MY THOUGHTS⇢

 

Overall, a very satisfying story, especially the ending...it was the perfectly whipped icing on a cherry chip cake...and I love cherry chip cake. Cary Hite was a fairly exceptional narrator, too.

 

The science behind the time-travel in this story is easily believable and altogether palatable. It's informative without being too informative. The perfect blend of science fiction and a dollop of literary. Evoking some very poignant emotions, dealing with the love we have for a child, and even the love we have for a significant other.
