Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reading a great short story can feel like escaping into a movie theater: you emerge after an hour or two, blinking in the daylight and feeling as though you’ve just lived another lifetime. New York Times bestselling author Kate Quinn is widely beloved for her ability to bring the past to life in historical novels like The Alice Network and The Diamond Eye, and she puts a truly imaginative twist on the concept in this brief but unforgettable adventure. For American naval officer Matt Jackson, a literal voice from the past is the one thing that could save his life.

When Lily Baines, a viscount’s daughter working for British naval intelligence in 1943, intercepts Matt’s SOS at sea—from 2023—she has every reason to dismiss his transmission as a hoax. But that spark that drove her to volunteer for the war effort won’t let her turn her back on a fellow naval officer.

I love speculative stories, and this short read set off a thousand what-ifs in my mind. But Kate’s writing packs in so much more. Matt and Lily’s bravery and ingenuity had me breathless as a race against time unfolded in two different centuries. Settle in—you’ll be swept away in no time at all.

—Kjersti Egerdahl, Editor
