The long-awaited sequel to Time and Again . Si Morley is back and the world may never be the same.
When Time and Again was published in 1970, it immediately developed a loyal following that has grown with each passing year. With this book, Jack Finney returned to the same magical territory and finds Ruben Prien still at work with the Project, still dreaming of altering man's fate by going back in time to adjust events... to interfere, some might say, with destiny.
Once again, the conduit to that bygone era is Simon Morley, the man who actually proved himself capable of traveling back and forth in time. This time, he does so with a grand purpose: an attempt to prevent World War I.
From Time to Time is a tale that is both thrilling and nostalgic, magical and terrifying, charming and full of suspense.
Listen to the first book, Time and Again.

"In more ways than one, reading Jack Finney will transport you back to a better time." (The Washington Post Book World)
Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.
I really liked the first book, although found the premise of how they shift from one time to another to be too simplistic. This time he barely has to try, and he is all over the place. But aside from that, the first story ended so well, and they had to undo that to tell this story, and maybe that is where it fell down.
I'm not returning it, but don't need to hear it again. Hope this helps you decide.
Steven King endorsed this book in the afterwards of his new novel 11-22-63. I'd already listened to this but thought King's novel was a tad bit better.
