How long would you wait for the one you love? The heartbreaking and unforgettable story of a couple who are at once weeks and many years apart.

It starts with a goodbye and the sacrifice of a lifetime. When Polly and Frank are torn apart their love must survive solely on the promise of a future together...

It is 1981 and America is in the grip of a deadly flu pandemic. When Frank catches the virus, his girlfriend Polly will do whatever it takes to save him. It will mean her risking everything: Frank can only receive the life-saving treatment he so desperately needs if Polly agrees to time travel to the future. They promise to meet again in Galveston, Texas in 1993.

But when Polly is re-routed and arrives five years late, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a divided America, with no status and no money, Polly is desperate to find him. But as danger mounts and her search demands unthinkable sacrifice, she must ask herself: what does it cost to hold on to the past, and what does it cost to let it go?

An Ocean of Minutes is a devastating and timely novel about hope, yearning, migration and how far we will go for the ones we love.
