Publisher's Summary

Atlantic City. 1992: Dan Grossman comes across a story that sounds incredible. Did the South really win the Civil War? Did a lone physicist really go back in time and prevent Armageddon? Or is it just the delusional dream of an acknowledged schizophrenic?Within the narrative is the genius of Doctor Wasserman; the sweetness of Kay Miller; the strength of Jennie McIntosh; the heroism of Captain Scott; and most of all, the unforgettable Abbey Washington.Once he delves into. Grossman finds the madness of Carl Miller may not be madness at all but instead an unbelievable truth.The Confederate States of America, 1863: Dr. Carl Miller has only 10 weeks in order to find the only person he believes capable of altering his history: the niece of General Robert E. Lee. He must convince her that the South needs to lose the war and that her uncle is the key to preventing the death of millions.Dr. Miller has accounted for everything in his plan to change the world - except falling in love with the woman he must turn traitor. To save the future, he must destroy the past - and his only chance at happiness.

A splendid little book

I am a keen fan of "What if?" SF, alternative histories and so on, and so I was looking forward to listening to this book, having read reviews of it elswhere.

What a terrific book it is - really well written, with a very touching love story running through the story. I was absolutely hooked from the start, and fairly gobbled it up! The basic premise of how great history can be altered by even the smallest of apparently unrelated changes is an intriguing one, and it is very cleverly developed in this book.

The narration is pretty good too, perhaps a bit over-dramatic at times for my taste, but varied and well paced on the whole, and with good characterisation.

Strongly recommended.

Surprised I had not heard of it before...

What a great book! I am surprised it is not better known as it is well-written, has interesting characters and a clever plot. I have read other sci-fi books which, although regarded as classic, genre-defining stories, do not match up to this one for it's beginning-to-end enjoyment. As such, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi combined with history and 'what-if' speculation. The narration is excellent.
