This is a great love story based on the idea of time travel. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In this novel she threads the romance of the old west, with the wonder of present day Las Vegas. She brings together two hapless victims to a quirk of physics, causing her to be transported first to the old west version of Las Vegas, Nevada. When she and her new found lover stumble back into the future well.... all manner of things happen and as always she makes it entertaining as well as thought provoking.
She includes great suspense and mystery, and causes the reader to press forward, wondering at every step of the way, paragraph by paragraph where she is going with this story, and HOW she will resolve it.
The heroine Mairie Callahan goes skydiving with her brother who has only a few months to live. She expected to land somewhere outside of Vegas, but instead has landed back in the past.
Jack Delaney adopted by the Paiute Indians, is seeking solace on a spirit journey of sorts to find his soul he'd lost fighting in the Civil war. Then a beautiful woman falls from the skies.
Then things get turned upside down. I personnel would not recommend this book. I couldn't even finish it. I really enjoy books that take women from the future and shot then back into the past. but that only goes one way. I don't like characters going into the future. Its too confusing to see what the world is going to be like and to try and understand technology like the TV who are not talking to you personally.
