Good story...could use a few more details. Not a romance, more of an adventure.
Written in the mid-80's, some of the attitudes and technology is dated, but the plots and snappy repartee remain fresh. There's nothing wimpy about Beverly Sommer's heroines...
UNBELIEVABLE. NOT TO MENTION UTTERLY IMPOSSIBLE. One minute Lauren Hall is munching fries in a San Francisco McDonald's, then before you can say Richter scale, she is flung back---Sony Walkman, T-shirt, Levis and all---back to 1906. So begins the hilarious and heartwarming tale of a 1980's lady on her own in 1906 San Francisco. With a little imagination and a lot of help from a whiskey-loving reporter named Early Cruz, she realizes she's not alone...and her adventures have just begun.
I choose Time and Again because of this really great post done by Magdalan at Monkey Bear Reviews. I was in the mood for something different and this one fit the bill, a time-travel novel that takes place in turn of the century San Francisco, California. Lauren Hall is one minute at a McDonalds in 1980 in the middle of an earthquake only to find herself transported thru time to 1906. Early Cruz, a reporter for the newspaper takes pity on Lauren and allows her to live as his housekeeper.
Time and Again is a short book coming in at 253 pages. It is a quick, interesting read. I think I finished it easily in a day. The neat thing about this book is that it really is unlike any other romance I have read. The time travel portion of the book came off as rather genuine especially Lauren and Early's reaction to the time-travel. Early is very much old fashioned in comparison to Lauren's more modern proclivities. There is not a lot of romance between Lauren and Early, but what there was developed slowly. If you are looking for something a little different from the usual, give this a try (if you can find it, LOL).
