The first and the second of two full-length stories about time travel and two brothers and two sisters in the Time Travel science fiction romance series. It is sometimes referred to as the Hornblower-Stone series.

My Take

Time Was and Times Change are both soft romances, but with a twist of time travel tossed in. They’re sweet with no great dramas and very predictable.

The Stories

Time Was finds Libby Stone, cultural anthropologist, rescuing Caleb Hornblower when his ship crashes. It’s a shy scholar versus the intrepid sky pilot as they each try to understand the other.

It is cute that this man from the future veers into his own cultural assessment of Libby and her circumstances. He’s certainly a challenge to Libby’s mental health as she’s not accustomed to a man with his lack of inhibition, let alone he has no idea when he is.

Herbal Delight is the company her hippie dad, William Stone, started in this very cabin — a company famous and one of the top ten in Caleb’s century. Caroline Stone is the girls’ mother and an artist whose work has stood the test of time. Sam is the baby.

Times Change finds the brilliant and driven Jacob Hornblower furiously flying back through time to rescue his brother while 300 years earlier, the perennially restless Sunny Stone is wondering why she thought she needed the peace and quiet of her parents’ isolated cabin. She’s still hunting for her direction, always trying something new.

The Cover and Title

The mint green cover is very softly pretty with its verdigris sundial and smudged pink flowers and accurately reflects the mild storyline.

The title is a reflection itself of the first and second story as the first is followed by the second, and it’s Time and Again.
