the story is absorbing. the subject, Betty Macdonald was a fascinating person. I loved her books. Paul has done a terrific job of bringing Betty to life. Would have preferred a more skilled narrator.

Enjoyable mix of mystery, regional awareness and love story. New York policewoman in French aristocratic milieu, highlights differences in murder investigation procedures. Captivating story and characters. The narrator, Kathe Mazur is first rate in both French & English. Fought hard to stay awake till it was resolved. Parting left unfinished. Perhaps we will hear more in future books

The very best story I have read in years. Not usually my subject but the review hooked me. Literally could not turn it off. The devotion of dog and handler is told so sympathetically.
Emotional and compelling.

There is too much description of every kind.Chapter 91 and still on day 3 of murder enquiry, which is hardly touched on.

Where does Time and Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best stories in my stash and very well told. I still have the original book and have read it three times.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course, Si Morley as the protagonist is so willing to believe that there is something more than this present life. But Rubin Prien can charm the birds.

Have you listened to any of Paul Hecht’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first experience with Paul Hecht's performance and it is dead on.

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

Yesterday is just across Central Park

Any additional comments?

Also, check out the sequel, From Time To Time, also available in audible's list.
