Summary

1967. Four female scientists invent a time travel machine. They are on the cusp of fame, but then one of them suffers a breakdown and puts the whole project in peril....

2017. Ruby knows her beloved Granny Bee was a pioneer, but they never talk about the past. Then they receive a message from the future - a newspaper clipping reporting the mysterious death of an elderly lady....

2018. When Odette discovered the body, she went into shock. Blood everywhere; bullet wounds; that strong reek of sulphur. But when the inquest fails to find any answers, she is frustrated. Who is this dead woman that haunts her dreams? And why is everyone determined to cover up her murder?

Not great

Not great. Interesting idea but superficially addressed. Not convincing and therefore rather boring to listen to.

Beautiful Story

A beautiful story, romantic, thrilling, time-travel, murder mystery. Very well written, very well read. I both wanted it to end so I could learn the secrets and didn't want it to end as I wanted more.
Loved it

Time travellers coping with knowing too much

A quite interesting take on time travel, in this story about the health risks of time travelling, the emotional burden time travellers may have to carry, and the types of crimes and crime solving involved with time travelling. The novel tells the stories of a group of women, interconnected through different time periods, some travellers, some just trying to cope with time travelling consequences and rules.

I loved this book!

This book was really fun to listen to. The plot comes from the perspective of different characters and from different times, which makes you want to go back and re-listen afterwards!

interesting,

well narrated. I'm not sure I agree with the ethics. Also if nothing can be changed, what is the point of time travelling?

Brilliant

The story has intrigue and depth, but is easy to follow - it’s clever, well thought out, absolutely loved it.
The narrator is extraordinary too, really gave the characters life.
