The Regulator welcomes New York Times bestselling author and former Regulator staffer Emily Colin (The Memory Thief) for a reading and signing of her new book, The Dream Keeper’s Daughter, about an extraordinary time-bending journey from present-day South Carolina to historical nineteenth-century Barbados. Eight years after the unsolved disappearance of her boyfriend Max Adair, archaeologist Isabel Griffin has managed to rebuild her life with her young daughter, Finn—her last tie to Max. But after a series of strange incidents, Isabel begins to wonder if Max might still be alive somewhere, trying to communicate with her. Max has slipped through time and place, landing on his ancestral family plantation in 1816 Barbados, on the eve of a historic slave uprising. As Isabel searches for answers, Max must figure out not only how to survive the violence to come, but how to get back to his own century, the woman he loves, and the daughter he has only met in his dreams.
