More detail in the outdoor scenes in New York City would have shown a clearer contrast in the hero and heroine’s backgrounds. The scenes in East Texas were more visual than the scenes set outdoors in New York City in the 1930’s. The indoor scenes in both New York City in the 1930’s and East Texas, then and now, helped this reader suspend disbelief, but a trip in the charmed elevator might have given Wellman a better understanding of Amber’s more modern life. Although we know time travel is not possible, Ms. LaRoque makes it believable.
