outside the mine now look very new. And the cars that pass by look nothing like the cars he saw around when stepped into the cave. Joel realizes it is no longer the year 2000, but the spring of 1941. On a whim he travels up to Seattle, where he happens to meet his own
grandmother and her group of friends. When he first meets one of the girls in the group, Grace Vandenberg, he knows he has found the love of his life. But when Joel gets the chance to go back, he suddenly has to decide whether to go back alone or stay and risk changing the
course of his own life.
This was a great well-thought-out story with a lot of likeable and fun characters. Joel and Grace are a fun couple, but Joel´s grandmother Ginny and another girl in the group Katie are great characters too. Joel is thrown into this strange situation, but he really lands on his feet and fits in very easily in the 1940´s. It is an easy read, but still with a lot of depth. Joel lands in 1941 just before the US enters WWII, and you really feel for him, knowing how so many
things will change, but not being able to tell anyone about it. Time travel is always a tricky theme, but I think the author handled it great. All the details seemed to mesh and come together nicely, and the twist at the end was perfect.
I really liked this story, although there were some bits every now and then that were slow. This is a romance, but it is also sci-fi and historical, all rolled in to one, and should appeal to a wide range of readers.
