It's 1907. Alerted by her time-traveled parents (MOON NIGHT) that Jake Livingston, 39, plans to wed Marguerite Desmond, willful Emilee Schuyier, 19, charges home to Boulder, Colorado to set him straight. The problem is, how do you seduce the man who's loved you like a big brother from the day you were born?

Emilee tackles the problem obliquely. She and Jake are privy to knowledge of important coming events through the 'future history' remembered by her parents, now touring in Europe. Announcing her appointment as the new vice-president of Schuyier Enterprises, Emilee tries to convince Jake, the new president, to begin SE's development of a luxury resort the family will transform into a rehabilitation hospital after the coming World War. Jake is adamantly against her choice of site. Emilee, however, has learned to dowse, and has her own way of knowing things.

A German friend of Marguerite wants to buy a defunct silver mine owned by Emilee. She refuses to sell it to the "Kaiser's man," claiming her dowsing rods indicate the mine still holds valuable ore. Jake's new secretary, young Anthony Parmenter, becomes Emilee's secret ally. He introduces her to his uncle, who offers to loan SE the money to purchase and renovate the resort site Emilee wants.

Jake is a stubborn man, and enamored of his passionate fiancee. Emilee is certain she knows what's best for Jake, and her name isn't Marguerite.

Meanwhile Anthony and Amos Carruthers, a young architect-about-town, vie for Emilee's affection.

Jake has his hands full.
