After discovering an old photograph, an elderly antiques dealer living in present-day Los Angeles is forced to revisit the history he has struggled to deny. The photograph depicts a man and a woman. The man is Peter Force, a young frontier adventurer who comes to New York City in 1901 and quickly lands a job digging the first subway tunnels beneath the metropolis. The woman is Cheri-Anne Toledo, a beautiful mathematical prodigy whose memories appear to come from another world. They meet seemingly by chance, and Peter initially dismisses her as crazy. But as they are drawn into a tangle of overlapping intrigues, Peter must reexamine Cheri-Anne’s fantastic story. Could it be that she is telling the truth and that she has stumbled onto the most dangerous secret imaginable: the key to traveling through time?

Set against the mazelike streets of New York at the dawn of the mechanical age, Peter and Cheri-Anne find themselves wrestling with the nature of history, technology, and the unfolding of time itself.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Thomas Moore | 1/23/2014

    " A captivating story that takes you back to the early nineteen hundreds to tell a story of mystery, intrigue and love. Under the streets of New York thousands of workers are digging the tunnels of what will be New York's subway system. But what seems to be a straight forward operation, might really be a cover for something much more important. The rivalry between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla and their quest to find a way to travel through time provides the background for the story of a young mechanic, Peter Force, and a mysterious woman who claims to have traveled through time following the fall of her home, the Kingdom of Ohio. Did she really travel through time? What are J.P. Morgan, Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla searching for under the streets of New York? What happened to the Kingdom of Ohio and did it ever really exist at all? "

    " I was intrigued to pick up this book because of its incorporation of New York City history, including the construction of the subway tunnels. The story was indeed intruiging, but the writing was so bad that I had to give it up half way through. "
