Time After Time MOBI ☆ Time After  MOBI :í A magical love story, inspired by the legend of a woman who vanished from Grand Central Terminal, sweeps readers from the 1920s to World War II and beyond, in the spirit of The Time Traveler s Wife and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.On a clear December morning in 1937, at the famous gold clock in Grand Central Terminal, Joe Reynolds, a hardworking railroad man from Queens, meets a vibrant young woman who seems mysteriously out of place Nora Lansing is a Manhattan socialite whose flapper clothing, pearl earrings, and talk of the Roaring Twenties don t seem to match the bleak mood of Depression era New York Captivated by Nora from her first electric touch, Joe despairs when he tries to walk her home and she disappears Finding her again and again will become the focus of his love and his life.Nora, an aspiring artist and fiercely independent, is shocked to find she s somehow been trapped, her presence in the terminal governed by rules she cannot fathom It isn t until she meets Joe that she begins to understand the effect that time is having on her, and the possible connections to the workings of Grand Central and the solar phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge, when the sun rises or sets between the city s skyscrapers, aligned perfectly with the streets below.As thousands of visitors pass under the famous celestial blue ceiling each day, Joe and Nora create a life unlike any they could have imagined With infinite love in a finite space, they take full advantage of the Terminal City within a city, dining at the Oyster Bar, visiting the Whispering Gallery, and making a home at the Bilt Hotel But when the construction of another landmark threatens their future, Nora and Joe are forced to test the limits of freedom and love.Delving into Grand Central Terminal s rich past, Lisa Grunwald crafts a masterful historical novel about a love affair that defies age, class, place, and even time.

    Thanks to the publisher for providing a free review copy via Netgalley.As with many other time travel romances, the central conflict is that the traveler doesn t age the way the non traveler does Despite the repetition of that plot element, this is still a good story Joe and Nora are engaging and believable characters, and it s fascinating to see how cleverly they deal with the challenges of Nora ap
