Summary
With her hair bobbed and in a flapper dress, Nora Lansing is a 23-year-old just returned home from Paris in 1925, so why is Joe Reynolds, a railroad lever-man at Grand Central Terminal, being asked to escort her home in 1937? Immediately smitten, Joe is frustrated when she disappears into a crowd, but won't see until a year later when she strangely reappears wearing the same clothes. This time, Joe is determined not to let her get away, but will merely loving this timeless woman be enough to keep her by his side?
Critique
This 'time-travel' novel is a bittersweet romance that will sweep its readers away. With its behind-the-scenes descriptions of the history of Grand Central Station, depiction of post-Depression life in New York City and realistic portrayal of the pressure for men to join the U.S. Armed Services during the WWII, it is also a fascinating novel of historical fiction.
