From the Back Cover
A mercilessly agonizing memory can sometimes break a person and render them incapable of facing even the commonplace without being unnerved.
Sometimes it can endow a person with near super human ability to take action in any circumstance.
Vic's memory from a thousand generations past has emboldened her with the daring and determination to embark on an epic quest that may last a lifetime and on any day could take her life. Yet she is prepared to challenge any peril and venture into any danger, known or unknown. She has learned from her mysterious avatar Nat-ul, even when you face the gravest of threats, you need not be brave, you just need to do what needs done, for whatever menace you face, no matter what seems to go wrong, "It's not hard. It's just living."

Victoria Custer, a 1920’s explorer and adventurer from Nebraska has dreams of a past life. A looong past life. She feels a strange connection to a cave girl warrior named Nat-ul and her beloved Nu, who lived 100,000 years ago. Or did they? Victoria, or “Vic,” is drawn to exotic lands, and whether in Africa, Mexico, or points in between, always seems to find a way to get into - and instinctively out of - trouble. Accompanied by her brother, she seeks the next big thrill while also looking for answers to what may have been her past.
The best historical fiction novels make you want to learn more about the time and places, and if the novel weren’t so fascinating, I would have stopped to research as often as I read (I did have to see what a Peccary is. I want one.). Helpfully, at the end, there are several notes concerning things mentioned in the book. Mr. Gill has done his homework.
I haven’t been so excited to find a new series since reading a random Robert B. Parker Spenser novel many years ago. Very well written and exciting, Time Doesn’t Matter is a novel adventure-seekers need to read!
This is story is beyond original in that Gill took a public domain work from author Edgar Rice Burroughs and re-wrote parts of it to create his story. Burroughs' original story, "Eternal Savage", introduces these main characters but did not continue as promised so Gill did the job for him many years later and it is outstanding. The story of Victoria, or Vic, who is living in the 1920's yet has the ability to flashback and remember places and events from long ago. While visiting an estate in Africa, she has one of these visions that sets her on a quest to find Nu's reincarnation. Taking her brother, Barnie, along for the ride, this is an awesome and pretty intense adventure with some very likable characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read from the opening pages on. It was a delight to re-visit some of Burroughs' work and then to see what Gill did with it, which was spectacular. Vic was very easy to like and the adventure itself had some great action alongside some good historical references. Definitely recommend this one.
This book is a fantastic re-introduction to what Edgar Rice Burroughs first wrote in 1913. It offers a great refresher for those who first fell in love with the story, but the best is what follows as the story doesn't end there. The adventures of Vic, of her eternal lover Nu/Stu, is one that I love to read in this story and in this series. Each book is a real page turner in its own right. I really love reading this story and I hope that you will to because I promise you that the end of this story is not in it's last page, rather it is just a new beginning that makes us want to know more.
