The Map of Time: A Novel

Characters real and imaginary come vividly to life in this whimsical triple play of intertwined plots, in which a skeptical H. G.

Félix J. Palma explores this provocative question, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting—a story full of love and adventure that transports readers from a haunting setting in Victorian London to a magical reality where centuries collide and a writer’s mind seems to pull at all the strings.

The map of time was a huge disappointment..palma likes to drag every word out so eventually you are dying of boredom...he puts detail to everything which leads me to forget what he was originally explaining/ describing.
