2018. When Odette discovered the body, she went into shock. Blood everywhere; bullet wounds; that strong reek of sulphur. But when the inquest fails to find any answers, she is frustrated. Who is this dead woman that haunts her dreams? And why is everyone determined to cover up her murder?

Brilliant

The story has intrigue and depth, but is easy to follow - it’s clever, well thought out, absolutely loved it.
The narrator is extraordinary too, really gave the characters life.

Not great

Not great. Interesting idea but superficially addressed. Not convincing and therefore rather boring to listen to.

Beautiful Story

A beautiful story, romantic, thrilling, time-travel, murder mystery. Very well written, very well read. I both wanted it to end so I could learn the secrets and didn't want it to end as I wanted more.
Loved it

Time travellers coping with knowing too much

A quite interesting take on time travel, in this story about the health risks of time travelling, the emotional burden time travellers may have to carry, and the types of crimes and crime solving involved with time travelling. The novel tells the stories of a group of women, interconnected through different time periods, some travellers, some just trying to cope with time travelling consequences and rules.

I loved this book!

This book was really fun to listen to. The plot comes from the perspective of different characters and from different times, which makes you want to go back and re-listen afterwards!

interesting,

well narrated. I'm not sure I agree with the ethics. Also if nothing can be changed, what is the point of time travelling?

Just no...i'm stunned this made it to published.

I don't review books all that often but this one i just HAD too. If you can get passed the VERY british wiring and the VERY british narration that combine to make it so hard to even understand the story, then the writing will really test you.
The story is given in multiple threads with each thread being centered around a person in a time period or going to/from many, that's not hard to understand or flowow. What is, is when the threads are about the same person, going back and forth in both threads or when a thread starts up just to give you one bit of into with no context.
Add to this the characterization of the conclave and its members had them all acting like borderline sociopaths, had me gritting my teeth in constant aggravation of the implausibility. I found this to be the worst time travel story i have read/listened to in my 40 years and could not even bring myself to finish it.
Now submitting a refund request with Audible.

OMG

I thought I would enough this book but no. To much darting between to many characters in a very strange story. Hard to keep on track and no real ending . Days of retracting the story to follow the line. Promising but not fullfilling
