What ages would I recommend it too? – Fourteen and up.
Length? – A couple of day's read.
Characters? – Memorable, several characters.
Setting? – Fantasy, modern and 3,000 years ago.
Written approximately? – 1989.
Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more. What is the purpose of saving selfish Zachary?
Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.
Short storyline: Zachary has moved on. Once he abandoned Vicky while Binney died in her arms, he moved on to Polly. He is as selfish as ever. Polly meanwhile, has become a tesseract, and when the gate is open, can visit 3,000 years ago. Zachary goes later, and she follows. He is willing to let a hungry tribe kill Polly to supposedly save his failing heart. In the end, he regrets it, too late. She is saved and decides she will never speak to Zachary again, once he is safe back in their own time.
Notes for the reader: Domesticated cattle didn't exist 3,000 years ago in New England, even if Druids did make it here and stay (which is highly likely). So, they wouldn't have had butter and cheese in that one scene.
