Overview

What if history didn’t happen that way the first time?

Reclusive Soviet scientist Garison Fitch’s experiment with interdimensional travel landed him in 1744. There he met and fell in love with Sarah, a beautiful but outcast young woman. They married and had three children and he decided to stay in the past. When he tried to rid himself of his time machine by sending it into the future, it took him with it.

Now, he finds himself back in the twenty-first century where a woman (Heather) he has never met claims to be his wife and the country he grew up in is gone, replaced by something called “The United States of America”. Should he live in this new world, or try to return the world to "normal"?

As he becomes convinced he can’t return to Sarah, he’s not really sure if he can live in this new world he created, either. Heather, meanwhile, is left trying to discover what happened to her husband or—if his fantastic story is true—he could be be somewhere inside the mind of this “new” Garison Fitch.

    First of all, I am not normally a time travel fan. I often avoid

    First of all, I am not normally a time travel fan. I often avoid these books, but once in a while, I find myself enjoying a book in this genre. "The Time Machine" is one of my favorite classic books, and this book is reminiscent of this story. In other words, this time travel book is fantastic, and I highly recommend it. The writing is phenomenal, and the story is absolutely intriguing. The characterization is masterful, and I had to keep reading so I would know how it ended. And I have to say the ending was a bit of a surprise to me.




    The message of the book truly spoke to me. So often, we think of someone doing something horrible and changing history for the worse. I don't think of someone doing something good and changing history in an unbelievable way. When the book began, I was confused by the history that was detailed. In fact, I only understood about halfway through the book. Then everything made sense, and I was completely captivated. 




    There is one more aspect to this book that was so refreshing. While I cannot guarantee it, I tend to think that the author is a Christian or has Christian background. It was neat to see the main character come to faith. And it was so nice not to have a single inappropriate thing in the book. No profanity, bad language nor loose morals! I definitely want to read the other books in this series and by this author. 




    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
