Was the January 2018 ballistic false alarm in Hawaii a wake-up call for humanity to evolve as a species? The teenage star-seed Lotus ardently believes it was and that consciousness is shifting to a better reality on a New Earth. Take a multidimensional journey along with three timelines of reality. All three realities intersect at a catalyst event when an official emergency broadcast message is sent by text to alert the people of Hawaii of the imminent threat of an inbound nuclear missile. The multiverse story begins just before the weapon strikes down in Honolulu. Davis, a middle-aged survivalist, begrudgingly allows Lotus to share his tiny concrete bunker with him and his black cat, Merlin. Davis and Lotus make unlikely roommates—one believing that the world is ending, while the other espouses the dawning of a new era of peace. They tolerate each other curiously while the house cat, Merlin, brings magic into the bunker. Will Merlin’s magic prevail with a reality of hope, or will Davis’ worst fears be realized?
Molly, who gave up her daughter for adoption, receives a letter to confirm that she is indeed the mother of Electra. Unable to write a reply, and unhappy with her current life in Seattle, Molly impulsively decides to drive across the country to the return address in Maine to meet her daughter.
Upon arrival in Maine, Molly loses her nerve to follow through with the meeting. Unfortunately, Molly is not only out of courage but also out of money. By coincidence, she takes a job as a housekeeper for the Gelds, Electra's neighbors. Molly is further intimidated by the wealth of the summer community, where she finds herself as a member of the "help." Molly keeps her identity a secret to everyone, except Nathan, the Captain of the Gelds fleet. She is surprised to discover comfort and camaraderie with her fellow workers. Molly finds herself digging deeper into deception, where she feels the only way out is to leave the island or fess up to her past. The choice seems impossible for Molly. Will she risk losing her new life to face up with her past or continue to live a lie?
