Description

After discovering an old photograph, an elderly antiques dealer living in present-day Los Angeles is forced to revisit the history he has struggled to deny. The photograph depicts a man and a woman. The man is Peter Force, a young frontier adventurer who comes to New York City in 1901 and quickly lands a job digging the first subway tunnels beneath the metropolis. The woman is Cheri-Anne Toledo, a beautiful mathematical prodigy whose memories appear to come from another world. They meet seemingly by chance, and Peter initially dismisses her as crazy. But as they are drawn into a tangle of overlapping intrigues, Peter must reexamine Cheri-Anne's fantastic story. Could it be that she is telling the truth and that she has stumbled onto the most dangerous secret imaginable: the key to traveling through time? Set against the mazelike streets of New York at the dawn of the mechanical age, Peter and Cheri-Anne find themselves wrestling with the nature of history, technology, and the unfolding of time itself.

Professional reviews

"Recently arrived in Manhattan in 1900, Peter Force joins a labor crew that is helping to construct the new subway system. In New York he meets a mysterious woman who claims to have traveled into the future from a place he knows all too well. But the frontier kingdom never existed quite as she claims. Todd McClaren gives a soft-spoken, carefully navigated reading that allows the author's beautiful descriptions to woo the listener with their simplicity. McClaren's tone is straightforward, his pace relaxed. Overall, McClaren's delivery is so smooth that it's easy to get lost in this genre-crossing novel. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
