This engaging summer read, set in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, combines history, romance, and time travel! In 1995, lawyer Jeremy Sloan is in a bicycle accident that thrusts him back in time to 1895. There, he meets Lora Lockerby, fresh from the Pullman Strike trial and troubled over her relationship with Clarence Darrow. Jeremy must contend with being marooned in time and save Lora from the worst boating disaster in Lake Geneva’s history, all while dealing with his feelings for a woman from a hundred years in the past.
