What do you do when the most important thing about you is something no one could ever believe?
There’s a new girl in town, and when she takes up residence in the beach house next to Jake he’s immediately interested. Octavia is beautiful, intelligent and speaks with an exotic accent that no one can quite place. But what Jake or anyone else in this sleepy little beach town could never suspect is that Octavia is from the distant future. And she’s here on a mission.
Jake is a divorcee with a precocious 11 year old daughter. Octavia never knew what having a family meant, having been raised in the eugenics farms of the future. She hopes to fit into 21st century society and carry out her mission in secret, but falling in love wasn’t part of the mission plan.
As their romance grows Octavia is torn between her mission and the people she loves, and Jake begins to suspect Octavia is carrying a dark secret she isn’t telling him. For the first time in her life Octavia feels like she’s part of a family and she isn’t ready to give that up. It’s not long before she is forced to make a terrible choice. She desperately wants to tell Jake the truth about herself, but how could he ever possibly believe it?
Octavia Seven is a blend of sci-fi, time travel, romance and thriller. Arthur C. Clarke meets Nicholas Sparks.
