If you're looking for a love story, it truly is one, although from the cover I couldn't tell and I let it languish on my kindle for 3 months before I took the plunge. That would be my only complaint. I wish the cover reflected more of what happens rather than just his stumbling upon the temporary doorway to the past. There's no sex but there are a few instances of profanity, so I can't say it's a clean romance, but it's close. Two thumbs up! :)
Joel started out as somewhat of a typical frat guy. He has a “kind-of” girlfriend and has spent his college career enjoying himself, along with earning a degree in geology. The experiences he has in 1941 shape him into an adult, rather than a college kid. When Joel arrives in 1941, he has to fend for himself and find a way to survive when he has nothing except a couple of quarters. He uses his wits to get himself from Helena, Montana to Seattle, Washington. Once in Seattle, he makes friends with Tom and through Tom he becomes friends with a group of girls, including his future grandmother, Ginny. Joel finds a job and living arrangements and a new “family” in 1941.
The historical aspects of this novel are so interesting. Joel travelled to May, 1941, just a few short months before the attack on Pearl Harbor and the US entering World War II. Joel knows what is coming, including the fate of his new friend, Tom, but he can’t tell anyone. No one would believe him even if he did tell someone. But it’s a struggle to let fate take its course. The 1940s world that John Heldt weaves is so clear, I felt like I time travelled along with Joel. I particularly love when the characters go to see Citizen Kane in its first run.
Above all the other aspects of this novel, however, the love story is by far the best part. I am a sucker for a good love story and this one was so sweet without being cheesy. Joel and Grace are so good together and really bring out the best qualities in each other.
Everything else that I want to say about this novel contains more spoilers than I want to give, so I will just leave it with this: read this book. If you enjoy historical fiction and romance with just a splash of science fiction, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. I can’t wait to read the next installment in the Northwest Passage series!
I recommend this book for young adults and older. There’s nothing inappropriate for teenagers, but the characters are young adults themselves, so it is likely young adults and older will appreciate the characters and the story more than younger readers.
