I think that White has somewhat lost his way in the third book of the Garrison Fitch series however, I do look forward to reading where he goes in the future. What I found especially disappointing was the way he transitioned to a totally new story line without sufficient build up. Book 2 left you wanting to know more of Garrison and Heathers story yet White just seemed to jump right to the Kerrigans out of the blue. Also, found his unrealistic morals of all the 1947 characters way to straight laced, it was like reading something written by an actual 1947 virgin. The dialogue between the 1947 characters was also stale and sterotypical, meant to read BORING! Brought it back some in the end, big plus was the new plot twist involving Bat Garett. Will read the next in the series (if there is one) for sure, hope he gets it back on track.

For half of book 3, I loved following new characters in a new world and a tough war. I felt their pain and hurt, their success and I wanted the relationships to grow, but.......I kept asking what does this have to do with Garrison and where is he......Little did I know history, no matter which history, has a way of correcting itself and ending up being where it is supposed to be.
Mr. White gave us a new Russian controlled world in Book one, now, in Book 3, we get a glimpse of German and Japanese rule as the Republic of Texas valiantly fights to maintain independence. I great and insightful view into the what if's of time.
In the 2nd half of the book, Garrison is there to answer questions and lead us to consider more ramifications of time travel. But in the end, Bat, leaves us wanting to know more...........................what happened and why?
All in all and good read and storyline for the 3rd in this series.
