Ruben Prien is still at work with the Project, still dreaming of altering man's fate by going back in time to adjust events. Ruben's purpose in summoning Simon Morley back from that earlier world is to prevent World War I. It is ironic, therefore, that the man assigned to carry to America the papers that might help avert the Great Catastrophe travels to his meeting onboard the Titanic. And it is Si's task to attempt to ensure his safe passage.

"Mind-boggling, imagination-stretching." (San Francisco Examiner)
"One of the most important, and most moving, timeslip texts yet composed." (Encyclopedia of Fantasy on Time and Again)
The author pours on a lot of description, so much so that the story at times feels lik it's not moving anywhere. Self hypnotice for moving in time also stretches the belief rather much. If you like a story describing the 1910s you probably will like this though.
