“There were many girls last night.”
“I’m thinking of just one in particular. Her name’s Rebecca. Tall, cute, nose freckles.”
Rebecca Tyler is one of the main characters of Disconnected. She's a 27 year old English teacher who has just moved to Sydney from a small country town, after breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Andrew.
Her home telephone is connected by a time wormhole to Mark Campbell's, with whom she becomes romantically linked.
Rebecca is murdered by an alternate timeline version of Mark and is replaced by a stronger, more self-reliant version of herself.
