    1. Wonderful story Always enjoy the weaving of well known as well as little known historical facts into the story The resarch into these little knwon facts to bring the reader actually back to the times and places Alex finds himself in is interesting and informative I like the way the book ended, and am ever hopeful that a new Alex Balfour story will be written.I like the author s style of writing My own wide scope of history and historical novels allows me to really enjoy the small tidbits of exte [...]


    2. This would be one of my favourite books I ve read this year The main character, Alex Balfour, is a historian who involunatarily travels in time and most of the book is set during the American Civil war where he meets people like Lincoln and Walt Whitman.It was a great mix of time travel with a few paradoxes thrown in like when Alex hasn t heard of 9 11 action, drama and angst I liked the relationship between Alex and Molly too although they spent most of the story just missing each other Unfortu [...]


    3. The latest and hopefully not last novel in the Alex Balfour books Alex is a history professor with a genetic and uncontrollable predisposition to travel into the past I may be biased because the author has become an acquaintance, but on the other hand, I discovered his writing before we became acquainted So these really are terrific stories In Time of War may be the best of the lot.


    4. I started out loving this book Just as I did the previouse three books But when I got to the end I was appalled The ending of this book ruined the whole set for me I have no desire to read any other works by this author.
