In flu-ravaged 1918 Philadelphia, Fiora Vicente, the freshly orphaned and forward-thinking daughter of the local fortune teller, has goals. She has ambitions. But when faced with a future she hasn’t planned, she has second thoughts–and casts her community into a stagnant bubble of time.
Inside the bubble, life among Fiora’s superstitious neighbors continues, but nothing progresses, swamped by a steady stream of unspent seconds. As the pressure builds Fiora realizes she must find the courage to collapse the bubble–or risk trapping her dreams in an unbearable, unyielding, and infinite Now. (From Goodreads)
A Huge Thank You to BookSparks for sending me this book as part of #FRC2017 I did not get the chance to read this one yet, as it sounds a bit heavy, and I was in a bit of a book slump. But it sounds very interesting, and I wanted to make sure to share it with my followers, regardless if I had read it or not.
