The twenty-first century historians (Polly Churchill, Merope Ward, and Michael Ward) remain stuck in England during the Nazi Blitz of the country. After being separated for a time (see Blackout), they reunite in London. However, their effort to find a way to tell their future associates at Oxford in 2060 about their predicament remains impossible.

They also know time is running out before Polly's presence causes a time paradox having been to this era once before. Their fears over the Polly quandary also have them afraid they may have already changed 1940, which will have ripple effects into their time and beyond.

The sequel to Blackout is a fantastic time travel thriller as the trio struggles with the notions that ironically time is running out on them and they may have caused a change in the future. The story line is fast-paced, but the previous tale must be read first to grasp the nuances of All Clear. Fans will relish this strong tale as the trapped threesome in 1940 is unaware that their colleagues back in 2060 are working a time correction to insure All Quiet on the Western Front.

"What if...?"

What if this book had an editor who knew how to wield a red pencil? What if someone had actually bothered to check how many times the phrase "what if" began a sentence in this book? What if the plot wasn't sidetracked by ENDLESS worrying about "what ifs" by its principal characters? What if the story focused on what the characters actually did, rather than their incessant "what if" questioning? What if the author spent more time on the interesting details of life under the Blitz, or better fleshed out what was happening back in the future?

Then, the book may have been worth reading...

    Loved the story but...

    I was warned not to read "Blackout" until "All Clear" had come out, so I read them over the weekend together. I love the story line, but the ending is confusing. She gets you so wrapped up in these peoples lives (see other reviews) and then doesn't really tell you what happened. That was the biggest disappointment. Then, since the other reader had read a copy out of the library, I was going to "lend" my e-book version so she could re-read and see if she could explain the ending to me better (who the heck is Colin really?) and I could not lend it. If I'd bought it in paper it would be in the mail already. I'm disappointed in the publisher being so rude about that.
