Time and again book review
Time and Again (novel) - WikipediaI was glad I happened to purchase the illustrated version of the book as the old photo's and sketches added to my enjoyment. Great ending for a book club discussion. Loved the book! So, how did Si Morley ever get back there if Danzinger was never born?? Also, would have liked to know how Si and Julie's final meeting and life together turned out as well as Jake's cover up of his identity. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
