In Nysa, Alexander the Great and one of his spouses, the time traveling journalist Ashley, find their abducted son Paul being worshipped by valley natives as "the child of the moon". Seeing Paul in this godly role reminds Ashley that she must avoid inadvertently changing the historical timeline. Not only will she definitely vanish as if she never existed, other unknown things will change. Her biggest fear lies with her two children, who by their existence have forced some changes in time, but Ashley panics over what will happen once Alexander dies for she realizes that they too cannot alter events.

Alexander leads his army to India where battles rage and he suffers injuries. Ashley knows that death stalks him unless she does the unthinkable by changing history and preventing it. In spite of her indoctrination by the Time Travel Institute and her fears of becoming nothingness, Ashley is now considering saving the life of the man she loves.

The first segment of book three of the Iskander series is similar to the previous two stories (see the great TIME FOR ALEXANDER and HEROES IN THE DUST), but once the army reaches India, the tale turns more historical. Unlike the shared ardor of the lead couple in the first two novels, much of the passion of CHILDREN IN THE MORNING is focused on Ashley's dilemma as she becomes increasingly worried about Alexander who she knows will die soon unless she intercedes and in her protection for the next generation.
