    Transported from the mid-twentieth century to New York City in the year 1882, Si Morley walks the fashionable "Ladies' Mile" of Broadway, is enchanted by the jingling sleigh bells in Central Park, and solves a 20th-century mystery by discovering its 19th-century roots. Falling in love with a beautiful young woman, he ultimately finds himself forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past. A story that will remain in the listener's memory, Time and Again is a remarkable blending of the troubled present and a nostalgic past....

    Mark says: "Best time travel novel; my very favorite audiobook"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Time and Again to be better than the print version?

    My husband and I love to listen to this together and usually listen as we are travelling in the van. Better and more fun than reading solo in a book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The descriptions of New York in the late 1800's and the premise of the story that we could go back in time and experience the earlier time. There is also the contrasts of the different types of lives the people lived then. We can actually feel that we are there with the main character. And, of course we enjoyed the end!


    What about Paul Hecht’s performance did you like?

    Somehow it seems easy to tell the different characters he portrays. He has a wonderful rich voice, although it can lull me to sleep if I am tired!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Where the past comes alive.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the ending, too. We gave our first copy of the book to someone to read and never saw it again, but our first introduction was on the radio in Kalamazoo so we fondly remember it being read to us chapter by chapter.
