, who faces marriage to a man she does not love, while simultaneously trying to understand the science behind her ‘time machine.’ Forced into secrecy, Brooke hides her activities from her fellow grad student, Chad, who is smitten with her, and from her research adviser, the redoubtable Prof. Hunter. When Brooke finally unravels the time and place of her visits to the past, she realizes that her adopted family is caught up in a momentous crosscurrent of history, as they are directly in the path of the Fourth Crusade.
