Publisher's Summary

In 1948, a film star sees a strange man in her photos.
In 2019, a writer sees a strange woman in his photos.
Film star and writer occupy the same beach house - 71 years apart.
In an extraordinary moment, they meet face-to-face.  

Hypnotic, original and intrepid. This story grabs you from the first page and never lets go." (Peggy-Anne Lawford, Perfect Word Book Blog

Rita Randall, a celebrated film noir actress in 1948, leaves LA after a fatal confrontation. Clint West is a best-selling author in 2019, struggling to move on after the death of his wife. Rita and Clint travel to Long Island, New York and occupy the same beach house - 71 years apart.

When Rita appears in the background of Clint’s recent cell phone photos, he’s mystified. When Clint appears in Rita’s photos, she’s troubled and confused. 

Clint investigates and learns about secret time travel experiments that were conducted in the area during the 1940s. Clint meets Oscar, a 95-year-old physicist, who had worked for the military in the 1940s and who had time traveled himself, using time portals. 

During a thunderstorm, Rita wanders the beach. When she sees a rolling blue, misty wave charging toward her, she pivots and darts away. But there is no escape and she is swallowed, tossed and propelled forward into the future - to 2019.  

Rita and Clint meet face-to-face, and their lives are changed forever.

Great read!!!

I loved this book! It’s a great easy ‘read’.
The narrator’s ‘female’ voice leaves a little to be desired, I almost turned it off, but glad I didn’t...i was able to become so engrossed in the story that I overlooked it.

romantic but not practical time travel storyline

I love time travel stories and mildly enjoyed the book.
Romantic, bordered silly, at times, when the most basic plans were not done; to stay in one single example, the question of time traveling with money was never raised.
A few times it looked more like a soap opera, with lack of rationality and cliche storyline where the beauty and innocent meets the gentle but slightly wild well mannered and successful male man ... Jesus....
This is a book for people looking for an interesting romance story not sci-fi lovers nor pragmatic readers

I love this book and the storyline.

I love the story and I love how the chapters were just marked 1948 or 2019. it is beautifully written with lots of twists in the plot. if you like film noir you'll love this book. the only criticism I have of the narrator is I didn't like the voice of Rita Randall. maybe I would have preferred that he just read it as himself but other than that he was wonderful!
