Si Morley is bored with his job as a commercial artist, and his social life doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So when he's approached by an affable ex-football star and told he's just what the government is looking for to be part of a top-secret project, he doesn't hesitate. One night he steps out of his twentieth-century New York apartment into the winter of 1882 and finds a kind of Eden.

"One of the most important, and most moving, timeslip texts yet composed." (Encyclopedia of Fantasy)
I read this book when i was younger and thought id relive it through audio . its a great story and you can almost feel that your transported back in time with Si . Jeff Harding is great at telling storys and this book is no exception . Fully recomended
The descriptions of the location, they felt very real
Well it's a time travelling story, but not like any other I have read.
I have listened to many Audio Books performed by Jeff Harding and I think it fair to say he is brilliant, Characterisation, Pace, tone, what is not to like?
The first successful jump/shift in time is exciting, it is all depicted as so simple, if it were possible you may be able to recreate.
This is a brilliant story, it really does bounce along at a fair pace, there is quite a lot of descriptive dialogue but it is relevant.
