Sample text

I open the window with shaking fingers and will myself not to hyperventilate. My breathing slows, and I feel the sun warm my face. I inhale the tang and sweetness of herbs and grass and flowers, hear the birds chirping in the vividly green trees. I pull up the sleeve of my nightgown, and there is the same healing cut on my arm from the doctor’s knife. All of these sensations are undeniably real. I’m here. In someone else’s body. In someone else’s life. And here, it appears, I will stay until—or if—I figure out how to get back.
