    I loved the pace of the book. The back and forth between June's perspective and Peter's perspective pushed the book forward so well. Left me wanting more, in the best possible way. I loved the concept

    A thought provoking story of love, loss, & finding meaning in life that makes you think about the meaning of history, time, & what makes one human all while reading a very enjoyable action packed book

  • Marguerite C.

    The story grabbed me from the beginning & held my interest completely. It is very fast paced with short chapters which worked very well in getting a lot of information out without becoming a textbook.

    I loved this novel. The world that Wilson brings to life is riveting, the characters are immaculate, and the question he presents to the audience is well worth discussing. Writing style was on point.
