The Mine

The Mine - John A. Heldt Romance, Time Travel, Historical it’s all in the Mine. John portrays 1941 very accurately, it is obvious that he has done his homework and checked all his facts. Although the main thing about this #book is Romance.

What would you do if you found yourself suddenly back in US 1941, just before the war and Pearl Harbor? I’d freak out, there is no way I could live without the internet! Or credit cards, Or mobile phones, Or …. well you get it. Joel however, takes things in his stride, managing to get adopted into a family, meeting not one but four lovely young women, dating two of them and winning a bucket load of cash at the bookies. Well wouldn’t you take advantage if you knew the race outcome already, or the lottery numbers?

Joel is a remarkably believable character, he is developed slowly throughout, ensuring that the reader gets a good grasp on his character and foibles. He seems to be genuine and friendly, although I thought he was a bit of a cad at one point. Gilly was another character I liked, she has a very strong character and won’t let anyone tread on her, definitely takes few prisoners.

So overall, this is a slow, steady story, developing at just the right speed, exciting, suspenseful and one any romantic will enjoy. I did.
