I am not a reader of novels. I prefer reading about the lives of real people. But you will think, even though you know it's a work of fiction, that you are reading about "real" people. Maybe the WWII setting helps with that. I don't know. I also am not a fan of sci fi, but that seemed to make no difference in my ability to enjoy "To Earth and Back." The characters truly became real to me in a way that I haven't experienced in a work of fiction in many years. I can't wait to read the next book.

Unique story. Creative, with skillful blend of some real world harsh/violent history and fictional extraterrestrial historical exploration, discovery and intriguing Earthling + "ET" interaction. Our Creator is thoughtfully included as a recurring theme. Looking forward to the sequel.

I enjoyed the fresh new approach to spread the "Good News!" I think people will learn a lot about the persecution of Jews during the 1930's answer WW II.

I really enjoyed this book with its blend of science fiction and history. The characters came alive and kept me on the edge of my seat as the story unfolded. The exciting ending left me wanting more as the adventure ended with a hint of what the future might hold for the main characters. I look forward to William's next book with great anticipation.

A great read. The study of earth from another planet of people. To find Christianity. The case study of a Jewish girls life. From the loo of a family to war and the love between the girl and the person that studying the life of her and the Jewish culture. Ready to read the continuation of the story in the 2nd book.

I HIGHLY RECCOMEND ! This is an unusually well blended story of sci-fi and religion that flows between suspense, social interaction and a love story for the soul. I can't remember ever having picked up a, what I thought was only sci-fi, novel and within two chapters forgetting what genre I had started in. It does not read like a first time novelists "attempt". It has the feel of a seasoned author who might be using a pen name? Regardless, I will be watching & anticipating his next work. Thank you, Mr. BOARDMAN!

Hold on to your hats and glasses! This novel will take you for a ride through space and time! Strap in and get ready for an adventure, this novel will take you on a ride through space and WWII history. I know, sounds bazaar, right? The author has done his research and has a unique way of bringing out your emotions and drawing you into his adventurous tale. I felt as though I was right there with our beloved characters. Attention to detail is done with just the right touch. Superb editing. My emotions went on a roller coaster ride... with the tragedies of WWII, developing love stories, beautiful friendships and relationships, and space adventure too! Their are so many layers within layers in this intricately woven story . At just under 300 pages it is amazing just how much is packed into this firecracker of a novel. I could not put it down! At the heart of this story, What happens when alien beings come to Earth thousands of years ago and discover Christianity? The answer to this question is woven in, subtly, throughout the novel. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride...What a fabulous adventure! I can't wait for the sequel!
