But Ned's time-lag is so bad that he's not sure what the errand is - which is bad news since, if he fails, history could unravel around him ...

Review by

A delightful romp through Edwardian England which pays an homage to 'Three Men in a Boat', as well as a search for a particularly ugly piece of church furniture.By far the lightest of the Connie Willis books I have read so far. This is one where you can hope for a happy ending. Enjoy a happy mixture of misunderstandings, romance, time travel and general confusion of time-lagged characters trying to remember which job they're supposed to be sorting out and when.
