Discovering a sequel to Time and Again was sheer delight. So enjoyed that read that I really looked forward to this one. If you want to immerse yourself in another era, I don't believe that there is another writer who does it so well complete with black and white photos of the time. One becomes reacquainted with Simon (Si) Morley who is able to move from one time span to another. Living in the 1800s with his beautiful wife and son, he decides to come back to visit the era in which he was born. A man from the project in which he was originally involved has become obsessed with the idea that WWI could have been prevented. That is Si' s new assignment. The story unravels from this point when he discovers that Roosevelt had sent an ambassador with a message to Europe. The ambassador never returns and WWI commences. Si and this individual must be the only ones who do not know who the ambassador was or that he perished on the Titanic. Thus the next task is to avoid the sinking of the great ship. Good fast read.

Was Simon who lives with his beautiful wife and son in 1800 America to blame? A traveler reverses Simon's effort to thwart the meeting of Dr. Danziger's parents so that part changes back but other differences remain. Why>"
