|Plot Summary of Time Lottery|
Alexander MacMillan takes a job as a public relations expert with Time Travel Corporation (TTC). He oversees the televised drawing in the first ever lottery which will allow three people to travel through time back in their lives to make changes which affect their lives now, or to stay in their Alternity, their altered past.
Phoebe Thurgood is the first chosen. Her Alternity takes her back before she met and married her overbearing, controlling husband. Chosen next is Cheryl Nickolby, present day pop singer who wants to go back to her high school days to reconnect with the boy who found her invisible. Roosevelt Hazen is the third, but he found out too late and his lottery ticket is stolen by Leon Burke. Leon cons his way back into his past.
