Time and Again (Time and Again: Hornblower-Stone #1-2)

The book actually contains two interrelated stories, about a pair of brothers that meets a pair of sisters. Not too original, I know, but the time travel angle adds a fun twist to the stories. The second story was a bit weaker, but I liked the b...more
