The Last Sunset offers a unique twist to the common time travel plot. Imagine accidental travelers, from three separate time periods, arriving during a historical massacre of Scottish rebels during the 18th century. Written with an easy style, Bob Atkinson explores the complexities of family, courage, camaraderie, attraction, and courting from four cultural perspectives. The difference in language and dialect adds to the overall story. (In contrast to other books that hide the lack of a storyline by using a dialect that is difficult to read.)

I almost enjoyed this book enough to rate five stars but I currently reserve that rating for books that I believe will reside in my thoughts for a considerable time. Some rating systems allow for half stars and this book easily rates four-and-a-half stars. I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Bob Atkinson Hi Barth, thank you for taking the time to review my book. Such well written and constructive feedback is exceptionally gratifying, and is a real pleasure to read. All writers constantly seek to improve themselves - none of us is the finished article - and in my next novel I will be hoping to earn that final, elusive half-star.
Thank you once again for your excellent review.
