Falling in the Garden
Walter G. Klimczak
I stood in anticipation before my open bedroom window, listening to the steady cadence of the rain. It fell upon the darkened world beyond and a myriad collection of sounds melted seamlessly together to form the powerful, dissonant voice of the storm. For all its predictability, there remained an element of surprise within the static-a subtle, unspoken phrase or message trying to break through the surface.Doing his best to live a life touched by sorrow, Michael Sullivan has always been searching for an answer. When his best friend moves away, he tries to look within for some kind of explanation. Then he meets Ashley Haddow in the center of a sprawling forest-a place they call The Meadow. Separated by a span of over 50 years, both form a friendship that transcends time.They soon come to share an impossible secret and find themselves in the middle of something far stranger than they could have ever imagined.

The book begins with Michael's best friend Joe moving away. He lives in a fairly secluded area surrounded by a forest with his mother. Carrying on with the explorations and adventures he and his best friend had in the forests, Michael discovers that he when he is in a certain place, he can speak to Ashley Haddow. They are the same age, but the year is 1946 according to Ashley, not 1999.
