Two of my favorite subjects, The Civil War and Time Travel, are beautifully married together in a terrific story by Fred Holmes—Return To Sender! Firstly, the sci-fi time travel genre can either be horribly bad or wonderfully well done: There really is NO in between. Secondly, since there is no scientific definition of time, this usually allows the writer to run amok in their self created time travel world—much to the chagrin of most serious readers. So although time travel is one of my favorite genres, I am always extremely leery of any and all time travel novels (as I am of alternate history novels). That being said, Return To Sender is a gem. Basically, this time travel novel centers around changing the outcome of the Civil War. But, and this is huge, it is done in a subtle way and spends a lot of time on the “how” so as NOT to be the usual over-the-top gratuitous time travel thriller. The author uses due diligence concerning how very little changes in the past can lead to monumental changes to the future. This insures realism to Return To Sender and kept the story fresh and engaging. The dramatic conclusion is superbly done and will give the reader pause as to the profound realities of changing the past—even for the best of reasons!
No gratuitous sex, language or violence. Action is timely and well presented.
Character development was very well done which greatly enhanced the plot by providing realism. The reason so many time travel novels fail is 1. Lack of realism, 2. Flawed attention to detail, and 3. Weak to nonexistent character development. Return To Sender has all three in abundance, ergo it is a success.
It is always rewarding to find a good book about time travel as so many are ghastly. Looking forward to Mr. Holmes next time novel Escape from Helmira.
Mr. Holmes chose an interesting time in history to suggest changes made via time travel. In this time of turmoil it is entertaining to consider what we might change via a "splice in time" as presented in this book.
I highly recommend spending time with this novel....you won't regret the way it changes your view and makes one think...."what if"???
surroundings and characters to a degree that I feel a part of the time and place as events occur. Depending on your political leanings
you have the opportunity to take sides in the story line. The flow of the tale kept my interest and I looked forward to to each chapter.
