Happily married, Vanessa and Tony are the proud parents of three little girls—still, something’s missing. Both Vanessa and Tony want to finish their degrees. It’s a pretty big decision, but with their heart set on the University of Washington, they make a pact: One or the other will always be at home with the kids. It’s only fair, so when the couple schedules their classes, courses, and lab work it’s a matter of protecting home base. As it goes, life is good, if a little hectic. Vanessa often finds herself at the lab on campus late at night, but so what? She’s young. Still, when she accidently steps through a time portal on campus that shoots her into the future, she’ll have to trade in her lab coat for a super hero’s cape—and hold on for dear life.
Part time warp Nancy Drew mystery, part Super Mom drama, Department of Temporal Adjustment is a funny, tender, and engaging adventure about motherhood—and the incredible juggling act a working woman succeeds at every day, even when one hand is tied behind her back.
