Publisher's Summary

Ophelia's husband disappears at the most inopportune times. After 10 years, she's not sure why she puts up with it, other than the fact that she's loved him since she first saw him in college, before the physics experiment that started Will involuntarily sliding through time. And there's nothing anyone can do about it. Or is there?

Enthralling short story

I enjoyed this short time travel audiobook, it kept my attention and I was sorry when it ended. It is a well written and narrated story that captured my imagination and soon had me pondering about the nature of reality. I quickly became attached to the main characters and loved the way the narrator portrayed them. She captured the worry, confusion, frustration and emotions well, her tone was pleasing and she gave the characters individual voices. At first I thought the story was going to be like 'The Time Travels Wife' but it wasn't, it concentrated more of the effects going into the past can have on the future. This is a well rounded, complete, very entertaining short story that leaves you hoping the author will continue to build on this themes.

Entertaining short time travel story

Time's Anchor is an entertaining short audiobook about a man who randomly travels time and his wife who he always returns to. The story has its twists and turns along with a satisfying ending.

The narrator does an ok job. She speaks clearly, but she has a certain rhythm to her narration that I didn't care for.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.

We've had Rufus for 6 years, snce he was a kitten.

Any additional comments?

A clever twist on the time travel concept. A small group of students who knew each other at college become reluctant time travellers, each individually unexpectedly vanishing to reappear moments, hours or days later, which can cause far more difficulties for the wives left behind than might at first be obvious. Then one day, a traveller returns, murdered. Something has to be done. But where had he been?

This clever, twisting short story is well written, and nicely narrated by Ann Bumbak whose pleasant, steady and unemotional voice tells the story from the wife's perspective. Unusual and well worth the listen. My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me a complimentary copy of Time's Anchor, via Audiobook Boom, without any expectations in return.

Fascinating short romance!

What if you made certain decisions and the result is something that changes the fabric of your existance? This is a tale that explores that very concept.

Unlike most sci-fi stories, this one is simplicitic in nature making it feel more realistic/ possible. This is a story about a group of friends who innocently participate in an experiment that result in them randomly sliding through time, making subtle changes to history. The challenges of this on their personal relationships is immeasurable and the choices they have to make are difficult. Knowledge about the possibilities, about the future and past is the real currency in this story.

This is a very easy book to listen to. It displays the strength of love and commitment. But mostly it leaves the reader pondering life's 'what ifs.'

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
