Publisher's Summary

Imagine a universe where, on November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes's Gunpowder Plot was successful. The explosion resulted in a schism that split the British Prime Universe into two more planes of existence: one that went forwards in time (clockwise), and one that went backwards (counterclockwise, or widdershins). On All Hallows Eve every year, the bonds between these multiverses are strong enough to pull a body from one plane of existence to the other.

Edith Hornby lives in the clockwise universe - Edward Moriarty lives widdershins. But they meet often enough throughout their lives to form a bond even stronger than that which holds the universes together....

Alethea Kontis is the best-selling author of the Books of Arilland, including the Woodcutter Sisters and The Trix Adventures.

Thoughts

My immediate thoughts were lovely and horrible, beautiful but sad. I'm not sure if I want more or am glad for the shortness. Great story.

Crossing Time For Love

While I was listening to this story, I was a bit confused, but then it finally clicked. This is a sweet story about love crossing time/dimensions, hurt, pain, and then finding that same love again, but you now make the rules. The narration was great and I would recommend this short story.

Leaves you wanting more

This is a beautifully written tale with a very engaging plot. I have listened to it three times now, and it is just supurb.
