A time travel romance about a bisexual Jewish grad student from the 1980s, David Adler, who is thrown back to 1941. There he meets Jim Wysynski, a young man who hasn't yet realized he's gay. As World War II looms, the two enlist together and become lovers.

I'm a reader who appreciates having her heart grabbed and wrenched, and this book absolutely delivers. The growing affection between David and Jim is adorable, but it's intermixed with all kinds of pain in both the past and present. (Jim-in-his

Really sweet WW2 (well, mostly; there's time travel) love story. Lots of lovingly-researched detail, on both 1940s Cleveland and training to be a pilot in WW2. The love story is nicely timed, slow build, not instalove, and the end is satisfying as a stopping point, even if the story is not complete (it's one story spread over the three books; only the first volume is currently available but all three have been written so hopefully will be out soon!). Very nice, can't wait to read the others!

WW2 time-travel gay romance! Whee! Several of my favorite genres are combined together into one very nice romance novel. The characters are compelling and the author clearly did a lot of research on WW2 and airplanes. This is the first book in a trilogy and I'm excited to see where the rest of it goes (and what happens to Jim and David in the future); I will definitely be picking up the rest.

Excellently written and an intriguing idea. I love the WW2 era, and unlike a lot of books set in that time, this read true to the time period, and not at all forced or inadequately researched.

The characters were wonderful, too. David, who carries most of the story, was great, but I totally fell for Jim, who we see from varying ages starting at 19 on through to his 60s. He was a complete delight, and every time we had the story from his POV (no matter the time period), I was always happy to find

I couldn't leave the characters behind when I finished, and I am eagerly awaiting the next book. ❤

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked the attention to historical detail, especially gay culture in the various periods, and I liked that the author didn't try to make her heroes have the correct opinions out of period. There were a lot of moments that were just lovely and fitting. This is especially impressive given the author is juggling the '40s, the '50s and the '80s at various points, and running an alternate history plotline as well.
